NEW IN-APP SERVICE MADE POSSIBLE THROUGH URBAN FT’S PARTNERSHIP WITH T-CETRA – Customers now able to replenish prepaid wireless minutes and data on mobile device

NEW YORK, NEW YORK – 2 Mar, 2017 – Mobile banking and prepaid wireless are on the rise. With users looking for added convenience and premium features from their mobile devices, two tech companies have found a way to deliver. Urban FT, the leading provider of mobile banking solutions to the wireless industry, has partnered with T-Cetra, a fast growing Technology Service Provider (TSP) to give their users a faster and more convenient way to top-up their prepaid wireless service.

The feature is now live on the updated Boost Mobile Wallet app, and will be rolled out to other programs in early Q2. Consumers can use Urban FT platforms to replenish their prepaid mobile account with additional data and minutes – from their mobile devices. Users of the app can access the new features by navigating to Mobile Top-Up and completing the three step top-up process: 1) select a carrier 2) enter the desired phone number and 3) enter the amount to add.

By adding these premium features to their programs, wireless carriers deploying the Urban FT platform, are able to provide their customers with a unique and engaging mobile banking experience, and ultimately reduce customer churn

T-Cetra, the leader in activation services and prepaid product solutions to the wireless carriers/MVNO industry, provides to-up integration to 80+ international wireless carriers, including more than a dozen domestic carriers. “T-Cetra’s superb technology and record for the highest levels of service made Urban FT’s decision easy and straightforward,” said Glen Fossella, chief operating officer at Urban FT. “In-app top-ups eliminate the need for cash or visiting a physical store. Plus, it promotes greater use of our clients’ mobile banking apps, which leads to greater engagement with other app features and services, and – ultimately – to greater retention.”

Abdul Akel, chief executive officer at T-Cetra said “Urban FT is the clear choice in providing mobile banking platforms to brands in the wireless space. We’re excited to be able to offer instant mobile top-ups to their clients’ customers to create a stronger value proposition in the MVNO market.”
