mHITs FINALIST in Mobile Marketing and Advertising Awards 2008
mHITs (pronounced Em-HITS) is a finalist in two categories of the Australian Mobile Marketing & Advertising Awards 2008. The two categories are m-commerce and B2B or Enterprise Category.
“This is the 4th consecutive year that mHITs has been nominated as a finalist in the MMA Awards” said managing director Mr Harold Dimpel. ““mHITs fills a much-needed gap in the marketplace for making small payments including retail point of sale payments and uses simple SMS technology to do so. The mHITs payment service offers businesses (merchants) a single account where payments can be collected by mobile, internet and Point Of Sale transactions" he continues.
The winner of the category will be announced at the awards ceremony to be held in Sydney on 19 September 2008.

mHITs users can pay each other, purchase goods and services from mHITs merchants, and make BPAY payments
