This includes text banking, mobile internet banking, J2ME banking, real time and configurable alerting engine, 2-factor authentication, mobile payment and P2P stored value account transaction engine.
TynTec operates an SMS transmission service using a portfolio of connections to the global telecoms infrastructure (SS7) and a purpose-built operator grade SMS-Centre. This set-up enables TynTec to offer a strict SLA to its customers, providing timeliness, quality and visibility.
