About DH International
DH International, an important player in the mobile payment and money transfer industries
DH International Ltd. is a pioneering service provider for electronic money transfers and payments using mobile phones and a Web application. Our solution, MoneyCell, is the fusion of a physical wallet and a mobile phone. Everything a real wallet contains can now be transferred into the MoneyCell system and used for all transactions purposes. Whether you wish to pay for goods at a merchant store, to transfer money to your family, to accumulate loyalty points, to use or reload your gift cards, to pay for parking, to purchase your transit ticket or for any other transactional purpose… MoneyCell is the solution!
Owned by G. Holdings, an international investment corporation that has developed its expertise in the financial services industry and built up significant capitalization over the last decade, DH International is presently managed by Mr. René Lopez. As a president and CEO, Mr. Lopez brings over 40 years of experience in international finance, manufacturing and marketing with multinational corporations such as Alcatel-Alsthom and GEC Alsthom, where he has worked as president and CEO. DH International relies also on the thorough knowledge and expertise of professionals in the fields of finance, legal and compliance services, management, interactive marketing and business development to provide reliable and secure services. As for our Information Technology developments, they are executed by AXON I&D, a Canadian high-grade banking system development company. DH International’s primary role is to act as a facilitator for mobile payment transactions using NFC contactless technology (Near Field Communication). Moreover, the company will be a third party operator, independent from other conventional players in the payment industry, which gives us the advantage of being by far the most effective and efficient way to establish partnerships.
With over 23 million mobile phone subscribers, a penetration rate of nearly 70% across Canada, the arrival of new suppliers and the multiplication of smartphone devices, needless to say that the mobile industry will continue to offer new features and will focus on innovation to acquire a competitive advantage. While mobile phones are at the center of the consumers’ lifestyle who depend on these devices more than ever, suppliers keep on adding value by integrating several tools such as navigation, radio, TV, emailing, social networking, Internet access... On the global market, several examples of NFC technology implementation have shown great compatibility with mobile device offers. Mobile payment solution will definitely become one of the most interesting added service!
Our goal is to be part of this fully expanding multi-billion dollar industry. For that matter, our role as a financial service company is to commercialize our intellectual property, to deploy our product in the near future and to demonstrate its valuable assets.
