Financial Research Firm Recognizes ClairMail's Accomplishments in North America Mobile Banking Market
SAN RAFAEL, CA--(AllPayNews - June 29, 2010) - ClairMail, Inc., the leader in mobile banking and payments solutions, today announced it was named "Best in Class" by Javelin Strategy and Research in their new "2010 Mobile Banking Vendor Analysis" report. ClairMail was among the select companies that Javelin invited to participate in the mobile banking report and was awarded the highest number of points in each evaluation category. ClairMail continues to distinguish itself as a leader in the mobile financial services industry with this prestigious honor.
"For financial institutions to truly tap the power of the mobile channel, they must recognize mobile banking as an offering distinct from online banking," said Mark Schwanhausser, senior analyst in charge of multichannel financial services for Javelin Strategy & Research. "Leading mobile banking vendors are quickly diversifying their product offerings and strategy to serve the needs of individual financial institutions, while banks and credit unions are seeing the benefits of mobile banking through increased customer retention, lower cost, and higher customer satisfaction."
Javelin's 2010 Mobile Banking Vendor Report analyzes 12 top global vendors that offer U.S. mobile-banking platforms, and compares product functionality and summarizes key information necessary for decision-makers. The report also provides financial institutions with a guideline for their mobile banking strategies and identifies which modes of mobile banking seem to be gaining more traction among consumers. Each vendor was compared and ranked according the following criteria: product depth, multimodal (triple play -- SMS, mobile web and client applications), strategic partners. Based on the criteria, ClairMail tied for the highest number of points among the top vendors and was ranked "Best in Class."
"This is a tremendous distinction which demonstrates our continued market leadership as the mobile banking provider for 8 of the top 12 financial institutions in North America. We are extremely proud to be recognized by Javelin for our efforts to provide our bank and credit union customers with comprehensive and integrated mobile financial services that enable them to achieve very aggressive adoption goals," said Pete Daffern, CEO of ClairMail. "We continually strive to differentiate our offering by pushing innovation in the market, which is evidenced by our recent Mobile Connectivity Architecture (MCA) announcement that allows mobile banking to become a future-proof, strategic initiative across the entire financial institution that moves beyond alerts to enable complex multi-channel conversations with customers about new products and services."
