Canadian smartphone maker BlackBerry and Digitsecure, a mobility, identity and payments platform company, on Friday joined hands for secure digital money transfers in India.
HotRemit, a social wallet app developed by Digitsecure which simplifies money transfers, mobile top-up and DTH recharge using phone numbers, is available on BlackBerry Messenger from Friday.
HotRemit enables real-time, secure and seamless digital financial transactions.
Users can send money to any of their BBM contacts using HotRemit without the complications of traditional money transfer.
“There is a growing appetite for mobile payment solutions and supporting mobile wallets, and HotRemit is another great example of how we are developing the BBM ecosystem to successfully integrate chat, social and commerce,” Matthew Talbot, senior vice president (BBM) at BlackBerry, said in a statement.
“HotRemit is committed to social financial transactions and adding more social features that simplify day to day mundane tasks,” added Jay Krishna, founder director, DigitSecure.
The BBM-enabled HotRemit app is available as a free download at BlackBerry World, Google Play and Apple App Store.
