Secure Mcommerce

After successfully deploying Mcommerce availabilities in 15 different OpCos during the last years, Prodo has again been contracted to deliver Mcommerce abilities to subscriber SIM cards in various West and Central African markets. The update has consisted on updating (through a Prodo made Java Applet) Mobile commerce functionality on different profile Java Cards as well as some legacy SIM cards. The advantages of deploying a STK solution in these markets is clear. In question of weeks, the majority of subscribers have been updated with a commerce application that allows them to make/receive payments and store money with the highest level of security that GSM has to offer.


For the first Operator targeted, campaigns were launched on several different SIM vendor cards. Although the applet size was moderately big (almost 70 SMSes), campaign results were in the high 90%.
