This note examines harnessing technology to optimise the delivery of remittance services – particularly for banks. It assesses the challenges for banks with the growing use of their core banking systems as a vehicle for remittances, and how they might transform these challenges into opportunities through using Banking Correspondents and e-/m-banking. It analyses whether remittance recipients in rural areas have access to, and the ability to use, mobile phones for this purpose.
