Joob mobile banking solution seeded in system integrator's cloud

Jade Software’s Joob mobile banking solution is being hosted on Gen-i’s ReadyCloud Server infrastructure-as-a-service environment, the companies have announced.

The new solution allows financial institutions to develop and deploy mobile banking applications in a fast, secure and affordable manner, according to the vendor.

Herman Rooseboom, Jade Software’s director of Joob Strategy and Partners, says the need for the solution comes from the explosion of smart devices. “Research shows that 42 percent of tablet and 39 percent of smartphone owners now use these devices for everyday banking,” he says.

“The financial services industry is changing rapidly and therefore innovation is essential in this sector as increasingly, competing on price and product alone is no longer enough.”

According to the director, this is a “unique offering in New Zealand and rare across the world, and is of particular importance to financial services organisations with fewer resources or funds to develop bespoke applications”.

Transaction and customer data is stored in a secure, environment hosted locally in one of Gen-i’s tier 3 data centres. Additionally, Joob clients have access to Gen-i’s helpdesk for technical support and monitoring services.

“Jade is a great example of a New Zealand business delivering innovative solutions. We are delighted to be supporting this level of innovation within the financial sector,” says Leanne Buer, Gen-i’s acting general manager – Marketing.

“Our clients increasingly demand the ability to interact with their staff and customers through mobile applications, as they look for ways to strengthen their end-user relationships through mobile delivery of updates, offers and alerts,” she adds.

“ReadyCloud Server is hosted locally in a world class data centre, which is co-located in Telecom’s Auckland Exchange building. This provides Jade’s clients in the financial sector using the JOOB Mobile application development platform with the assurance that their data is located in a resilient, reliable and secure environment, supported by our people here in New Zealand.”
