PesaBox, a mobile application that computes a users M-PESA texts on-line to give them detailed reports and analytics via their phone or web
has released an update to its app in what it says better UX experience, new splash screen loading animation, ad-free among others.
“We have basically done a major UI and UX overhaul. Added a consolidated report that tabulates your MPESA. Your MPESA usage trend depicted in time vs amount graph. On the integration bit it simply allowing you to launch and use the MPESA SDK as though you were using it from the app drawer and after using it from within the app your transactions are mirrored immediately. And then sync is realtime.” the told TechMoran.
Pesabox founders told us
that Safaricom offers users M-PESA statement of user transactions but at a steep price and only offer after a max of 3 months. They therefore launched to solve the problem by giving M-PESA users consolidated statement, reports and the ability to export them into excel, pdf or any printable version for free.Available for the web and as an Android app, Pesabox needs one to register before they get access to view their transactions. Upon successful registration, the app scans both the Sim card and phone Mem for any messages originating from MPESA, which are then processed by the app and the transactions reflected on the site. Subsequently Any MPESA text that comes into the phone while the app resides on it will be noted and processed accordingly, even if the user deletes it from the inbox.
