IBM – Driving Commerce in Emerging Markets through Mobile Payment services

M-Pesa is the leading international brand in mobile payment services. Its success in Kenya and other African countries has made it the standard method of carrying out many financial transactions – both business and personal.

The incredible popularity of M-Pesa meant that IBM (who develop and support the application software for Vodafone) needed a dedicated team to carry out the specialist design and support tasks for what is now a global mobile payment service.

T-exec delivers a consulting service to IBM that ensures M-Pesa continues to delight its customers – now spread across many countries – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our team guides and mentors IBM’s offshore resources to ensure that new releases are designed and implemented successfully and that the system always has the capacity required to handle the rapidly-increasing traffic levels.

As a result, many of the citizens of these emerging nations are now able to transfer money quickly and securely, even though they may be many miles away from the nearest bank.
