MPULSE

Our Story

Mpulse is Luxembourg’s prime telecoms messaging, routing and micro-payments gateway since 2006.

Mpulse was established as a spin-off of Nvision, a Luxembourg-based web agency, focusing both on messaging and micropayment services, as well as helping companies to develop, deliver, and bill for mobile content, messaging, and applications. Today, Mpulse handles over 90% of Premium SMS payments and high-end routing in Luxembourg. Mpulse’s current solutions combine payment and messaging products with state-of-the-art interfaces, technical applications and expert-services.

Mpulse has strong relations with mobile operators, mobile content and service providers both in Luxembourg and neighbouring countries France, Belgium and Germany.

In 2010, the company founders launched a R&D project with the help of the Luxembourg Government, aiming at creating a universal mobile payments platform. This development was brought into the Digicash project that became Luxembourg’s bank-centric mobile payment product and acceptance network. This project was spun off Mpulse in 2012 to establish a new company named Digicash Payments SA, that was granted a full EU payment institution licence the same year by the Luxembourg Minister of Finance.

Digicash is used by more than 20% of the Luxembourg population on a monthly basis, mostly to pay their bills and to trigger quick and easy person-to-person payments by mobile phone. Digicash became the Luxembourg banks’ mobile payment product, over 20% of the population uses the App.

In June 2015, Mpulse France was acquired by Dimoco, one of the leading European carrier-billing specialists in order to allow the company to reinforce its presence on the French market. The founders made their first major exit when Digicash was acquired by Payconiq in August 2017 for marketing and sales activities. The technical platform is operated by Finologee, Mpulse’s and Digicash’s founders new venture, Finologee, established in August 2017.
