Econet and Mahindra Comviva were recognised for delivering financial and payment services in a country where the majority of the population is unbanked. The award is for Consumer service innovation. The platform is called Mobiquity and was adopted by Econet last year in August, a year after EcoCash had launched. Before Mobiquity, Econet had used an MMT platform supplied by a South African company called Pattern Matched Technologies.

According to Mahindra Comviva, the Mobiquity platform has been deployed by over 60 service providers in 40 countries and serves over 500 million mobile users globally. A mobile application firm, Comviva was owned by the Bharti Group until September 2012 when Tech Mahindra announced a 51% stake acquisition in the company.
