Steve’s breakdown: Here’s a perfect example of the type of lead we serve up that no one else ever does. Cheers!

DALLAS, TX: Qtel and MoneyGram have announced a new partnership to make MoneyGram money transfer available through Qtel Mobile Money, a service which enables customers to transfer money to almost every country in the world using a mobile phone.

Under the new partnership, Qtel Mobile Money customers are able to send money to 284,000 local agents in 196 countries in Europe, the Americas and Asia including India, Pakistan, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and the Philippines.

Mobile Money customers do not need to have a bank account to use the service, thus offering “under-banked” customers in Qatar a secure, effective service to send money home without worry.

Waleed Al Sayed, Chief Operating Officer, Qtel Qatar, said. “This partnership is a critically-important step that reinforces and demonstrates Qtel’s commitment to service and innovation.  With a growing number of foreign workers working on critical projects in Qatar, there is an increasing need for people to be able to transfer money safely and conveniently back home at any time and from anywhere. The service provides security, convenience and global reach, and extends these benefits to people who do not have a bank account.”

“Customers want flexible, convenient and reliable ways to send money,” said Juan Agualimpia, EVP and chief marketing officer, MoneyGram. “Adding MoneyGram International money transfers to Qtel’s mobile money service gives customers the option to transfer to any MoneyGram location worldwide.”

Qtel launched Mobile Money in 2011 and has since developed a simple registration process where customers dial *140# on their mobiles and follow straight-forward on-screen instructions.  To complete the process a Qatar ID is required. Once registered, customers can deposit money into their account using any of the 200 Qtel Self-Service Machines available all over Qatar. Anyone over the age of 18 that has a Qatar ID can register for Qtel Mobile Money.
