MoneyGram International Inc has entered a partnership with FinTech firm Brightwell that helps global workers get paid as well as send and spend money safely and easily worldwide.
The partnership will enable cruise crew members to digitally send their money home using MoneyGram within the Brightwell app. Thereby empowering crews to support their friends and family in over 200 countries and territories worldwide, according to a statement.
The MoneyGram-Brightwell partnership offers crew members an easy and cost-effective way to send money home directly from their mobile devices while at sea and eliminates the need to wait until arriving at port to complete a money transfer.
“We’re excited to partner with Brightwell and deliver a convenient, digitally-enabled experience that will save crew members valuable time and money while also providing more options for those receiving the funds,” Alex Holmes, chairman, and CEO of MoneyGram said.
“We continue to execute our digital transformation through new partnerships and service offerings that address the needs of our customers and provide fast and reliable options no matter where or when they need to send money,” Alex added.
Brightwell is an Atlanta-based financial technology (FinTech) company that provides financial services including cross-border remittance, P2P transfers, and digital bank accounts, to global workers from more than 140 countries. Its mobile-first platform and financial tools simplify personal finances for communities that are underserved.
