Facilitating conditions and perceived ease of use
Facilitating Conditions and Perceived Ease of Use Service Uptake

  • The quality of MM services is dependent on amongst others the quality of mobile services and the agent-specific attributes [e.g. liquidity of agents, MM service-mix provided, security]. We delve into this on slide 14.

  • Further research should investigate the rationale for consumers subscribing to all MM providers; risk exposure associated with this;


Operator consumer dialogue on quality of service
Operator-Consumer Dialogue on Quality of Service Service Uptake

  • Accessibility to M.M services

  • Network coverage (no. of branches)

  • Liquidity availability for clients at all times

  • Possibility of inter-network transactions at reduced cost

  • Security of clients’ money ensured by providers

  • Perceived Ease of Use of M.M services (flexibility & convenience)

  • Perceived Usefulness of M.M services (reduced time costs)


Reflections on the research process
Reflections on the Research Process Service Uptake

What has Worked/Successes

  • Secondary data sources (from Bank of Uganda);

  • Questionnaire;

  • Focused-Group Discussions (operator-consumer dialogue);

    Pitfalls

  • Tariff plans not easily comparable across providers;

  • Service uptake information from Bank of Uganda is too aggregated and providers cannot easily release it;

    Next Steps

  • Complete remaining research procedures;

  • Prepare a manuscript for submission to a journal

New questions that the research to date has posed
New Questions that the Research to date has Posed Service Uptake

  • Who is the regulator of mobile money services? Providers; The Central Bank, Uganda Communications Commission?

  • Who set the tariff plans being implemented by agents?

  • If a client sends money and it does not get received where does one seek redress? BOU, UCC, National Information Technology Authority – Uganda (NITA-U) or providers?

  • The tariff plans differ depending upon the provider. What are the implications of this?
