Monitise Launches Next-Generation Omni-Channel Consumer Alerting and Engagement Solution

Alerting+ Enables Financial Institutions to Deliver High-Engagement Communications That Resolve Customer Issues in Real Time and Create New Revenue Opportunities

SAN RAFAEL, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/11/14 -- Monitise plc (LSE: MONI), a global leader in Mobile Money solutions, today announced the launch of Alerting+, a next-generation consumer alerting and engagement solution for financial institutions (FIs). For the first time, FIs utilizing Alerting+ can evolve alerts from one-way notification to real-time two-way conversations that build trust and unlock new opportunities for revenue generation, customer acquisition and retention, fraud reduction, risk management and customer engagement.

"As a bank, we have an opportunity to leverage Monitise's Alerting+ capabilities to play a more prominent role as a trusted advisor to our customers," said Greg Jacobi, Senior Vice President at Webster Bank. "Mobile banking is quickly becoming a tool of mass empowerment and we want to reach our customers where they are, offering them vital communications about their bank account and finances. Alerting+ gives us a unique ability to connect with our customers, beyond what any other alerting system can do, and communicate with them in real-time, developing two-way conversations that resolve critical account issues and help them manage their money more effectively."

Alerting+ enables any FI, regardless of their core mobile banking platform, to enhance enterprise-wide messaging with a host of industry-first capabilities such as multi-step Conversational Alerts, Alert Aggregation, Omni-Channel Message Delivery, Alert Authoring and Cross Channel Consumer Preference Management. FIs can proactively communicate with and engage their customers through SMS, Email and Push Notifications. FIs can use two-way and multi-step alerts available with Alerting+ to advise customers if there's any unusual transaction activity or potential fraud transactions and offer the unique ability to take immediate action on their account. With more advanced business processes integrated into Alerting+, FIs can design relevant cross-sell and upsell offers, opening up new revenue-generation opportunities.

"Mobile is quickly becoming more than just another communication channel for financial institutions," said Lisa Stanton, President of Americas at Monitise. "Alerting+ creates new opportunities for FIs to connect with their customers and help them manage their money more effectively based on the immediacy and relevance of alerts. This evolves alerting to the next level of consumer interaction, allowing FIs to connect with their customers and build more robust relationships."

Alerting+ from Monitise brings a set of enterprise and engagement alerting capabilities that provide FIs with better mobile customer management to build truly mobile relationships. By moving beyond simple one-way notifications and basic two-way exchanges, FIs are in a unique position to harness the real power of mobile, leveraging the high engagement of a front screen application. Integrating advanced business processes based on consumers transactional behavior and account status builds real enterprise business value by engaging customers with relevant conversations in real-time.

"Mobile has redefined the relationship that banks can have with consumers, opening the door for new levels of engagement and opportunities to deliver a value-added experience," says Jason Malo, Research Director at CEB TowerGroup. " Providing real-time, contextual alert capability creates actionable conversations to help consumers manage their finances. Banks who do this well can develop more trusted relationships with their customers, improve customer retention and creating new revenue opportunities."

For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
To manage complex web services with lots of calls to the cloud, many businesses have invested in Application Performance Management (APM) and Network Performance Management (NPM) tools. Together APM and NPM tools are essential aids in improving a business's infrastructure required to support an effective web experience... but they are missing a critical component - Internet visibility.
Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...
Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...

The speed of software changes in growing and large scale rapid-paced DevOps environments presents a challenge for continuous testing. Many organizations struggle to get this right.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
Hardware virtualization and cloud computing allowed us to increase resource utilization and increase our flexibility to respond to business demand. Docker Containers are the next quantum leap - Are they?! Databases always represented an additional set of challenges unique to running workloads requiring a maximum of I/O, network, CPU resources combined with data locality.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...
