Can save a lot of industrial relation problems further down the line if there is a take-over of Monitise from a company which already has the skills on board which it requires.
RE: Monitise - Pay Your Contacts
what fantastic article now my Question is what does this actually mean in terms op ARPU for Monitise or is it just an upgrade for the the customer through RBS with no extra Moni coming in to MONI ?
Monitise - Pay Your Contacts
"it was downloaded by 1.7 million customers in two weeks." http://www.bobsguide.com/guide/news/2014/Oct/17/monitise-pay-your-contacts-the-power-of-partnerships-in-transforming-mobile-payments.html
If the technology was easy to copy and was not patent/copyright protected MONI would probably be out of business by now. My understanding is that this is a complex business that MONI has developed expertise in over the past 10 years. I would expect that there are protective agreements between MONI and IBM with respect to technology and trade secrets.
jmor - perhaps I'm not up-to-date on this one. What is stopping IBM copying the technology and saving themselves £600m+ in small change?
I don't know if IBM will buy MONI, but it certainly is not ridiculous given their partnership and employee transfer.
