Apart from the core banking functionality, Zhen Systems has pioneered the use of new technology in microfinance, and as such is integrated with multiple mobile money transfer services, includes an Messaging module for the sending of automated payment reminders and credit scoring to improve lending decisions. Zhen Systems therefore helps financial organisations to leverage the latest technology sweeping across Africa, but at a fraction of the cost associated with traditional banking systems.
Following the successes of M-PESA, MTN Mobile Money, Airtel Money and the many other mobile money transfer systems being used across Africa, we believe in the huge potential in linking mobile and microfinance. Indeed, the original idea behind M-PESA was to make it easier for microfinance clients to make loan repayments. By processing loans, savings and repayments over mobile money transfer systems, MFIs can improve their efficiency, reduce the errors and wasted time associated with manual cash handling, and lower the likelihood of fraud. The Zhen System has therefore been built to make it as easy as possible for you to integrate with mobile money. We are already integrated with M-PESA (Kenya & Tanzania) and Airtel Money.
