SAFARICOM MPESA VERSION 2 TO BE SHOWCASED TOMORROW

Safaricom's MPESA G2 or the second generation of mobile money service MPESA will be showcased to media tomorrow the company has indicated.

The new version which has been a long time coming is expected to host the wildly successful Mpesa on locally hosted servers.

The current MPESA platform, G1, has been sitting in Rackspace servers in Germany and the UK.

The new MPESA platform is expected to be faster and to experience fewer outages. It will be able to process 600 transactions per second compared to 300 transactions per second currently.

It should also offer a few more advantages like when reversing a transaction, the customer will not be charged the amount that had been deducted such as sending charges and will receive their money intact.

It is also expected to have a better graphical user interface with the possibility of making use of logos.

MPESA is the most the successful money product in the world since its introduction in 2007.


With 19 million registered users, 12.7m of whom are active, M-PESA has evolved from a mere SMS money transfer tool to perhaps the world’s leading and first significant mobile money product.
The numbers are impressive.
Over six million transactions are carried out over the service daily, more than Western Union does globally, and it has an 80,000 strong agent network - more than any bank in Kenya can ever dream of.
