Internationally renowned money transfer service, WorldRemit, is preparing to take the Ghanaian money market by a storm. The company will launch its mobile app in Ghana in May.

In an intimate meeting with some journalists in Accra, Vice President of Product at WorldRemit, Alice Newton-Rex, said that to make sure that the company gave its customers the best with the mobile app, the team went out to meet people to understand what they would want. The product teams are out there trying to understand how to improve the customer experiences of being a receiver. We have been working to set up customer interviews; we spent the first two days doing one-on-one interviews and then showed the customers a prototype of our app and asked them for feedback,” she said.
