Industry Champion



An instance that Bankim wants to quote explaining his group’s abilities is that of a mobile money platform provider they worked with in a West African country. The aim was to set up an all-inclusive digital ecosystem for their customers. The company was using a voucherbased wallet and was looking to switch to a centralized e-wallet generation, disbursement and withdrawal system connected to the bank’s escrow account. Bankai’s digital financial solution MobiFin was successfully deployed with separate wallets setup for customer, agent, merchant and enterprise with direct P2P transfer facility. The efforts demonstrated almost instant results and augmented the number of wallets the company provides by straight 25% only in a couple of months.



For the days to come, Bankai Group is focused on enhancing their existing range of solutions and constantly adding value to them through enhanced features and richer interface.“We also have some more technologies in pipeline and are looking to diversify our portfolio.
