  • 4. INTRODUCTION. Fourth
Screen
Inc.
ApS
is
a
technology
company
established
in
late
2005,
 focused
on
the
development
of
services
and
media
for
the
mobile
market.
 
 The
company
originally
focused
on
three
key
areas:

 
  Licensing
and
development
of
mobile
video
content
  The
development
of
a
flash
memory‐based
mobile
content
distribution
 platform
  The
development
of
an
advertising‐supported
content
delivery
platform
 for
mobile
content
 
 Fourth
Screen
has
partnered
with
key
players
in
the
mobile
sector,
including
 Nokia,
Dangaard
Telecomm,
and
Kingston
Technologies.

On
the
content
side,
 the
company
has
worked
with,
among
others,
the
BBC,
Zentropa,
and
mobile
 operator
Telia
Sonera.

 
 As
the
Company
developed
its
knowledge
and
experience
within
the
mobile
 services
market,
it
identified
a
great
business
opportunity
for
the
development
 of
a
mobile‐based
system
to
facilitate
mobile
money
transfers.
 
 Over
the
course
of
2008,
the
company
further
developed
this
idea
working
with
 a
number
of
key
partners
to
develop
a
mobile
payment
platform,
which
we
call
 
 













.
 
 The
technology
platform
behind


 
 is
being
developed
after
the
 experiences
of
a
product
team
with
an
average
of
5
years
developing
and
 implementing
mobile
payment
solutions.
The
platform
itself
supports
all
mobile
 networks
and
handsets,
and
incorporates
the
highest
security
standards
in
the
 industry.
 
 
 


 




‘s
platform
is
meant
to
be
an
open
service
built
to
appeal
to
mobile
 operators,
users,
banks,
money
traders,
and
other
commercial
partners
looking
 for
a
Mobile
Money
Transfer
&
Payments
Platform
(MMT
&
MPP).
 
 More
importantly,
the
company
sees
the
product
as
a
tool
with
vast
potential
in
 helping
expand
financial
and
mobile
services
to
a
large
number
of
people
who
 today
are
marginalized
to
these
and
the
benefits
that
they
can
provide.
 
 It
is
the
firm
conviction
of
Fourth
Screen
that



















can
become
a
highly
 profitable
business
and
social
development
innovator,
by
building
a
simple,
 elegant
solution
that
can
put
the
power
of
money
into
the
hands
of
millions
of
 people
today.

brick
and
mortar
bank
branch
system
can
only
go
so
 far.
With
cell
phone
service
and
a
local
shop
handling
the
 cash,
mobile
banking
can
reach
every
village
and
barrio
 in
the
developing
world.

can
enable
us
to

left
out
of
the

 IT’S IN YOUR POCKET. 
 I
n
2009
mobile
phones
are
everywhere.
Inside
your
 pocket,
your
spouse’s
purse,
in
your
child’s
(or
 nephew’s)
hand.

 And
here
is
the
interesting
part.
 They
are
trully
ubiqutous.

 Unlike
other
gadgets,
mobile
phones
are
used
by
everyone
 and
transcend
the
normal
barriers
of
class,
geography,
and
 culture.
 They
are
used
everywhere
where
people
are
found.
From
 the
largest
metropolis,
to
the
most
remote
villages,
people
 use
their
mobile
phones
like
no
other
device
before
or
 since.

 R
 egardless
of
the
constant
additions
of
functions
such
as
 cameras,
GPS,
music
players
and
other
developments
 geared
towards
turning
them
into
the
Swiss
Army
Knife
of
 modern
devices,
studies
have
found
that
mobile
phones
are
 mostly
used
for
two
things:
talk
and
text.
 But
overwhelmingly,
phones
are
used
to
text.
 Every
minute,
every
hour,
everyday.

mobile
phone
access
to
money
and
financial
 services
on

 With
txtMoney,
you
can:
 
 1. Send

“top
up”
services
and
 accounts
used
on
a
regular
basis
(like
utilities,
phone
 card,
insurance,

 MOBILE REMITTANCES. 
 A
 s
the
most
profitable
m‐money
service
available,
 remittances,1
are
key
to
realizing
the
potential
of


 txtMone
.

