Ingenico, Tagattitude partner on mobile money in Africa
Ingenico, a worldwide provider of payment products, announced a strategic partnership with Tagattitude, a mobile money software vendor, to deliver mobile money products in Africa. This partnership is designed to address the specific mobile money demands of the continent with the objective to establish a secured electronic transaction infrastructure which will drive financial inclusion in Africa.
Tagattitude’s mobile money platform, TagPay, supports a full range of financial services such as account management, money transfer, retail transactions, airtime, payroll services, e-commerce, bill payments, gift vouchers and more.
By combining Ingenico’s experience in the payment industry with Tagattitude’s mobile money platform, banks, telcos, payment service providers, or other financial institutions are able to transform any customer’s phone into a transaction tool. Ingenico’s commercial partnership with Tagattitude is bolstered by a technical integration allowing mobile payment and branchless banking transactions to be carried out between a customer’s phone and a merchant’s Ingenico terminal.
