IMPESA at FinovateEurope 2017

IMPESA®, developers of the innovative SaaS solution Monibyte® and a growing suite of FinTech applications for corporate and retail payment methods plus fraud mitigation, will take the stage at FinovateEurope 2017 in London’s robust financial district at Old Billingsgate Market Hall in February.

Finovate conferences showcase cutting-edge banking and financial technology in a unique, short-form, demo-only format. Companies are chosen through a rigorous application screening to ensure that only the best hand-picked technologies are featured. Each Finovate event gathers over a thousand FinTech Innovators over the course of two days. Attendees include a who’s who of top-ranked financial institutions, investors, industry analysts, media and tech startups.

“IMPESA was chosen among hundreds of companies through a highly competitive process to demonstrate our product in front of global leaders in the FinTech, payments and innovation industries. We are proud to participate at Finovate and are looking forward to presenting a compelling demo in February. Our products give banks a unique competitive advantage, and we are poised not only to show off cool technology, but to share a solution that instantly creates revenue for our customers,” stated Mario Hernández, Founder and CEO.

The company’s Monibyte software allows corporate clients to customize how they manage their business transactions through an easy-to-use, secure, cloud-based portal or iOS/Android app. Truly self-service, authorized managers can proactively control company finances in real-time without contacting their bank, with features like pre-authorization card settings, actionable reports and transaction alerts. Compatible with most ERPs, Monibyte eliminates the need for expense reports and saves time and money on accounting tasks.

IMPESA also offers a retail version of its product called Monibyte Lyte® for credit, debit and prepaid card users, allowing consumers a safe and secure way to manage household expenses, and their dependents’ spending. Intuitively designed, it provides a simplified dashboard to control card settings in real-time via the web or smartphone app.

IMPESA launched Monibyte in 2014 in Latin America and expanded to four countries in Central America and the Caribbean. Internationally, over 800 corporations, including large multinationals and Fortune 500 companies, use Monibyte to manage their credit and debit cards. The company’s global expansion into the US, Europe, Asia and Africa is timed perfectly for its inclusion in FinovateEurope.

“As one of the world’s most important financial centers, and now often referred to as the world’s top FinTech destination, London is a key location for us to network with industry peers, and showcase our financial technology solutions,” Hernández said. “We will also be scheduling one-on-one meetings with banks and corporations during the event, and encourage interested parties to reach out to us in advance.”
