Facey Group Ltd. Completes 80 Million Electronic Transactions in the Caribbean in 3 Years

FOOTHILL RANCH, California, July 12, 2012 (Business Wire) – Emida, a leader in the global prepayment and value transfer market, today confirmed its partner, Facey Group Ltd., has successfully processed over 80 million electronic transactions in 20 Caribbean countries since its first Emida system was deployed in September 2009.

Niall O’Brien, Facey Group Ltd.’s COO said “Customers and merchants are embracing cash-paid, electronic transactions in a region where most retail customers are served by small, independent locations. Electronic eliminates the need for customers to use PIN numbers, offering convenience and saving aggravation compared to scratch cards. It is certainly now the default method for most Caribbean users to add credit to their prepaid mobile accounts – customers buy in amounts, in places and at times that suit them. Our network, based on Emida technology, extends to 12,000 active terminals processing 4m transactions each month – and it grows every month.”

“Emida sees Facey as a regional leader in the distribution of electronic transaction processing involving cash” said Martyn Fricker, GM – Emida International. “Niall and his team continue to find new ways to expand and improve their portfolio of services that use Emida technology and services. We are delighted at their success and are proud to be their partner. We look forward to supporting new services and the next 80 million transactions!”
