BlackBerry and Digitsecure partner to bring HotRemit digital money transfers to BBM in India

BlackBerry and Digitsecure, a mobility, identity and payments platform company, on Friday announced that have partnered for secure digital money transfers in India.

HotRemit, a social wallet app developed by Digitsecure, simplifies money transfers, including sending and requesting money, mobile top-up and DTH recharge using phone numbers. It is now available on BBM.

Starting today, BBM users can initiate instant mobile payment transfers in BBM and receive customized expense reports for personal and professional expenses.

HotRemit enables real-time, secure and seamless digital financial transactions. Users can seamlessly send money to any of their BBM contacts using HotRemit without the complications of traditional money transfer. HotRemit is operated in a PCI-DSS certified environment, ensuring security of transactions and data, both in rest, and transmission.

Matthew Talbot, senior vice president (BBM) at BlackBerry, said,

“BBM is trusted by customers across the world for its reliability, control features and immediacy. There’s a growing appetite for mobile payment solutions and supporting mobile wallets, and HotRemit is another great example of how we are developing the BBM ecosystem to successfully integrate chat, social and commerce,”

Jay Krishna, founder director, DigitSecure added,

“BBM provides a convenient and instant social platform for money transfers, top-ups and expense tracking to both individuals and organizations. HotRemit is committed to social financial transactions and adding more social features that simplify day to day mundane tasks,”

The BBM-enabled HotRemit app is available as a free download at BlackBerry World, Google Play and Apple App Store.
