The joint venture between Rogers, Bell and TELUS called “Zoompass” has just taken home the high award of “Best Mobile Application” from ACT Canada. I’ve never heard of ACT Canada and according to their website they’re “the authority on the Canadian market” when it comes to “secure payment, secure identity management and other advanced applications”.
Zoompass is a free app that’s available on the iPhone, BlackBerry and Android devices and gives customers the ability to send, receive and request money, check account balance, review transactions all by using your mobile phone. Apparently the reasons why they won is because of their “leading edge encryption technologies” and that it’s quick, easy and that you need a pin to send money.
Best Mobile application is no joke as there’re some many organizations building apps out there. All the banks have now jumped on board such as CIBC, TD, ING etc… So congrats to all the people over at Zoompass!