 Recognizing
this,

the
service
will
be
marketed
and
 supported
through
a
network
of
partners
such
as
 remittance
services,
mobile
agents,
Money
Transfer
 Operators
(MTOs),
Micro
Finance
Insdtitutions
(MFIs),
and
 other
business
targeting
migrant
workers
and
the
under
 banked.2

 The
partner
network
will
be
used
to
sign
customers
into
 the
service
as
per
international
remittance
regulations.
 Once
a
customer
is
signed
in
into


txtMon’
,
sending
 money
anywhere
within
the
network
is
not
complicated.

 After
signing
up
for
an
account,
all
it
takes
is
for
a
customer
 to
send
a
text
message.
And
the
money
is
transferred
 handset‐to‐handset.
Anywhere
in
the
world.
Instantly.3

 T
 he
funds
available
through
txtMoney
‘s


mobile
wallet
 system
can
easily
be
used
for
replenishing
or
“top
up,”
 credit
to
any
account
subscribed
to
the
system.4

 This
feature
is
particularly
attractive
to
the
under
banked
 and
for
people
of
limited
means
and
in
remote
areas
who
 can
avoid
wasted
time,
transport
costs,
security
risks,
and
 other
existing
hindrances
in
the
payment
of
many
basic
 services5.
 Naturally,
the
system
can
be
used
for
all
forms
of
payment
 of
services
to
anyone
with
a
mobile
phone.

 BRANCHLESS BANKING. 
 With
tMoney



‘s
mobile
wallet,
customers
will
be
able
to
 check
balances,
transfer
funds,
or
make
payments
from
a
 mobile
phone
using
a
text‐based
solution
which
avoids
 common
challenges
such
as
multiple
menu’s
that
add
 complexity
to
the
service,
OS
development
and
signature,
 and
adapting
to
various
screen
sizes
and
resolutions.6

 
Money



‘s

platform
is
designed
to
work
under
several
 multi‐language
modules,
and
to
marketed
to
reach
the
un‐ banked
(or
under
banked)
masses
in
the
developing
world,
 where
distance,
cost
of
transportation,
and
security
have
 contributed
to
marginalize
millions
from
acces
to
financial
 services.7

 BUSINESS MODEL. 
 T
 he
product
is
being
developed
as
a
branded
service
suite
that
can
 be
sold
as
a
stand
alone
mobile
remittance
service
(through
 scratch
cards
and
top
up
terminals
such
as
cashiers
at
convenience
 stores),
or
as
a
mobile
service
that
“powers”
m‐money
remittances
to
 MTO
partners
in
the
market.
 
 The
service
will
be
initially
marketed
to
migrants
in
the
US
as
an
 alternative
mode
to
other
remittance
services
already
in
the
market.
 
 Signup
of
customers
into
the
system
will
be
done
through
a
network
 of
agents
that
are
already
selling
remittance
and
mobile
services
and
 subscriptions.

 
 A
FEE
WILL
BE
COLLECTED
PER
REMITTANCE,
WITH
A
PART
OF
THAT
FEE
BEING
 PAID
to
the
agents
for
signing
up
customers
into
the
service.
 
 After
signature
into
the
system,
payment/
transfer/
currency
 exchange
will
take
effect
via
the
use
of
existing
service
providers
for
 such
services.
 
 At
pay
out
points,
txtMoney
will
use
the
existing
network
of
payout
 points
available
through
the
service
provider’s
network.
 
 In
addition,
working
with
MFI’s
and
in
concert
with
service
providers
 requiring
regular
payment
collection
(utilities,
telephone,
schooling)
 txtMoney
will
encourage
the
use
of
its
m‐wallet
for
payment
and
 purchase
of
goods
and
services.

 STRATEGY. Key
to
develop
the
product
will
be
the
alliance
with
partners
with
a
 stated
interest
in
servicing
the
under
banked,
as
well
as
working
 with
companies
looking
to
extend
their
service
offerings
to
new
 market
segments.
 
 Also
of
note
is
the
fact
that
the
current
economic
crisis
and
the
 significant
shrinkage
of
investment
in
IT
by
private
enterprise,
8
 which
in
itself
opens
great
opportunities
for
the
marketing
and
 developing
of
a
branded
service
for
mobile
financial
services.
 
 On
this
vein,
the
company
also
plans
to
exploit
the
sell
of
WHITE
 LABEL
systems
based
on
our
platform
for
customers
searching
to
 drive
their
own
mobile
payment
services.
 
 All
of
the
alliances
underlined
here
are
being
developed
with
an
eye
 towards
partners
with
existing
distribution/
marketing
 infrastructures
within
the
target
market.
 
 The
company
has
selected
the
US/
México
and
LatAm
corridors
as
its
 first
target
region
for
the
product.

