Taking Advantage of the Banking Industry’s Blind Spot

LONDON, June 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ —

Right now, a revolution is rocking the sleepy world of traditional finance. A single company is working to bring financial services to billions of “unbanked” people, from the slums of Mexico City to sunny southern California. Mentioned in today’s commentary includes: Blackberry Ltd. (NYSE: BB), Celestica Inc. (NYSE: CLS), Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT), (NASDAQ: OSTK), FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ: FEYE).

QPAGOS (QPAG) has developed technology that could allow millions of marginalized individuals, and their businesses, to access financial services for the first time. Through a joint venture with DPW Holdings, Inc., QPAGOS plans to soon deploy one thousand self-service kiosks throughout California-tapping into a multi-billion dollar remittance market.

QPAGOS wants to deploy thousands of kiosks throughout the United States, filling the gaps where traditional finance has done nothing and left millions without access to financial services. The deal with DPW Holdings is just the tip of the iceberg.

In time, the billions of “unbanked” throughout the world could finally have access to the world of finance. That’s a revolution on par with the invention of the ATM. And its led by QPAGOS, a little company with a big, bold vision of the future.

#1 The Unbanked 

Around the world, there are billions of “unbanked:” individuals and businesses without access to financial services. The cash economy dominates in places like Mexico, where 65 percent of the adult population lacks a traditional bank account-and where 95 percent of all transactions are conducted in cash.

Fintech solutions focus on specific problems and have the capacity to revolutionize how financial transactions are managed, conducted, tracked and organized. Yet for the billions of unbanked, fintech has offered few answers to the very basic problem of access-despite the $16.5 billion invested in fintech firms last year.

We’re talking about a population larger than Africa and South America combined-a colossal number of people totally untouched by the global financial economy. Tapping that undiscovered market could bring huge gains to innovative firms.

Think about Paypal-one of the first fintech companies, that brought bank-less transactions to millions and now has a market cap of $100 billion.

The global payments industry is worth $2.2 trillion, according to McKinsey-but 2 out of every 7 people on earth are blocked out of the system. They can’t deposit money, take out loans, earn interest or conduct any other transaction. But QPAGOS aims to help fix that, one kiosk at a time.

#2 Solution from QPAGOS 

QPAGOS (QPAG) wants to end the isolation of the “unbanked” by erecting a system of self-service kiosks in areas that lack access to traditional financial systems.

As banks are busy closing thousands of branches, reducing access for millions from financial markets, QPAGOS is seizing the opportunity. The QPAGOS kiosks use secure digital payment tech to allow customers the security they need to make personalized transactions with hundreds of registered vendors.

The company has relationships with some of the largest communication companies on the planet, including AT&T, Dish, Apple, Virgin Mobile, Xbox, Nextel and over a hundred more.

For mobile users, the company has a brand new digital wallet-“Monedero,” which allows users to track their transactions just like Paypal’s popular Venmo app.

This could be a huge opportunity-half of the world’s 2 billion “unbanked” have cell phones, according to estimates from the World Bank.

#3 Tapping Potential 

QPAGOS (QPAG) has identified a viable way to tap into the unbanked market, and it’s already made its first moves. The company has 700 kiosks up and running, and hopes to increase that to 10,000 in the next several years.

In Mexico, QPAGOS is setting up its first system of self-service kiosks. In a country where a majority of transactions are conducted in cash, and where millions lack a bank account, the opportunities for disruption are huge.

QPAGOS has already identified more than two hundred thousand potential kiosk locations, where more than 300 million transactions take place every month. Out of a population of 120 million, 36 million adults are currently “unbanked,” with a huge chunk of that population residing in Mexico City, the second-largest city in North America.

QPAGOS kiosks connect consumers to more than 140 service providers. Individuals can conduct transactions, pay bills, deposit money, and can even deal in crypto-currencies like Bitcoin. The company has rolled out a proprietary electronic wallet, called Monedero, which allows users to deposit cash for mobile app purchases and other uses.

