Pan-African Mobile Banking Solution
Mobile bank featuring cross-border payments and money transfers.
Today, Africa and the Middle East remain the region with around 50% of the unbanked population. Basic financial operations such as transfers, currency exchange, bill payments remain cumbersome or impossible for people living there and have limited to no access to centralized banking services.
However, with the fast-growing number of mobile users and vast internet coverage, digital banking is becoming a powerful solution for the problem. It can provide people that were traditionally excluded from the financial ecosystem with a cost-effective and convenient solution for managing their finance.
The client is set to become the dominant pan-African solution for affordable cross-border remittances and bill payment by serving a much larger informal segment of the population.
Thus, the company was looking for a technology partner to build a comprehensive digital banking product for african people to enable cross-currency operations, payments, transfers and other financial services within Africa and beyond its boundaries. To fulfill such a mission it was critical to find a technology provider that had hands-on experience in tackling the high-level security standards in digital finance. Furthermore, in order to attract more customers, the usability and great user experience of the solution was highly required.
The client partnered with Velmie to build the desired banking solution on our core banking platform including a web interface for both admins and customers and a mobile app. Being a white-label solution, the platform’s functionality and appearance was tailored for the specific client’s requirements within just 3 months.
The architecture meets all international security standards and is PCI DSS compliant which was further certified by the client. On top of that, according to the specific requests, we built custom integrations with service providers such as MPesa, Flutterwave, Payfast, Africastalking and others. The software is ultimate enough to become a one-stop solution for various users. It supports multiple payment channels including mobile money and all major international card networks – Visa, MasterCard, Visa Virtual Card, etc.
