Pangea Money Transfer and Philippines-based microfinancial service provider Cebuana Lhuillier have joined forces to create a simple, streamlined mobile remittance application. Long-established as the ultimate money remittance pick-up station, Cebuana Lhuillier is now able to improve customer experiences by owning more of the transfer process and connecting directly with senders in the U.S. The mobile remittance app, Quikz, is designed for Cebuana Lhuillier customers and brings Pangeaā€™s international money-sending solution to an even larger user base.

ā€œWe are excited to work with Cebuana Lhuillier on this groundbreaking service for Filipino customers in the U.S. This partnership expands our mobile remittance technology to even more senders, contributing to our goal of bringing effortless money transfer to those who need it most,ā€ said Nishu Thukral, CEO of Pangea Money Transfer.

ā€œPartnering with Pangea allows us to help improve the lives of our customers and better connect them to their family members overseas,ā€ said Jean Henri Lhuillier, president and CEO of Cebuana Lhuillier. ā€œPangeaā€™s secure and simple money transfer technology supports more financial security and opportunities to Filipinos who want a convenient way to send and receive funds,ā€ Lhuillier added.

Quikz is powered by Pangea Connect, Pangeaā€™s new Remittance-as-a-Service (RaaS) offering. Pangea Connect ties Pangeaā€™s technology to the strength of the Cebuana Lhuillier brand to further Pangeaā€™s mission of financially empowering underserved communities. Cebuana Lhuillier receives Pangeaā€™s expertise in remittance technology, customer service, and regulatory compliance while extending its brand into the U.S. for the first time. The companies bring value to the partnership from their respective areas of strength ā€” Cebuana Lhuillier understands the Filipino customer and has extensive network with close to 2,500 branches in the Philippines, and Pangeaā€™s in-depth fintech and regulatory expertise.

Pangea Connect enables companies like Cebuana Lhuillier to quickly develop their own remittance-sending feature and deliver additional value to customers worldwide, all powered by Pangeaā€™s pioneeringĀ Remittance-as-a-ServiceĀ (RaaS) platform. Rather than spending years building an app and acquiring licenses, Cebuana Lhuillier leverages Pangeaā€™s existing infrastructure within Quikz. Cebuana Lhuillier was able to launch the service in just 4 weeks, a testament to Pangeaā€™s cutting edge platform.

As Quikz continues to gain momentum, Pangea and Cebuana Lhuillier will make adjustments to further tailor the app to the needs and preferences of users worldwide. Pangea plans to kick off more brand partnerships, expanding their RaaS offering to companies in other territories around the globe.

The Quikz mobile app is available on theĀ Apple AppĀ andĀ Google PlayĀ store.
