Mobile fintech solutions company, Entersekt announced that it has successfully integrated with Huawei Mobile Services (HMS). HMS is Huawei’s alternative to Google Mobile Services, a collection of applications and application programming interfaces that are typically pre-installed on Android phones and tablets.
Entersekt fast-tracked work on its mobile software development kit (SDK) to facilitate push messaging and ensure that consumers could continue to bank and transact securely after upgrading to newly manufactured Huawei mobile devices.
The fintech provider holds an 80 per cent share of the South African digital banking authentication market and counts major overseas banks as customers too. The updated SDK is now ready for release to app developers across the globe.
Dewald Nolte, CCO at Entersekt, says “our engineers report that the integration effort ran very smoothly, with proactive support and collaboration from Huawei.”
“We are thrilled to have Entersekt as an HMS partner,” said Likun Zhao, VP at Huawei Consumer Business Group Southern Africa. “This partnership benefits South African consumers significantly, as it means that existing apps from Absa, Nedbank, and Old Mutual can be optimized for new Huawei devices, and we will also be able to add Capitec Bank to the suite of banking apps Huawei AppGallery currently offers.”
The Huawei AppGallery is available in 170 countries, has 400 million monthly active users, and features apps from 1.3 million developers around the world.
