Mobile Money Practice

Consult Hyperion has been active in mobile money since the technology's earliest days, when it was engaged by Vodafone to assist in the development of the M-PESA service in 2004.  Since then, Consult Hyperion has been deeply involved in the extensive developments in the sector, as mobile money became a significant business in 2007 with the launch of M-PESA in Kenya.  The mobile money industry has mushroomed since then and Consult Hyperion has worked on some of the most significant of the hundreds of similar services already launched across the globe and still in development.

Our Mobile Money Practice (MMP) is able to offer the expertise of some of the most experienced people in the sector, several of whom worked on the initial pilot and launch of M-PESA in Kenya and have since gone on to support many other new mobile money services in Africa and Asia.  We have also worked on European mobile financial services, with their differing technical and commercial requirements.  Our team has a deep understanding and extensive experience of all aspects of developing, launching and operating mobile money services around the world working with mobile operators, banks, NGOs, donors, and a variety of third parties.

This unparalleled mobile money experience is supported by Consult Hyperion's detailed knowledge of conventional payments and new, disruptive technologies.  If expertise is needed for example in cards (contact or contactless), terminals, biometrics, NFC, or a range of other payment specialities, we can call upon our Consult Hyperion colleagues' experience and abilities to support the Mobile Money Practice.
