New Payment Synergies for Mobile Operators

The Future of Payments in MNO workshop focuses on exploring synergetic opportunities to revenue growth and client acquisition/attrition improvement. Since MNOs are becoming increasingly crucial to people’s ability to make payments, we need to adapt to make the most of this growing sector of the digital economy.

Joining us will be: the Central Bank of Russia on the topic openbanking and biometrics; Visa to speak about tokenisation; and MNO fintechs on new use cases and potential synergies.

Module 1 evaluates where we are now, and what tools the MNOs are using. Do consumers really value combined card and mobile bundles? What is driving (or indeed inhibiting) growth in the market, and therefore revenue? What can we do to drive this further, what tools do we have at our disposal?

Module 2 covers the Era of Digitalisation. From tokenisation, to APIs, biometrics, and openbanking, we want to know what the hybrid players of tomorrow have got up their sleeves. Here, we discuss the gaps in the market that will undoubtedly be filled with digitalised payment solutions and the problems they could subsequently face. Drawing upon the European experience, we apply these market trends to the Russian market and explore how digitalised banking may evolve.

Module 3 give us all a chance to prototype a product and project its journey in the market. By exploring a product’s development and how it interacts with its potential users, we gain meaningful insight into how the market has grown thus far and where it could be headed.
