Atlantique Telecom has reportedly introduced the ‘Flooz’-branded electronic money transfer service for its Gabonese unit, Moov. According to online journal, the service was unveiled by director general Abdoulaye Cisse on Friday. Regional financial institution Orabank will act as the cellco’s partner, ensuring the security of all money transfers.

The Flooz service, previously launched over the networks of Moov’s sister companies in Benin, Cote d’Ivoire, Niger and Togo, provides mobile functions including payment for goods and services, money transfers, deposits and withdrawals to/from virtual bank accounts, other account management functions and mobile phone credit top-ups.
