MONITISE PLC (OTCMKTS:MONIF) has been on a slow steady rise in recent weeks since trading as low as $0.027. MONIF has been relatively dormant since the run up it made earlier this year after the Company said it was in early talks to sell its marketing content business, Markco Media.
MONIF as the ex-darling of small caps that looked destined for bigger things with large cap Companies such as IBM, Telefonica, MasterCard and Santander all invested significantly in the Company. MONIF exploded over $1 at the time but collapsed after the Company missed revenue projections significantly.

President of MONIF Mike Dreyer said “Thanks to mobile, the way that consumers are interacting with their financial institutions has transformed from just a few years ago. The level of engagement through mobile is staggering – users of Monitise-based mobile banking services often log in daily. Part of the reason this is so high comes down to trust, and we are looking forward to providing MoneyPass cardholders with greater access to mobile banking services on a platform they can rely on.”
According to a recent article MONIF plans to launch a new platform in April; the new approach Monitise is offering will make it easier for financial institutions, payment companies, mobile operators, retailers and network partners to connect to an increasingly mobile population. Monitise’s Central Platform provides the services and functionality required to manage and grow the new ecosystem.
While system integration capabilities continue to be provided by the Monitise Enterprise and Vantage platforms, each including a standard API interface to the Monitise Central Platform, customers can opt to use their own technology to connect directly to Monitise. As part of the Group’s evolving capabilities, content and service providers, including new industry schemes, can also connect directly to the published Open APIs of the central platform.
