New Delhi, India, January 20, 2015: Mahindra Comviva, the global leader in providing mobile financial solutions has been featured as a key innovator of white-label mobile wallet platform by Ovum Research in its recent Decision Matrix on Mobile Wallets. The Ovum Decision Matrix is considered as one of the industry benchmarks in evaluating leading solutions in major enterprise and industry-specific technology categories.
Titled “Selecting a White-label Mobile Wallet Platform 2014”, Ovum assesses white-label mobile wallet platform capabilities from multiple vendors based on a quantitative assessment of its influence on the global wallet market, quality and breadth of the functionality provided by its platform and underlying technology. Mahindra Comviva is ranked among 6 other players, basis strength of offering, richness of functionality, field credentials, as well as service delivery and execution capabilities.
According to the report, the market has entered a new phase of development and is poised for major growth. For banks, a wallet platform capable of integrating future changes and remaining flexible to market developments is the key to long-term positioning in the mobile payments space.