QPAGOS has done what few fintech firms have accomplished-they’ve brought the powers of finance to the unbanked. They are looking to shake up traditional business in Mexico…and have no plans of stopping there.

#4 Welcome to America 

On June 15, 2018, QPAGOS (QPAG) took its first step towards expanding its national kiosk network. The company signed a deal with DPW Holdings, Inc., a diversified holding company, to establish a joint venture to build a network of 1,000 self-service kiosks throughout California.

Construction and installation of the kiosks is planned to take place the next 12 months. The kiosks are designed to be plugged into a network of up to 10,000 vendors that can accept digital payments as well as mobile top-up services, money transfers, cryptocurrency purchases and other financial services.

QPAGOS has already tried out its kiosks in Mexico and a dozen other markets, and the deal with DPW will bring them to the U.S. The market of “unbanked” in the U.S. is much larger than people realize: a full 7% of the U.S. population has no access to financial services. That’s nearly 25 million people.

Once these kiosks are set up, QPAGOS could start earning regularly in payment processing fees, service provider commissions, advertisement fees and kiosk rental charges. It will also likely face zero competition initially-its kiosks will be the one-stop shop for millions of Californians without access to traditional financial networks.

One niche market is servicing up to $138 billion in personal remittance payments: individuals working in the U.S. who send most of their money home to their families. Right now, individuals take advantage of sluggish storefronts like 7-11 and Western Union. But a QPAGOS kiosk could allow such remittance payments to be deposited and transferred instantly, with the company taking a small transaction fee.

The global remittances market is more than $570 billion, and nearly all of it is conducted by members of the “unbanked” population with no bank accounts and, thus, more in need of sending money easily over long distances.

QPAGOS kiosks, and the company’s secured digital platform, could make such transactions quick and easy. This is a market that no one has thought to tap, but one that QPAGOS could access with ease.

#5 Unlocking the Unbanked 

Make no mistake. QPAGOS (QPAG) is intent on bringing the fintech revolution to the world’s unbanked masses, and could make a killing in the process. It reported a 58 percent increase in revenue in Q1 2018. Its stock is up 100 percent from January 2018.

From its humble beginnings in 2014, QPAGOS has seen its revenue triple, as more of its kiosks are erected and more users take advantage of its products, including the digital wallet Monedero. Its new kiosk deployment plan with DPW Holdings could allow it to tap into markets containing 400 million people.

Erecting these kiosks costs very little, and most of the maintenance is covered by rental fees-local businesses will pay to have kiosks close by, since they bring additional business.

QPAGOS’ (QPAG) has already taken Mexico by storm. Now, through its deal with DPW, it’s bringing its revolutionary tech to those in need within the United States.

Other companies to watch as the fintech revolution takes off:

Blackberry Ltd. (NYSE: BB) made its name as a cell phone manufacturer, but many don’t realize that Blackberry is actually providing mobile cybersecurity for government agencies worldwide. It’s also playing security consultant. A major victory for BB came in when it won the right to sell its secure messaging tools to the U.S. government.

As the fintech revolution heats up, Blackberry may very well carve its own place in the movement, and investors are sure to be playing close attention to its share price.

Celestica Inc. (NYSE: CLS) is a manufacturer of electrical devices used in IT, telecommunications, healthcare, defense and aerospace industries, though it recently has shown a significant interest in the development of blockchain and IoT solutions, Celestica has also shown interest in artificial intelligence which could be an absolute game-changer in its current devices

Celestica has a long history in technology, and will surely be a stock to watch as the Fourth Industrial Revolution takes flight.  

Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) is one of the most innovative and well-known companies within the tech sector, but its Windows platform is the most widely used operating system on the planet. First launched in 1985, Windows has shaped what is expected from a personal home computer.

But Microsoft is appealing to investors for more just its Windows platform. Like Intel, Microsoft is diving head first into an entirely new market. With key partnerships utilizing and implementing blockchain and financial technology, the company’s upside could have huge potential as the tech takes off. (NASDAQ: OSTK) According to one analyst, it’s the perfect blockchain play. After patiently developing blockchain tech through its subsidiary TZero, had a big year in 2017: its stock value leapt from $20 to over $80, and its market cap jumped above $1.5 billion, before falling back down a bit.

FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ: FEYE) is one of the most impressive cybersecurity barnstormers out there. It only went public in September 2013, and by December that same year it was spending $1 billion on a major acquisition, Mandiant, which was one of the top data breach and response companies in the space.

This is now a massive and fast-growing company of highly sought-after cyber experts and products, all rolled into a cloud-based platform that is a favorite among key Fortune 500 companies, not to mention Global 2000 companies.

Webroot Global Report: Despite More Training, SMBs Feel Unprepared for Cyberattacks

BROOMFIELD, Colo., June 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Webroot, the Smarter Cybersecurity® company, announced the results of a new global report – “Webroot SMB Cybersecurity Preparedness.” Webroot found that businesses in the U.S., U.K. and Australia are taking cybersecurity seriously – with almost 100 percent of respondents conducting some form of employee cybersecurity training. However, despite these efforts, 79 percent say they aren’t completely ready to manage IT security and protect against threats.

In a study of 600 IT decision makers (ITDMs) at small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs), Webroot found that the attacks organizations believed themselves to be most susceptible to in 2017 are rapidly shifting in 2018, while the estimated cost of a breach is decreasing.

View the Report: Webroot SMB Cybersecurity Preparedness

Key Global Findings:

  • Most Dangerous Threats Evolving: Phishing displaces new forms of malware globally as the No. 1 attack that ITDMs believe their organizations are most susceptible to in 2018.
    • Fear of phishing is up from No. 3 last year, with new forms of malware dropping to No. 6, behind DDoS attacks and mobile attacks.
    • Post WannaCry, ransomware also rose from the fifth most susceptible attack to third globally – and topped the charts to reach No. 1 in the U.K.
    • Five years after Edward Snowden’s story broke, businesses reported to be least susceptible to insider threats in 2018 – only 25 percent globally.
  • Top Threats Vary by Country: U.S. ITDMs think their business will be most susceptible to phishing threats (56 percent), while the U.K. fears ransomware attacks (44 percent) and Australia DNS attacks (52 percent).
    • SMBs in the U.K. are significantly less concerned about DDoS attacks (17 percent) than the U.S. (52 percent) and Australia (49 percent).
    • Australian businesses view insider threats as a bigger concern than in other regions surveyed (32 percent in Australia vs. 25 percent globally).
    • U.S. ITDMs are more concerned about new forms of malware infections (37 percent) than the UK (32 percent) or Australia (34 percent).
  • Training Isn’t Continuous: Although almost 100 percent of businesses train employees on cybersecurity best practices, that figure drops to half or a third when asked about training “continuously,” which is vital for effectiveness. This leads to the next stat, 79 percent can’t say they are “completely ready to manage IT security and protect against threats.”
    • Compared to last year, SMBs feeling “very confident” their business is “completely ready to manage IT security and protect against threats” dropped from 48 percent to 21 percent globally.
    • Businesses in the U.S. (54 percent) are more likely to offer continuous training to employees than those in the U.K. (31 percent) or Australia (32 percent).
    • U.K. businesses (26 percent) are more likely to only conduct security training after a data breach takes place compared to those in the U.S. (9 percent) or Australia (19 percent).
  • The Cost of a Breach Drops: While breaches continue to proliferate, the estimated cost of a breach may be on the decline.
    • ITDMs estimate a cyberattack in which their customer records or critical business data were lost would cost an average of:
      • $527,256 in the U.S. – a 9 percent decrease from 2017.
      • £305,357 in the U.K. – a 59 percent decrease from 2017.
      • AU$994,025 in Australia – a 48 percent decrease from 2017.

