CAPE TOWN, South Africa -- First National Bank (FNB), one of the leading banks in Africa, has selected Clickatell, the world's premier mobile message carrier, to extend its inContact alert service to Namibia.

FNB's inContact service immediately alerts customers of any transactions on their bank accounts via a text message to their mobile phones. This allows customers to monitor and detect any fraudulent activity on their accounts, confirm transactions and keep up-to-date with their account balances.

The immediate and reliable delivery of text messages is essential for the success of the alert service. FNB chose the Clickatell gateway for its redundant routes into Namibia as well as its real-time delivery capabilities and 24 x 7 support.

"Guaranteed, real-time delivery is critical for transaction-based messages," says Len Pienaar, CEO FNB Mobile and Transact Solutions. "You can't have messages evaporate, even if it is one in a thousand. The Clickatell gateway and its real-time reporting mean I can be sure our customers will receive their text alerts every time."
