Renowned for delivering the best value, service and network to customers and agents in 36 markets worldwide, Utiba’s Mobility platform was selected by Digicel in 2012 with the strategic objective to create a new and improved base system to be utilized across select operations. Richard Matotek, CEO of Utiba, commented, “On behalf of the entire team, we would like to congratulate Digicel on the successful migration and re-launch of their TchoTcho Mobile Financial Services brand now utilizing Utiba’s Mobility platform. Our platform provides innovative solutions needed to service their growing customer and agent base and will assist them in further penetrating Haiti’s unbanked populace and Digicel’s global customer base.

Mr. Matotek continued, “Looking ahead, we remain highly confident in our ability to facilitate the completion of Digicel’s multi-country launch of our Mobility product. With new features planned for Caribbean and Pacific operations, it is our belief that once completed Digicel’s robust service offering will be one of the strongest in the industry”

Mr. Matotek’s sentiments were echoed by David Sharpe, General Manager of TchoTcho Mobile in Haiti. “Mobile Money represents a new frontier in Haiti that has the potential to exponentially increase the ease and efficacy of purchases, transfers, and overall banking functions. Utiba is a clear leader in the industry, providing a strong foundation to TchoTcho’s and Digicel’s service delivery that will allow customers to have the best possible experience when it comes to Mobile Money.”
