On April 23rd, Software Groups COO met and presented to Bill Gates as part of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation work on Digital Financial Services for the Poor. The presentation involved a hands on demo to interact with an m-wallet platform that had been designed to demonstrate interoperability and improved usability. Gates team used the system to open an m-wallet account, receive funds from a G2P program, transfer funds to an individual and purchase goods from a merchant. The demonstration was followed by a lively discussion on details of implementing such a platform. Software Group will continue its work with the Foundation to enhance the platform as a means of stimulating discussion in the market.
