ITU Workshop on Quality of Service and Quality of Experience of Digital Financial Services


​The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) organized a virtual workshop on “Quality of Service and Quality of Experience of Digital Financial Services” on 12 May 2022 from 1400 to 1700 Geneva time (UTC+2)

Digital financial services (DFS), particularly those which rely on mobile networks, have emerged as an essential service in the developing digital society. Defining appropriate testing methodologies and set of quality metrics to assess user experience and quality of service is necessary to support efforts made towards scaling digital financial services and provide guidance to regulatory authorities on consumer protection. 

This workshop was organized in the context of WTSA-20 Resolutions 89 on “promoting the use of information and communication technologies to bridge the financial inclusion gap” and 95 on “ITU Telecommunication Standardization Sector initiatives to raise awareness on best practices and policies related to service quality” with the following objectives:
The workshop was targeted to representatives from telecommunications and financial regulatory authorities, policymakers, digital financial services providers, mobile network operators, vendors and other stakeholders with an interest in the quality assessment of digital financial services.

Participation was free of charge and open to all interested stakeholders including ITU Member States, Sector Members, Associates and Academic Institutions and to any individual from a country that is a member of ITU and who wishes to contribute to the work.
