Total Tel International plans e-commerce expansion using IBM Cloud

Electronic wallet services are to be developed in the Cloud by Australian software vendor

Australian software company, Total Tel International (TTI), is planning to expand its electronic wallet services following the deployment of IBM’s infrastructure as a service (IaaS) SmartCloud enterprise.

The e-wallet services provided by TTI mean that customers can make secure e-commerce transactions using a pay-as-you-go subscription model. It also syncs with TTI’s existing offerings to provide mobile banking options such as top-up services.

TTI chief executive, Peter Cook, said in a statement that there had been a long term plan to develop the e-wallets system into a commercial offering.

“After talking to IBM we realised that a Cloud based implementation would address many of the issues surrounding cost-effectiveness and scalability, especially with deployments overseas, which may have otherwise confined e-wallets to the drawing board,” he said.

“We can now offer a product that means our customers pay a nominal fee per month rather than having to make a big investment up front before they even get started.”

According to Cook, the adoption of a public Cloud-based model also means it can develop software demonstrations, proof of concepts, and technical systems deployment.
