Taisys Affiliate Shanghai F-road Wins 1st Prize In The Wall Sreet Journal’s Financial Inclusion Challenge


TAIPEI, Taiwan, Feb. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire=KYODO JBN/ —

World-renowned financial news publication, The Wall Street Journal, invited
enterprises from around the world to join its Financial Inclusion Challenge
(the Challenge) to showcase their solutions to the problems of financial access
for the poor. Taisys Technology (Taisys) affiliate, Shanghai F-road Commercial
Services (F-road), was judged by The Wall Street Journal to have a meaningful
impact on financial inclusion in Asia-Pacific. F-Road uses SIM-overlay
card-based technology delivered by Taisys’ technology to expand mobile banking
coverage to even the most rural parts of China. It was named the winner in the
technology category of the Challenge.

Challenge Judge Michael Schlein commented, "F-road’s focus on rural areas
addresses an often overlooked issue in financial inclusion – bringing financial
services to lower-population areas farther away from urban centers."

Szechwan farmer Wu Yulong, user of F-road’s service issued by local bank said,
"I can transfer, pay bills and most importantly I can now easily extend my loan
to buy the fertilizers. I also now conduct transactions for all the other

In a vast country like China there is often a far distance to travel to the
nearest bank. Therefore, the crucial matter to financial inclusion lies with
the banks to shorten the distance between customers and bank services. F-road
‘s easily understood and highly accessible solution, based on Taisys’ patented
SIMoME technology, is now applied by over 15-million users from 1,300 banks in
27 of China’s 31 provinces, handling more than RMB 5 billion daily transactions.

Taisys’ patented SIMoME technology uses the SMS channel in a users’ phone,
which overcomes the issue of weak signals in most rural areas. The technology
is a highly secured device that also stores cryptographic keys, algorithms and
process data, so financial institutions can issue safe mobile banking solutions
to customers.

Country manager of International Finance Corporation Simon Andrew said, "We
think this has much more potential than just China, but also a lot potential in
other countries where there are a large rural populations." F-road and Taisys
have set an ambitious vision for achieving universal financial access. The
Financial Inclusion Challenge win proves that their effort has already begun to
bear fruits and help people in need.