Executive Quote:
Charlie Tomeo, Vice President of Worldwide Business Sales, Webroot
“As our study shows, the rise of new attacks is leaving SMBs feeling unprepared. One of the most effective strategies to keep your company safe is with a layered cybersecurity strategy that can secure users and their devices at every stage of an attack, across every possible attack vector. And for many businesses, relying on a managed service provider (MSP) when time and expertise aren’t readily available is a crucial step to strengthen their security efforts.”

Cybersecurity Guidelines for Small to Medium-Sized Businesses:

  • Always Be Educating: With threats continuously evolving, so must employee cybersecurity training. Training during onboarding isn’t enough. Employees need ongoing training to address the latest and most dangerous attacks.
  • Don’t Forget About Mobile. BYOD is now a reality for many companies. And while everyone wants to be connected, unknown devices brought in by employees also bring in unknown risks to the network. Finding a balance between providing employees corporate access and ensuring information security requires device control policies, device-level security and mobile workforce security training.
  • Email from My Boss or My Attacker? Phishing is the top attack vector, with cybercriminals becoming sneakier than ever. Even if the sender looks familiar, be sure to check the senders email address is legitimate and don’t click unknown links in social media, email, or text. Regular phishing attack simulations maximize awareness of different phishing methods and minimize the many consequences.
  • Evaluate Your Risk Profile: Every business has different risk factors. If you don’t have the expertise, an MSP can assess your security posture and work with you to develop a plan for ongoing risk mitigation.
  • Plan for the Worst: Develop a data breach response plan that includes security experts to call and a communications response plan to notify customers, staff, and the public. Make sure you are regularly backing up your data with hard data and offline versions. Remote computer backup could be vulnerable from ransomware and other threats if not ‘air gapped.’ Research by the Better Business Bureau revealed that 50 percent of SMBs would operate at a loss within a month of a total data loss incident.

The Integer Group® Releases Final Installment Of Artificial Intelligence Study Series

DENVER, June 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — The Integer Group®, a commerce agency that lives at the Intersection of Branding and Selling® and a key member of Omnicom Group Inc., has released the fourth and final white paper in a series of research findings surrounding the impact of artificial intelligence on commerce.  Embracing The Machines: AI’s Collision with Commerce is a study of over 3,500 respondents illuminating how shoppers perceive and use AI and to what degree people will allow AI to become part of shopping in the future. The study also draws implications for what brands, retailers and marketers need to know regarding AI’s influence on the commerce landscape.

The Integer Group (PRNewsfoto/The Integer Group)

In the fourth and final installment of the study, “Part 4: The Socioeconomics of AI,” Integer examines the data in light of the varying socioeconomic factors affecting today’s shopping culture. Integer explores whether attitudes toward and adoption of AI technology differ based on socioeconomic factors including household income, education level, and region.

“We’re no longer asking if people will use AI, but rather how it affects their decisions and how much control consumers and shoppers will turn over to AI,” said Craig Elston, Global Chief Strategy Officer for The Integer Group. “When beginning to craft our study, there were more questions than answers regarding AI’s collision with commerce; as we share the final installment of our findings, we can also now reflect on our key findings.”

Part 1: “AI Today” Key Finding – today’s shopper is curious about AI and is starting to scratch the surface of AI’s capabilities, seeing the intelligence as an assistant that can help with simple tasks like playing music or creating a shopping list.

Part 2: “AI Tomorrow” Key Finding – tomorrow’s shoppers are open to allowing AI to make purchase decisions for “chore” transactions including everyday household items. However, they are not ready to relinquish power completely. Instead, they have a desire for AI to enhance its services with a value slant toward finding deals, saving time, or offering more customized suggestions tailored to specific needs.

Part 3: “AI and Retailers” Key Finding – A preferred retailer can affect desires and perceptions of AI. Tech-forward companies like Amazon and Walmart have shoppers that are more open to embracing AI for shopping, while core grocery shoppers are just behind the adoption curve.

The four-part series, Embracing The Machines: AI’s Collision with Commerce, is available for download on Shopper Culture (, The Integer Group’s global discussion about the impact of shopping culture on brand strategy.
