Misys Changes the E-banking Game With ClairMail Mobile Banking Partnership

12 November 2009

Misys plc (FTSE: MSY.L), the global application software and services company, today announces its new partnership with market-leading mobile banking and payments solution provider, ClairMail, significantly enhancing and extending its mobile banking solution, Misys Mobile.

Through a close integration of both companies’ solutions, and together with its online portal platform, Misys can now offer its customers a complete range of e-banking solutions including the latest mobile banking technologies appropriate for any customer segment. With the addition of ClairMail, Misys Mobile can now deliver SMS-based services, web-based mobile banking, and its unique SmartClient downloadable applications, all in its banking customers’ own branding.

Banks will benefit from the wealth of experience that Misys has built over thirty years of working with banks of all sizes on enterprise banking implementations across the globe. Building on the advanced integration capabilities of the platform, allowing interoperability with any core banking system or third-party system, Misys and ClairMail have developed pre-packaged modules to ensure smooth and seamless integration with the Misys range of banking applications. These include Misys BankFusion Universal Banking, Misys Midas Plus, Misys Equation and Misys Bankmaster.

In partnering with ClairMail, Misys has chosen the clear market leader in mobile banking. Used by six of the top ten U.S. banks, the ClairMail platform provides consumers with comprehensive mobile banking and payments functionality, optimising user experience across any delivery method – SMS, email, mobile web or Smart Client application. The ClairMail platform also delivers personalised and conversational alerting capabilities that empower users to conduct transactions, and respond to or resolve account activity within the mobile channel.

Not only does ClairMail offer the best of breed solution for any size of bank with any type of customer, but the company shares Misys’ approach to mobile banking.

“It is no longer sufficient to offer mobile banking in as many different flavours as possible,” comments Olivier Berthier, Solutions Director, Transaction Banking, Misys. “Banks need to partner with a solution provider that will help them maximise mobile banking adoption among their customers, while also understanding all bank-customer interaction requirements, whether via mobile phone or other e-banking channels. ClairMail and Misys have proven track records in helping customers achieve just this.”

“Today’s partnership with Misys significantly extends our global footprint into Europe, Asia, Middle East and Africa, and provides us direct access to the strategic banking relationships that Misys has in these international markets,” said ClairMail CEO Pete Daffern. “Misys is the optimal global partner for ClairMail because it shares our vision to provide a best-of-breed technology platform, rich mobile banking and payments functionality, and the tools for financial institutions to target 100 percent customer adoption in markets around the world.”
