Modefin wins the Tyme Challenge to deliver its digital banking innovation in retail payments, across ASEAN in partnership with Tyme
Tyme, the tech company that powers South Africa’s first digital bank with more than 2.5 million customers, announced its Tyme Challenge to evaluate potential fintech partners for its “high tech, high touch” digital banking initiative for roll-out across Vietnam, Malaysia and the Philippines. The Tyme Challenge invited fintechs to demonstrate their digital banking prowess by answering Challenge questions on Singapore’s Monetary Authourity APIX platform.
Tyme announced Modefin as the winner of its Tyme Challenge question addressing retail payments from its new corporate headquarters in Singapore on December 10. Tyme will be entering into a partnership with Modefin to launch a disruptive model for last mile delivery of financial services to the end customer. “We launched the TymeChallenge to introduce our Tyme model to the ASEAN community, and are thrilled to have met Modefin, one of our three winners. We look forward to engaging with the Modefin team as we expand our footprint across Asia. ” said Tyme Executive Chairman Coen Jonker.
Modefin will be deploying some of the innovations from its Omni-presence Banking suite that will allow Tyme to connect and deliver services to their customers at supermarkets, convenience stores and other merchant locations via Modefin’s In-Store Banking platform. The In-Store banking capability will deliver convenience, ease and speed by enabling transactions on Sales Till and other Point-of-Sale terminals, that are widely used in South East Asian markets, underpinned by Tyme’s existing code-based transaction system APIs, and associated reconciliation and settlement processes.
