We are thrilled to announce that today we have been named by IDC Canada as one of Canada’s Mobile & Wireless Companies to Watch. Telepin was selected from a wide pool of candidates due to its market reach, leadership and growth potential.

As the lead analyst on the study, Krista Napier explains:

In developing markets, where the majority of citizens have no access to banking facilities, mobile banking offers huge opportunities for carriers. In developed countries, mobile money provides an opportunity for value-added services and improved customer convenience. However, solutions need to integrate with existing infrastructure, minimize delay for end users, and offer scalability. Telepin’s solution enables mobile subscribers to recharge their mobile airtime without the use of physical cards or vouchers, facilitates P2P money transfers, and allows for electronic bill payments. The solution puts a management layer into the operators’ network so the operator can see the merchant ecosystem, and helps drive revenue for the mobile operator.

IDC’s study (IDC #CA2TIW10), provides insight into solutions, go-to-market strategies, partners, customers, and general trends in the mobile and wireless market, and their impact on Canadian startups.
