Emerge Mobile is the first company in South Africa and Africa to achieve international security certifications for its mobile point-of-sale (“MPOS”) system that allows merchants to use their smartphones to accept chip-and-pin card payments from customers; having recently achieved Payments Council International Payment Terminal Security (PCI-PTS) and Europay, MasterCard and Visa (EMV) Level 1 and 2 certifications for their ‘Edge’ adapter.

Capital Eye Investments Limited (“CEI”), as a private equity / venture capital company focusing purely on technology and associated assets with a particular focus on emerging markets, backed Emerge Mobile in March 2012, as a venture capital investment in a start-up business.

Emerge Mobile are now well positioned both locally and internationally to embrace the opportunities present in many emerging markets predicated on regulatory requirements to migrate to more secure EMVCo inter-operation systems, through both white-label B2B opportunities, as well as direct to the market through their own B2C “iKhokha” brand.

Capital Eye Executive, Anton Gaylard, was joined by Emerge Mobile MD, Matthew Putman; invited by Visa to participate in a presentation to Nigerian Acquiring Banks on the trends and developments in banking and associated offerings in Lagos, Nigeria. Emerge Mobile were one of four international Mobile Point-of-Sale companies invited, highlighting the attractiveness of their broader MPOS solution in both local and international markets.

The fraud protection and security measures offered by EMV compliant chip and pin card acceptance devices have resulted in a growing movement to stipulate the use of such technology across commercial banks in many regions. Furthermore, infrastructural limitations in many developing markets make the combination of such technology in a mobile POS solution a very relevant, necessary and attractive offering.

CEI is a private equity / venture capital company focusing purely on technology and associated assets, with a particular focus on emerging markets and the opportunities present in many African regions, investing behind both start-up and mature cash generating technology companies.
