Clickatell Named as the Top Payments Innovator by the Mobile

Clickatell, the mobile messaging and Chat Commerce leader, was recently named the top payments innovator by Mobile Ecosystem Forum (MEF) at the MEFFYS Awards ceremony at this week's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The company was recognized in the Payments Category for its Chat 2 Pay functionality, which was rated one of the top 3 innovative mobile services demonstrating usability and security by the MEF community.

On February 27, 2023, MEF's 18th Annual MEFFYS Awards ceremony honored winners in seven categories. Clickatell in each category with the most votes from MEF Minute (newsletter) subscribers and MEF Members were chosen for having the best idea and trend in the mobile ecosystem.

Chat 2 Pay is a digital payment enabler provided by Clickatell, building a new channel for enterprises to request payments. Chat 2 Pay enables organizations to enhance their customer service and expand their digital commerce offerings by providing a simple, convenient, and secure method of making payments within mobile messaging channels such as WhatsApp and SMS.

Clickatell has successfully arranged the intricate relationship between mobile messaging, payments, or their customers' order management system (OMS) in the architecture of Chat 2 Pay, thereby mitigating the risk associated with merchants managing payment card details.

Pieter de Villiers, CEO and Co-Founder at Clickatell, said, "We are thrilled to earn this recognition for payments innovation in digital commerce and mobile messaging." He added, "Our legacy and leadership in payments and mobile messaging are based on the needs of our customers. We are only as successful as our customers are."

Finastra's Filogix unveils automated lender note capabilities, powered by Gen AI

Finastra | February 21, 2024

Finastra's Filogix team has unveiled new generative AI (Gen AI) capabilities in its Expert Pro Canadian Mortgage Point of Sale (POS) solution. The function automates the creation of borrower narratives (notes) that aids in lender underwriting – streamlining processes, saving time and minimizing errors for brokers. With just a single click, users can generate a comprehensive summary of the mortgage deal, covering all the relevant criteria. The content can be reviewed, edited and then sent for underwriting much faster, as compared to the traditional manual process. Content can be auto-composed in English or French, and brokers can choose the format and which elements of the mortgage application to include for a more tailored and personalized experience. Jonathan Wootten, Head of Filogix at Finastra said, "We're very proud of this significant milestone. As a leader in financial technology solutions, we are committed to harnessing the power of Gen AI to enhance our own business processes, as well as to bringing exciting innovations to our customers. In our recent annual survey, 83% of financial services professionals said that their institution is interested in Gen AI. This mirrors the enthusiasm we see in the marketplace for the new functionality in our Expert Pro solution for brokers. We look forward to continuing to bring our customers opportunities to tap into the innovative and transformative technology that is Gen AI." The Auto-Compose functionality has a secure private model at the core, which stands out from other systems built around public models. Filogix Expert Pro allows mortgage professionals to centralize their business through workflow optimization, resulting in improved consumer experience, more time to manage new opportunities, and funding deals faster.
