xmBilling is a mobile platform that provides customers with a convenient and secure way to review and authorize automatic billing transactions, easing the challenges of automated and volume-based billing. The system sends the user a text message with a URL leading to an online e-bill where they can review details of the bill and authorize the payment via credit card with the use of their PIN number.
The xmOne mobile platform provides an array of encrypted mobile services, including top-up, payment processing, emergency notification and marketing, ideal for students and higher education facilities. xmOne interfaces with a school’s existing campus card account system to enable students to perform a variety of banking transactions from their cell phones. The university or college benefits from increased usage of the flex-dollar ecosystem, reduces overhead from ADMs, and can be customized to each school’s individual brand.
Mobile Lads is guided by a management team with a unique blend of in-depth technical expertise in wireless channel communications and a solid background in business strategy and consumer analysis.
