Fundamo, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Visa Inc. is widely regarded as the world’s leading provider of Mobile Financial Services platforms, with more than 55 active deployments, powering around a quarter of the emerging market mobile money projects (GSMA).
Fundamo approached Methys to build an Android application to facilitate mobile wallet based transactions on mobile devices.
The application was designed to offer agents primary facilities such as registration, Withdraw / Deposit Funds, Money Transfer, Airtime Sales, Bill Payment and My Account. Some of the challenges faced in this project were integration with the complex Fundamo systems and keeping data transfer sizes to a minimum. Methys created a dynamic menu system to also help drive app features for selected brands.
The project has been a success and the experience of working with one of the biggest companies in South Africa has been memorable.
Currently Methys is working with Fundamo to productise their solution.
The following key services were completed to deliver this project.
Methys utilise wireframing tools to develop a visual skeleton of the application to aid in the functional analysis process. These wireframes highlight common UI & UX elements, and describes user interaction and navigational flow within the project.
Design mock-ups of key application / website components are created. The final designs are presented as static images, providing a representation of the final look and feel of the project to the client before development commences.
The application was built natively for Android. The solution also offers a dynamic CMS built on Java.
Quality assurance takes place by a dedicated tester using the test cases defined during the analysis process. These test cases will be used in the final testing and QA phases.
