Telefonica Movistar Chooses XIUS's Payment Manager Solution to Power its Electronic Prepaid Recharge Program

WOBURN, MA, June 7, 2011 /CNW/ - XIUS, a leader in delivering innovative telecommunications solutions for mobile operators and MVNOs worldwide, today announced that Telefonica Movistar has chosen XIUS's Payment Manager Solution to power its electronic prepaid recharge service in five Latin American countries: Panama, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Guatemala.

Telefonica is one of the world's largest telecommunications companies, offering communications solutions in 25 countries. The five combined operations which have selected XIUS, total more than 6.4 million mobile telephone subscribers.

"These five countries are markets with steadily growing telecommunications sectors. Fixed line tele-density in these areas was traditionally very low, and as a result the mobile phone has become the preferred method of communication, with prepay as an especially popular option," says G. V. Kumar, Managing Director of XIUS. "Our Payment Manager solution offers subscribers in these areas a simple way of topping up the minutes on their mobile phone and gives Telefonica greater flexibility in the management of its distribution chain."