 END NOTES 























































 1
Remittances
are
one
of
the
most
expensive
(from
the
customer
side)
money
services
 available.
Highly
profitable
for
the
business
involved,
they
have
suffered
a
significant
reduction
 in
recent
fees.
However,
the
World
Bank
estimates
that
further
reduction
in
fees
and
costs
 could
dramatically,
increase
volume
and
profitability
for
remittances.
 2
Target
Market
&
Strategic
Partners.
At
it’s
basic
level,
txtMoney
can
be
seen
as
a
service
 developed
to
provide
a
key
basic
service
to
millions
of
“under
banked”
people.

While
the
 solution
will
differentiate
itself
from
other
services
by
reducing
costs
at
a
significant
market
(a
 fact
which
recent
reports
from
GSM
and
CGAP
underline
as
crucial
for
the
system
to
succeed),
 the
strategy
is
to
grow
the
service
through
attracting
the
under
banked
to
the
use
of
its
mobile
 wallet
suite.

For
more
details
of
partners,
see
pages
24,
25
for
more.

 3
“Instant
transfer”
in
terms
of
the
product
(remittances,
balance,
inquiries,
etc),
largely
 depends
on
network/
service
provider
settings,
as
well
as
individual
arrangements
with
MTO’s
 and
payment
processors,
however,
the
system
processes
the
transaction
in
seconds,
and
in
the
 vast
majority
of
cases,
the
transactions
take
less
than
a
minute
to
process.

 4
Payment
of
Services
via
m­wallet.
Basically
any
service
that
accepts
payment
via
credit
 card
or
banking
systems
the
world
over
can
be
processed
via
txtMoney’s
m‐wallet.
A
key
idea
 here
is
the
assimilation
of
as
many
business
and
services
into
accepting
and
promoting
the
 mobile
platform,
which
should
not
be
very
difficult,
as
there
are
many
advantages
to
payment
 recipients
to
use
the
service
over
other
alternatives.
 5
Transport,
Security,
and
other
issues
faced
by
the
“under
banked”­
and
millions
of
 citizens
in
the
developed
world
are
a
result
of
structural
and
social
considerations
that
do
not
 exist
in
the
developed
world.
For
example,
in
Mexico
bands
of
criminals,
working
with
inside
 men,
are
known
to
hit
banks
and
individuals
for
robbery
as
they
make
their
way
out
of
a
bank,
 or
from
receiving
cash
from
remittances.
In
addition,
access
points
to
ATM,
banks,
and
public
 service
offices
are
limited
and
remote
to
many
through
out
Latin
America.
A
mobile
wallet
 solution
can
go
a
long
way
in
diminishing
many
of
these
obstacles
and
dangers
to
the
average
 customer.
 6
TXT
based
solution
vs.
Software
of
SIMM­
based
alternative.
In
contrast
from
PCs,
where
 there
is
one
dominant
operating
system
(Windows
OS),
mobile
platforms
are
far
more
 complicated.
There
are
many
mobile
OSs
in
the
market
today:
Symbian,
iPhone
OS,
RIM
 (blackberry),
Windows
Media,
Palm
OS,
Linux,
and
J2ME,
but
to
name
a
few
leading
platforms.

 In
addition,
while
some
recent
reports
project
that
by
2010
there
will
be
over
2.1
billion
PCs
in
 the
market,
there
are
3.1
billion
mobile
phones
out
in
the
market
today.
So
faced
with
that
scale
 of
a
challenge,
the
best
alternative
is
to
develop
an
application
run
and
made
for
texting,
which
 uses
a
universal
technological
thread,
regardless
of
mobile
OS.
The
same
argument
works
 against
SIM
card
based
solutions,
in‐phone
resident
applications,
and
carrier
exclusive
(or
 handset
exclusive)
applications.
 7
Virtual
Access.

As
noted
previously,
many
inherent
factors
of
life
in
the
countries
of
the
 Southern
hemisphere,
are
real
hindrances
for
large
segments
of
their
populations.
Providing
a
 virtual
space
from
where
people
can
access
their
money
is
a
key
advantage
that
m‐banking
has
 over
other
technologies.
 8
Investment
in
IT
by
the
private
segment
has
been
reduced
dramatically
over
the
last
two
 quarters.
This
drop
has
been
dramatic
in
the
banking
segment,
which
showed
its
biggest
drop
in
 the
past
year
in
a
decade.
