Mobile access to financial information, personal commerce services, and anytime, anywhere shopping will soon be at consumers’ fingertips. Software infrastructure developer 724 Solutions Inc. and Brodia, a personal commerce and payment infrastructure company, signed an agreement to enable interoperability between the 724 Solutions Financial Services Platform and Brodia’s mobile wallet services.
The agreement extends the capabilities of 724 Solutions’ financial services infrastructure software with a gateway-level connection to Brodia’s Identity Management System (IDMS). The resulting service will allow consumers to securely access their credentials stored in the IDMS, and securely perform transactions on a variety of browser-enabled mobile devices accessing FSP- based financial services.
“Enabling mobile access and connectivity to best-in-class e-commerce applications like the Brodia IDMS represents the fulfillment of another key piece of the 724 Solutions m-commerce plan,” said Chris Jarman, executive vice president, m-Commerce, 724 Solutions Inc. “Both companies’ commitment to developing solutions that simplify consumers’ lives and to offering the highest level of financial institution-grade security will make this integrated technology a winning choice for financial institutions, merchants and mobile carriers throughout the world.”
Work to enable interoperability between the two technologies will begin immediately.
“Brodia’s digital wallet, made universally available, is a fundamental building block for mobile commerce,” said Brodia Chief Executive Officer Ron Martinez. “By integrating this core Brodia platform service with the 724 Solutions FSP, we’re working to rapidly make mobile commerce a simple, useful and valuable option for consumers.”
This agreement furthers 724 Solutions’ commitment to developing open, flexible and scalable solutions for the financial services industry. Since its first mobile commerce initiatives were announced last spring with companies like MasterCard, and Bank of Montreal with Canadian retailer Indigo.ca, 724 Solutions has moved quickly to bring together valuable elements to build-out its m-commerce strategy — including the recent acquisition of Spyonit.com to enable the TellMeWhen vision of notification technology, and now this interoperability agreement with Brodia.
