Active testing for Mobile Money end-to-end interoperability

Mobile Money (MoMo), also known as e-Money, continues to evolve at a rampant pace. Mobileum’s Mobile Money Active Testing ensures mobile payment solutions offer a high degree of reliability between all systems involved in enabling these transactions, leading ultimately to consumer trust in the financial system. It provides an end-to-end view of service quality and availability, warranting the best end-user experience and governance compliance.

Our solution tests and monitors MoMo services across apps, SIM Toolkit, and USSD. As part of our expertise and capabilities, our mobile money testing scenarios work around three pillars:
  • Availability & performance
  • Mobile Money app reliability
  • Business partner interaction

Ensure availability and performance for your MoMo app

Operators and service providers must proactively monitor 24/7 the availability and performance of MoMo solutions, as they are essential for financial services and a key requirement to comply with regulations even before their release.

Mobileum provides a robust and flexible platform to create Mobile Money tests related to service availability and the customer journey during the usage of the application. Whether your customer base uses USSD or a Mobile Money app, our test methodology and library of testing scenarios have been meticulously designed to bring the insights focused on understanding the engagement with subscribers and the businesses’ performance, while offering a frictionless end-to-end experience.

The key points of improving the QoS/QoE are the following:
  • Network availability
  • Network accessibility
  • Service accessibility
  • Service integrity
  • Service retainability
  • Service delivery on time

QoS and QoE tests with digital financial services standard

Testing Digital Financial Services (DFS), like field quality assessment in general, not only require well-defined KPIs but also careful design of testing procedures. In particular, data quality assurance is essential to ensure the validity of results and optimum use of resources.

Mobileum’s Mobile Money active testing methodology covers the entire range of manual and automated tests to provide best-practice information for implementers of testing campaigns. Our solution is compliant with the Telecommunication Standardization Sector’s (ITU-T) recommended KPIs for Mobile Money active testing. These KPIs follow international standards for MoMo platforms and increase financial inclusion development worldwide.

Our use cases cover the following scenarios:
  • Accurate money transfer through SIM application toolkit, app, USSD and SMS
  • Guarantee that money is neither lost nor duplicated
  • Guarantee the correct transaction fee

Guarantee business partner interaction and interoperability

The seamless integration of third parties with mobile money platforms is a key catalyst to achieving wider access to critical products by the underserved. In broad terms, interoperability is the interconnection of mobile money services with external parties, with the aim to create value for both customers and commercial players.

With Mobileum’s MoMo active testing solution, you can assess your business opportunity by testing the services that fall within and adjacent to the mobile money category. This assessment is key as the amount of services rapidly expands. While pure mobile money networks connect with other, money transfer networks and boundaries blur between payments. Specifically, for business’ partner interaction, Mobileum provides a library of testing scenarios that cover the following areas:
  • Successful transactions between platforms and networks
  • Seamless third-party integration and interaction

Mobile Money risk management
Concerns have arisen that mobile money services can be used for money laundering and terrorist financing. RAID for Mobile Money has been designed to assure a high level of Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC) monitoring capabilities to reduce the inherent risks of AML.
MoMo Agent Fraud & Assurance
The majority of mobile money fraud incidents happen at agents where cash and e-money intersect. Monitor the agent’s network to avoid fraudulent activities.
One of the biggest challenges of detecting, investigating, and preventing employee fraud is the fact that there are so many types of fraud and theft that require different methods for discovery.

Continuous monitoring of the Mobile Money ecosystem for end-to-end risk management

The mobile money ecosystem continues to evolve in various markets, driven by competition and consumer demand. Increasing sophistication along with multiple digital financial services such as savings and credits, registrations, utility payments, cross-border payments, and international money transfers requires continuous monitoring for ensuring comprehensive revenue assurance and fraud management coverage. In their quest for business sustainability and compliance, CSPs need to implement appropriate integrated testing and continuous monitoring controls that can strike an appropriate balance between risk management, profitability, and optimal customer experience.
