BENEFITS TO SACCOS

1. Reduce Operating Costs

Eliminate the need for costly call centers and customer service help desks by going mobile. Using a mobile platform such as SMS text messaging for simple and repetitive tasks such as reminders about payments due or balance requests can reduce the burden on IT and personnel resources. Using secure and integrated messaging platforms means that you can reduce the costs and errors associated with paper-based payments.

2. Reduce Risk for your institution

SMS mobile banking is cost-effective which lowers the financial risk involved in rolling out new banking initiatives. It is immediate and effective and with two-way messaging enabled, campaigns can be monitored in real-time affording the opportunity to change strategy if need be. Lanstar Technologies’ SMS mobile banking (Xtreme-Connect) solution can be integrated into existing infrastructure or externally managed so no additional personnel are needed.

SMS mobile banking reduces the potential for fraud immediately as fraud and account transaction notifications are sent in real-time empowering customers to take action immediately. Give customers peace of mind around the accuracy and security of their financial transactions through SMS authentication PIN codes and transaction text notifications.

3. Generate Additional Revenue

Use premium-rated SMS to charge for banking transactions and create an additional revenue stream for your financial institution. Commissions and service fees on mobile payments and transfers are another potential income stream. Customers can also purchase goods and services via a mobile banking platform and the mobile number database can be used for cross-selling purposes - particularly time and event related options. This could include insurance packages, discounted holiday packages and premium banking services. Prepaid airtime, electricity vouchers, coupons etc can all be purchased via mobile phone.

4. Customer Retention and Acquisition Campaigns

Offering existing customers an additional, secure, easy to use banking channel is sure to improve the loyalty or 'stickiness' of customers to your brand. It can also act as an attraction point to new customers looking for ease of access and innovative services. There are many practical ways of using SMS text messaging to increase the level of service you offer customers:

Use SMS transaction and fraud alerts to guarantee their level of banking security. Xtreme-Connect allows customers to receive critical information and services via SMS messages. Xtreme-Connect allows your customers to communicate with you via SMS text message and set-up an 'intelligent customer callback service' that negates the need for customers to wait in frustrating phone queues. Run SMS marketing campaigns to attract new customers to your institution; because these campaign results are available immediately, the return on investment is measurable. It allows customers the flexibility and peace of mind to access their bank accounts on the go, receive their balance notifications and perform banking functions. A simple SMS service offering 'point of sale' SMS receipts contributes to customers feeling assured that their money transactions are accurate and secure. Mobile to mobile fund transfers are a very convenient way for customers to make payments.

Just by implementing SMS mobile banking you will effectively enhance the value and reach of your brand and build consumer confidence by offering them customer-centric service. SMS mobile banking becomes a unique tool for not only radically improving customer service but also to generate additional revenue and aid in the prevention of fraud.

WEB INTERFACE

In today’s changing environment, Sacco organisations globally are faced with conflicting challenges; to reduce costs while offering improved Sacco services to member's that expect better and better services. Most Sacco organisations operate using either manual paper based processed or a mix of different technologies and systems that have been developed over a long period of time. Sacco’s therefore need to be able to transform the way they deliver and manage Sacco services by providing innovative solutions based on modern, intuitive, integrated and internet enabled technologies such as, through wireless, mobile, internet or local area connections using the most appropriate access device ( PC, laptop, Tablet PC, PDA, phone). Any solution offered need to exploit the opportunities offered by the latest technological advances to fulfil the urgent needs of Sacco organisations. Our Web interface employs a robust strategy as outlined in the diagram.

OFF-SITE BACKUP SERVICE

Offsite backup, which is also known as remote backup, is the process of backing up important computer data and files to a server or other storage device located in a separate physical location. In our quest to address risk management, we discovered the need to house clients’ data offsite in effort to minimize/eliminate data loss as result of fire, theft, etc.

POINT OF SALE

The project is to enable connectivity between Back end Sacco software and the value added products facilitated by various financial technology providers. - The POS,SMS & Extreme Connect Banking module has been fully developed and certified. - The project enables a Sacco that is running a computerized back end system to have its members be able to withdraw and deposit from there FOSA accounts through Mpesa, Airtel, YU, etc product. - It also enables members to perform queries through SMS and to receive notices through system activated SMS alerts.
