The Crédit Mutuel Arkéa Group, France’s second regional banking group, has Chosen Maporama to enhance its I-Mode site with its locator facility.
Users will benefit thereby from a fast and simple access to a powerful service allowing for localising the nearest bank agency, ATM, or merchants accepting the new Moneo electronic wallet.
To start a search on their I-mode enabled phones, users only need to enter a postal code or an address. They obtain an exhaustive list of agencies, ATMs, or “Moneo-compatible” merchants. Each address is accompanied with its detailed situation map and telephone number. In addition, for the Group’s bank agencies, opening hours are also available.
“Through this agreement with the Crédit Mutuel Arkéa Group, Maporama demonstrates again its capacity to attract players in their respective domains. Maporama is the only global location-centric provider to offer perfect compatibility with the I-Mode platform. Several international customers are already using our location-centric solutions build for this new platform”. says Laurent Vermot-Gauchy, Maporama’s CEO.
“After launching the first Internet banking service in 1995, then on digital TV and WAP-phones,” comments Charles Cabillic, Remote-Banking Product Manager, “the Crédit Mutuel Arkéa Group extends its remote service offering to I-Mode telephones. It increases thereby its advance in terms of home-banking and confirms its status as bank of proximity”.
