Startup Transcel pushing to bring Mobile money closer to reality in Jamaica

transcelllogoMOBILE NEWS – Local mobile money facilitator, Transcel Limited has moved closer to bringing its service to the Jamaican market. The company recently closed a successful round of investment, securing capital to implement its service launch in Jamaica and to expand to other Caribbean markets.
