Kash Mart is currently in discussions with various banking partners and wireless carriers to introduce mobile programs in other regions of the world. The technology is currently based on Symbian and Window Mobile platforms with plans to extend it to the Android and iPhone platforms by December 2010.
The company is aiming to service more agent locations with countries in Africa, Asia, Indo Asia, South America, and CIS countires.
