Cambodia’s Acleda Bank has launched mobile financial services powered by M-Com’s flagship product, BankAnywhere.
“Acleda has now taken a solid market leadership position. We now offer the most comprehensive and compelling mobile financial services in Cambodia,” said In Channy, president and chief executive officer (CEO) of the bank. “We have effectively leapfrogged the internet channel and gone straight to mobile.”
The deployed services enable Acleda customers to make person-to-person payments, pre-paid top up, utility bill payments and manage their finances in both Khmer and English scripts. These services are now available through text messaging, mobile browser and downloadable application interfaces and support multiple currencies and language scripts as required by Acleda’s customers.
M-Com’s BankAnywhere solution has been built leveraging the Microsoft.NET Framework 3.5 using Visual Studio 2008. Leveraging Windows Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008, Acleda has deployed the product within its secure data centre in Phnom Penh and integrated to its Temenos T24 core banking system.
