“Atos Origin brings its expertise to movo, the first French service enabling individual customers to send and receive money with their mobile phone launched by the Caisse d´Epargne”

Paris, 30 October 2006

Atos Worldline, an Atos Origin Company, will be handling the introduction of movo, the first French solution, developed by the Caisse d´Epargne, for transferring money by SMS between individuals customers. Atos Worldline processes the flows on its technical platform and places at the disposal of the Caisse d´Epargne tools for managing the transactions, notably monitoring and security indicators.

 

This innovative service, offered exclusively to the customers of the Caisse d´Epargne, allows them to make a payment by SMS to the person of their choice from a mobile phone. With this service money transfers can be performed easily and quickly, 24/7.

 

The use of movo requires a simple prior registration on the site www.movo.fr. Customers with a Caisse d´Epargne current account and a bankers' card wanting to make a payment, then take out a subscription. The person receiving the funds simply needs to have a bank account at the Caisse d´Epargne or any other bank. Subsequently, movo will be offered to all bank account holders as a mobile payment solution between private individuals.

 

Within the framework of introducing this service, Atos Worldline is handling :

  • The processing of the incoming data flows via SMS+ and IVR (Interactive Voice Response), on its technical platform developed and hosted specially for the Caisse d´Epargne,
  • The management of the transfer process : the debiting of the issuer and the crediting of the beneficiary in a distributed and highly secure environment
  • The supervision of the transfers with provision of piloting tools
  • The interconnection to the mobile telephony operators

These works are being supervised and coordinated by GCE Newtec (a Groupe Caisse d´Epargne subsidiary).

 

At present this service uses SMS´s and an IVR as means of communication, and it will soon be extended to the WAP and iMode channels.

 

Implementing this service for the Caisse d´Epargne enables Atos Worldline to simultaneously combine its experience in mobility and its expertise in the processing of financial flows.
