Viamericas Corporation Key Developments

Viamericas Corporation to Demonstrate its New Digital Platform, Vianex

Viamericas Corporation to demonstrate its new digital platform, Vianex, at the Money20/20 conference in Las Vegas. The Vianex platform is the new digital brand for Viamericas, which includes a consumer-facing website and mobile site, govianex.com, and the Vianex mobile app available in the iTunes and GooglePlay stores. The platform also includes new open APIs for partners to take advantage of Vianex's Money Transfer as a Service (MTaaS) capabilities. Digital money transfers involve a complex network of issuers, acquirers, pay in and pay out agents, risk management, fraud and compliance, cash management and state-by-state licensing and regulatory compliance. Creating that network and those capabilities is a slow, expensive investment that has taken Viamericas over a decade to build. The Vianex platform gives interested partners the ability to offer alternative financial services in collaboration with Viamericas on October 19, 2016, rather than years down the road. Viamericas will be demonstrating how partners can utilize the Vianex APIs to make financial services available to their customers at Money20/20, booth 332. Money20/20 Demo: The Pin4® Cardless Cash Network provides secure, real-time cash withdrawals from ATMs. People receiving money from Vianex customers can now easily withdraw the cash from any Pin4®-enabled ATM, regardless of whether they have a debit card, credit card or even a bank account. The AudioNow - Vianex integration gives audiences of audio and video apps a secure and low cost way to send money home through their IOS or Android device without leaving the AudioNow app. The Vianex modal capability allows partners to take advantage of the Vianex Money Transfer as a Service (MTaaS) with no integration and very little development. The modal acts as a plug-in for existing partner websites, and pops up when a customer clicks to send money. The entire send money transaction is completed without leaving the partner website.

Viamericas Corporation Introduces Money Transfer as a Service

Viamericas Corporation announced they are offering Money Transfer as a Service through its new digital financial services platform. Viamericas is embracing the open API economy to allow partners to expand their product offerings through their own consumer direct channels by utilizing the new ViaConnect and ViaPay APIs for money transfer, bill payment, mobile top up and PINless long distance calling. Viamericas' APIs incorporate a directed-send model which allows customers to select specific payment partners, creating a platform which provides more competitive pricing and exchange rates than can be provided by "will-call" models. The new ViaConnect and ViaPay APIs give partners access to competitive pricing and customer service through Viamericas' network. The ViaConnect APIs developed by Viamericas allow partners to connect to the Viamericas platform to offer financial services like money transfer, bill payment and mobile top up. Services can be offered through a partner's own consumer direct channels to their existing customers, giving them the power to co-brand their services with Viamericas. The ViaPay APIs developed by Viamericas allow payment partners to settle money transfers quickly and easily, while maintaining their own branding and consumer direct channels.
