M-Com, an established New Zealand mobile banking and payments player, is quickly becoming a force in the U.S. The company, which had earlier this year migrated sales and marketing execs to Atlanta and landed its first U.S. platform client in Washington Mutual made its biggest splash to date when it was chosen in September as Fiserv's partner to build out the new Fiserv Mobile Money platform.
The Brookfield, WI-based financial technology firm is offering up Mobile Money as an integrated solution for its thousands of core and payments clients, although it will work with non-Fiserv apps. Fiserv launched it as a full-fledged solution covering any delivery platform: SMS/text, browser or application-based. Fiserv and M-Com are already teaming at Fiserv's Norcross, GA campus to start work on the next-gen platform that will include integration to any resident core, online or e-payments system.
