UBA leads e-Banking Innovation with Mobile POS (mPOS)

 United Bank for Africa (UBA) Plc
has again proven its leadership position in e-Banking with the introduction of
mobile Point of Sale (mPOS) terminals. UBA has gone live with this initiative
in partnership with mPOS partners across Africa.
A mobile POS terminal is about
the size of Blackberry Curve phone, but works just like the traditional POS
currently used in many stores and cash collecting business outlets. mPOS
terminals are portable, low cost and extremely secure.
Many stores and cash collecting
outlets that have already operated the new UBA mPOS have discovered it to be a
good strategy to increase sales and expand their customer base. Existing large
retailers are also adopting Mobile POS solutions and integrating them into
their current point-of-sale environment to enhance the retail and payment
mPOS allows even the smallest
business to be able to easily track and analyze sales and trends in their
business as all sales are automatically and instantly captured on the
retailer’s system thereby improving accountability and transparency in business
It is also suitable for firms and
companies that have agents on the field collecting cash on their behalf as an
option to the less secure pay on delivery system.
According to Kennedy Uzoka, UBA’s
DMD & CEO Africa, “mPOS is just one of our many e-banking innovations. We
have driven other initiatives such as the acceptance of international cards on
our POS terminals. Our POS terminals are also enabled for Dynamic Currency
Conversion (DCC), which means customers and non-customers using foreign payment
cards on our POS can see their transaction value in the currency of their card or home country; this aids transaction tracking and
personal account reconciliation.”
It will be recalled that UBA late
last year introduced bill payments such as airtime top up, utility bills
payment and Cable TV subscription on its POS terminals in select locations.
With a customer base in excess of
seven million, UBA has invested heavily in building a robust and secure
e-Banking platform that supports its operations globally through strategic
partnerships with various local and international organizations.
The UBA Group is a highly diversified financial services
provider, with business offices in New York, Paris and a subsidiary in London.
A leading player on the African continent, UBA has significant market share and
operations in 19 different African countries.

  2. Looks like banks were waiting for an opportunity of this sort to come by. The good part is that even state run banks in developing economies, with their cobwebbed style of functioning are enticed to pull this rabbit out of their hats. What are we talking about? It's Mobile banking!소액결제현금화
