ClairMail Named as Leading Mobile Banking Innovator for 2009 by Bank Technology News

Influential Banking Publication Unveils the 2009 BTN Innovators List

NOVATO, CA--(Marketwire - December 3, 2009) - ClairMail, Inc., the leader in mobile banking and payment solutions, today announced that it was named by Bank Technology News as one of The Top 10 Companies and Technologies of 2009. The prestigious ranking was part of the publication's 8th Annual Innovator Awards, which were announced in the December issue of Bank Technology News.

Distinguished from thousands of other companies and technologies that provide vanguard products and services to the financial services industry, ClairMail was selected by Bank Technology News as an innovator for how the ClairMail solution has "pioneered the mobile banking triple play by offering messaging, mobile web and client applications on an integrated platform," through its unique Smart Client technology.

"This is a tremendous distinction and we are extremely proud to be recognized by BTN for our efforts to provide financial institution customers with comprehensive and integrated mobile banking services that enable banks to achieve very aggressive adoption goals," said Pete Daffern, CEO of ClairMail. "While some other companies claim to offer mobile banking across their versions of the triple play, ClairMail is the only company that provides a streamlined and integrated user experience across all mobile communication channels on a single, intuitive interface."

"Mobile banking is evolving rapidly into a distinct channel that will rival online banking as an essential means for consumers to bank," said Mark Schwanhausser, senior analyst in charge of multichannel financial services for Javelin Strategy & Research. "For it to take flight, though, financial institutions must build a platform and work with vendors that provide access to all consumers with a powerful combination of browser, SMS text alerts and applications. It must further demonstrate its value with money-movement capabilities integrated with alerts and personal finance management tools, and assure customers that mobile banking is safe and secure."

The ClairMail mobile banking solution processes millions of transactions per month for its customers across retail banks, credit unions and card service companies, and has experienced accelerating growth over the past year. ClairMail provides consumers with easy access to their accounts via multiple modes, including SMS, mobile web and client application, on virtually any mobile device. Consumers can perform a variety of activities including check account balances, transfer funds and view transaction history. They can also sign up to receive personalized alerts proactively delivered by the bank and define their preferences for alert triggers (low-balance thresholds or event occurrences that activate alerts) and frequency.
