  • The growth in mobile money

    As the telecommunications sector turns to a new growth agenda, mobile money services are becoming more important than ever.

    The acceleration of mobile remittance services alongside new mobile payments highlights the opportunities for the mobile phone to redefine the movement of money by:

    • Lowering costs
    • Increasing convenience
    • Reducing fraud

    Interestingly, many of the most successful services worldwide have originated in developed Asia — where mobile contactless services are well established — alongside money transfer services in emerging markets such as the Philippines and Kenya.

    However, opportunities have yet to be uncovered in many developed markets, where financial inclusion is higher and where there is a greater diversity of existing payments channels.

    Ultimately, flexibility — in terms of policy approach, customer proposition and stakeholder management — should be top of mind for all players as the handset catalyses a more efficient customer payments experience, and one that brings with it greater advantages in terms of information richness and location sensitivity.

    Discover how we can help you lay the groundwork for tomorrow’s mobile money solutions.

  • Managing risks and seizing the opportunities

    Despite — or, in some cases, because of — the continuing uncertainty and volatility in the global economy, there are major opportunities for telecom operators. Each company’s ability to identify and seize these opportunities depends critically on its ability to understand and manage risk. Unless your growth strategy has a solid underpinning of risk management, it will never be truly sustainable.

    There are new opportunities emerging, provided companies are willing to take those risks and make the bold strategic choices that are required.
