COPENAGHEN, May 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Strategic Partnership Agreement between Ganart Technologies and Eurogiro provides an end-to-end solution for postal and other financial organisations to deliver international payments and remittances as well as other financial services to the "last mile". For posts and other financial service providers that seek to reach the unbanked and underserved population in rural areas, the combination of the two companies' technologies will provide fast, inexpensive, compliant and secure transactions to host-connected and unconnected rural postal branches. "Trust, flexible technology and a menu of services tailored to the needs of this market are the elements that can change their world for the better," notes Webb Edwards, Co-Founder of Ganart Technologies.
For Eurogiro, the partnership complements its own charter to provide a secure, cost-efficient international payments and remittances system with Ganart's "last mile" financial services technology solution to reach rural locations with a semi or fully self-service customer experience via a kiosk or other hardware device. "Ganart's technology advantages are the perfect complement to the Eurogiro network and its community. It allows posts, as well as banks, the ability to provide financial services reach that aid in the financial inclusion agenda," stated Tjeerd Rienstra, CEO Eurogiro.
Art Holbrook, CEO Ganart Technologies explained, "It has been the vision of Ganart to provide financial services to the world's underserved population. With Eurogiro's expansive postal network, we can collectively deliver a variety of financial services that have never before been offered, especially in non-urban areas that lack basic infrastructure systems. We are very much looking forward to working towards our common vision with Eurogiro."
