XIUS, the mobile payments subsidiary of Megasoft, has signed a deal with TATA DoCoMo to deliver its NFC-based Mobile Touch Transaction (MTT) solutions for trials in India.
According to XIUS, the MTT solution provides electronic talk time recharge, bill payment and other services using NFC technology through the use of its self-service terminals, called Active Posters. The APs act as “virtual malls,” enabling as many as 18 retail touch points at any customer gathering point, such as a coffee shop, says XIUS.
TATA DoCoMo will trial the MTT services with customers in Hyderabad, the capital of the state Andhra Pradesh, and the sixth most populous city in India. Initial transactions will include mobile phone top-up, ringtone downloads and wallpaper downloads, according to XIUS.
