Mobile Banking

Mapa’s quarterly Mobile Banking Monitor assesses financial services providers across the world, to help clients visualise the trends and developments in mobile banking. Are your competitors and peers making it easy and secure to log in, trying new authentication methods, cross-selling relevant products at the right time, and innovating in terms of PFM, Open Banking and AI? Are they letting users complete tasks like making payments, managing multiple accounts, activating and blocking cards, and checking their balance on mobile? Our quarterly benchmarking matrix and accompanying report answers all these questions and more.
