Total-e™ as Mobile Financial Services Platform and Mobile Banking Solutions
MTS' Total-e™ can also be implemented as a complete Convergence Pre-paid/Post-paid/Hybrid, P2P/P2B/B2P/B2B/M2M fully featured Mobile Financial Services platform (MFS) designed to address the challenges of delivering any financial service, in any business model, sold and maintained through any channel and in any markets. This flexible platform uses object-oriented SO technology and plug-and-play architecture to allow Mobile Banking solutions and services over innovative platform.
Total-e™ Architecture Concept
The Total-e™ MFS platform utilizes state of the art technologies and superior design to streamline how a mobile finance service provider settles with its customers, revenue share partners, banks and other entities, enabling the administration and charging of Any Service Any Time™, and manage its operations effectively in a competitive business environment.
Total-e™ core strengths emerge from its unique architectural concepts of business rules based design and implementation. This allows any service provider and network operator to implement new services and business rules in a fast and streamlined manner. In any time after the project completion, the system can be easily expanded and requirements and services can be defined and added according to the need, based on the available business plugs and services library.
Total-e™ architecture is a modular structure allowing integration amongst implemented modules, as well as the addition of new modules. The infrastructure consists of a robust and flexible platform, utilizing a plug and play concept. Through the use of a "pictorial matrix" (shown below), different services can be added by means of "service plugs" which allow for an unlimited expansion of features, services, and connections (via APIs) to other (external) applications
Total-e™ platform for Mobile Financial Services
Total-e™ is an advanced, cost effective, Mobile Financial Services platform that efficiently handles mobile based financial transactions. Total-e™ offers any Mobile Network Operator (MNO) or Financial Services Provider (FSP) the opportunity to seamlessly extend and adapt their operations to support any type of mobile based financial service in any market. This is achieved easily, quickly and cost effectively, regardless of their location and localization requirements.
Using the Total-e™ full end to end unified platform, MNOs or FSPs are able to extend their existing platform to support multiple Mobile Financial Services offerings and service providers from a single multi-tenant hosted location. Combined with our Mobile Banking Solutions this offering is a leader in its class. They can provide their Payment Service Providers (PSP) with the ability to rollout new offerings and operations and adjust rates and charges in real-time. User friendly web based customer care and self-care GUIs enable the individual PSP to individualize their brands, languages, currencies and customer logic. This enables each PSP to maintain its own separate identity despite using the same platform as the competition.
PSPs, irrespective of size, who utilize the services of an Mobile Financial Services enabler with the Total-e™ platform, benefit from a carrier grade solution at a fraction of the cost.
