ATH® MÓVIL REACHED A MILLION USERS
(San Juan, Puerto Rico - February 26, 2018) - Evertec and ATH® announced today that their ATH Móvil service reached one million users.
"Since it was launched four years ago, the acceptance of this service by the consumers has been exceptional, growing at an accelerated rate and allowing more Puerto Ricans to handle payments and transfers in a more efficient and secure manner. We are proud of what we have achieved and of having made ATH Móvil the person-to-person money transfer service of choice in Puerto Rico, "said Sylvette Ramos, ATH's First Vice President at Evertec.
"ATH Móvil not only allows people to transfer money and pay businesses instantly, but it is also backed by Evertec’s technology which has the highest level of security. ATH Móvil already has the support of over 80 financial institutions. All this has helped us to celebrate having reached one million users, "said Gustavo Díaz, Product Manager of ATH® at Evertec.
At the end of last year, Evertec announced that it had integrated Siri and Apple Watch into its new features, allowing users to make transfers through these new channels. ATH Móvil users will also soon be able to make donations to non-profit organizations. "We recognize the great work done by charities for the needy, and that is why we are going to add a new functionality, so that people can make donations more easily, and together we can continue to contribute to the recovery of Puerto Rico," said Gustavo Díaz.
On the other hand, on June 2017, Evertec and ATH launched the commercial version ATH Móvil Business. This version, designed for small businesses, allows them to accept electronic payments in real time in an easy and safe way. The service already has over 6 thousand active businesses which, now more than ever, have the great opportunity to receive payments instantly from the million registered users in ATH Móvil.
