Scott Moeller - Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
In September 1999, Scott founded MShift with the vision of extending the reach and ubiquity of the desktop-based Internet to the mobile world. Scott anticipated that enabling secure and high value transactions would be a necessity for growth and utilization of the mobile Internet. As such, MShift’s sharpened its focus on financial transactions and the banking industry. In 2001, MShift deployed the very first mobile banking application in the United States. Since then, MShift has developed, hosted and deployed mobile banking applications for a wide scope of financial institutions ranging from local credit unions and community banks to 2 of the top 5 largest financial institutions in the United States with millions of high value financial transactions securely supported by MShift technology.
Recently, Scott has been key in the development and deployment of MShift’s AnyWhereMobile payment rail, an innovative payment rail for mobile and online transactions patented by MShift. AnyWhereMobile enables a real-time guarantee of funds, for debit, credit and P2P payments. MShift’s patented method effectively eliminates chargebacks, and dramatically reduces the cost of transactions for merchants, leading AnyWhereMobile to be the most cost effective method for mobile and online payments. At the same time, AnyWhereMobile is able to provide financial institutions with equivalent net revenue to current plastic card interchange, through the effective cost reduction of delivering mobile and online payments through MShift’s technology.
Scott’s continuing vision for MShift and the AnyWhereMobile payment rail is to provide a secure transaction environment for an always evolving and ever-connected world.
