MINNEAPOLIS, July 14, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cachet Financial Solutions (OTCQB:CAFN), a leading provider of cloud-based SaaS (Software as a Service) mobile money technologies to banks, credit unions, and alternative financial services (AFS) providers, will deploy its award-winning Select Mobile™ Money platform for SOLE Financial's Visa Paycard.
SOLE Financial, a pioneering payroll card services provider with more than 50,000 cardholders, offers U.S. employers SOLE Paycards to increase direct deposit participation. The SOLE Paycard allows unbanked employees to receive their paychecks via direct deposit to a payroll card and provides a safe, secure and convenient way for employees to access their funds at any time.
SOLE Paycard users will have access to a full suite of convenient mobile account services through Cachet's mobile platform. Users can view balances and transaction detail, pay their wireless bill, transfer funds and reload money; all from inside the app. Users will also have the ability to access their deposits within minutes with an "instant good funds" feature. The app will also offer location-based technology that can pinpoint nearby reload locations and ATMs. Powerful back-end analytics will enable employers to segment cardholder behavior as well as send relevant marketing messages to keep their employees engaged in using the mobile application
"We're thrilled to partner with Cachet to bring convenient and secure mobile financial services to our Paycard clients," said Tom Secor, co-founder and president of SOLE Financial. "Enhancing the Paycard experience with Cachet's proven mobile platform helps us to retain cardholders and attract new payroll partners. It also demonstrates our commitment to staying ahead of the curve in providing tools to better serve the unbanked."
The term "unbanked" refers to those who use non-traditional methods to access their money such as payday lenders or check cashers. "Underbanked" are those who may have access to a bank account but mostly rely upon non-traditional financial services. Accessibility to mobile banking is especially important to these consumers. Findings from an FDIC survey showed that 32.4 percent of underbanked households used mobile banking as their main banking method, compared with 21.6 percent of people with traditional bank accounts.
"Cachet is pleased to partner with SOLE Financial to help transform the prepaid experience for their payroll partners and cardholders," stated Jeffrey Mack, Cachet's president and CEO. "Cachet's Select Mobile Money application empowers unbanked and underbanked cardholders by providing access to financial services traditionally associated with bank accounts, boosting customer loyalty and extending the life of our clients' prepaid card programs."
