ClairMail Partners With Misys to Extend Its Global Mobile Banking Footprint

Strategic Partnership Enables Misys to Offer ClairMail's Industry Leading Mobile Banking Solution to Customers Across Europe, Asia, Middle East, and Africa

NOVATO, CA--(Marketwire - November 12, 2009) - ClairMail, Inc., the leader in mobile banking and payment solutions, today announced a strategic partnership with Misys plc (FTSE: MSY.L), the global application software and services company, that extends ClairMail's mobile banking reach and global presence across Europe, Asia, Middle East, and Africa.

Misys, which has more than 1200 financial services customers, including all of the world's top 50 banks, will integrate ClairMail's best-of-breed mobile banking and payment platform into its own offering and market it as a critical addition to its Misys Mobile solution. Misys Mobile is a component of the Misys portal platform, which includes front-office applications for teller, Internet banking and call center services.

Through integration with ClairMail's platform, Misys Mobile will provide its bank customers with a flexible, fully-integrated solution, which combines the benefits of all three modes of mobile banking -- SMS, mobile web and ClairMail's unique Smart Client application -- in one streamlined interface. ClairMail and Misys have developed pre-packaged modules that are integrated with a range of Misys core banking services including Misys Midas Plus, Misys Equation, Misys Bankmaster and Misys BankFusion Universal Banking.

"Our partnership with ClairMail significantly enhances our existing mobile solution and provides our bank customers with comprehensive mobile banking and payment functionality, while also providing a new channel for marketing and revenue opportunities," said Olivier Berthier, Solutions Director, Transaction Banking, at Misys. "This new integrated solution enables banks to develop deeper engagement with their customers by delivering personalized content and rich mobile banking functionality, and maximize adoption by providing a superior mobile experience."

"Our agreement with Misys represents an important milestone for ClairMail, as we continue our rapid growth and further extend our global reach into new international markets," said ClairMail CEO Pete Daffern. "By partnering with a global market leader, we will benefit from the access to Misys' strong customer base, as financial institutions around the world continue to realize that mobile is the strategic channel of the future."
