Local Hi-Tech, CheckSavvy Goes Live With Project On Indiegogo

Hilo, Hawai`i, August 12, 2012. Local startup CheckSavvy launched a project on at hoping to raise $25,000 to launch their unique secure IVR and SMS services. "With Interactive Voice Response, we can ensure delivery of payment alerts," stated Rudo, the company's founder and Interim CEO.

A video on the site provides an overview of their QR code-based system for the payment card, called the Aloha One Card, the first of its kind. "We also feature one that works entirely over the mobile phone, no card needed," Rudo stated. "Merchants love this, we have 5 to 10 merchants signing up everyday  online and we haven't ramped up marketing yet," he continued.

When asked how the funds would be spent, Rudo replied, "The funds will allow us to acquire and configure the secure-dedicated servers, one for Interactive Voice Response (IVR) and the other for secure text messaging (SMS)." In addition, Rudo explained that they run their servers in tandem with multiple cross checks for security. "No card numbers are stored on our system, and we use IVR to approve transactions with SMS handling the discounts. Clever little system," Rudo added.

CheckSavvy, Inc. is a Hawaii-based hi-tech startup specializing in mobile payment security & discounts. "We make mobile payments safer, convenient and fun."
