Systems interoperability is one of the ways the end-user gains from adopting new technology, if its present the user can have freedom of choice and make informed decisions as to the best service that suits them. Previously we have had announcements of M-pesa and Airtel Money service accessible via the Pesapoint ATMS.
Mobikash is the newest entrant in this fray, and users are now able to withdraw from any Pesapoint ATM countrywide. This is an awesome move and it will ensure that one is not limited to locations where there are Mobikash agents to utilise the service that is mobile phone based. As you would notice, this has made the very necessary move of Mobikash into a 24 hour service. PesaPoint has over 100 ATMs in the country, hence widening the reach of the Mobikash service.
Question I beg to discuss, Are we headed to a cashless, cardless society run by mobile money?
