The goal to regain eroded consumer and merchant confidence in the marketplace that has been caused significant losses revenue from stolen credit cards, debit cards, gift cards and identity theft; and help by saving billions of dollars in losses that occur daily in the global markets as a result from these egregious criminal acts. A second visionary goal will be to conveniently and securely complete both domestic and international money transfers globally for money remittance and payroll distribution to individuals' mobile phones with a natural extension of having them be able to also transact business using only their mobile phones. Our company has developed six digital mobile money end-to-end applications which make up the WiGime™ product line placing the company in a uniquely strong position in both domestic and international markets.
WiGime™ has developed and designed a mobile and web-based system to address the aforementioned problems while adhering to the rules and regulations of the current banking industry standards (Know your Customers (KYC) and Anti Money Laundering (AML). This system has been built with consumers and merchants in mind and is both telecom and bank agnostic. Built for the now and the future it can only be used with traditional and future smart phones platforms with data plan capability. As the global market changes the WiGime™ Mobile Application (WMA), has been built for iPhone and Android platforms and the WiGime™’s POS Application (WiGime™ POS) built on the android platform allowing ON-THE-GO Mobile Merchants to accept payments from any WiGime™ Consumer.

Additionally, the paradigm shift this technology will invoke will stimulate interests and vitalize innovation that will open up new opportunities globally.
