More Amber™ Services

Reversed Billing USSD

PMT has pioneered a billing methodology whereby a corporate can pay for the USSD sessions that Customers use instead of the Customers paying for a session with their airtime.

Free Bind USSD

Free binds are short codes that are free of charge for Customers – ideal for enabling the selling of airtime over USSD when Customers do not have airtime to dial USSD. PMT work with WASP departments in Networks to enable these services for our clients. For more information please contact our WASP department.

Session Resume

MT has pioneered Session Resume in South Africa, whereby our intelligent Amber™ solution maps the last Menu position that the Customer had on the interface when their session terminates. If the Customer dials the shortcode again, an option is provided to resume the same session that was last accessed, while remembering all data captured in the process.

This saves time and money for Consumers on your platform, and increases convenience and ease of access.

Management Reporting on your Amber™ service

All instances of Amber™ come with a comprehensive SLA for hosting, Support, 24/7 Tier 2 and 3 Monitoring and Technical Support, as well as detailed MIS reporting. For more information please visit our section on MIS reporting.

Location Based Services

Case 1: Prevent Fraud

Consider that there are location-based scenarios that indicate to you that fraudulent activity is likely. For example, your Customer is located in Cape Town on the USSD session, but they are transacting at a retailer in Johannesburg – unlikely. Given this information, corporates can take preventative measures.

 

Case 2: Locate Service Points

Enabling LBS over USSD will enable Customers to locate their position in relation to your closest service center, service point or branch.

SIM Security

What is the RISK?

If your Customers’ SIMs have been compromised by means of a SIM Swap, any 3D secure verification or OTP to verify your Customer will be compromised. This potentially leads to thousands in losses to fraud not to mention reputational and operational risk.

 

What to do?

Ensure that your Customer Interfaces are securitised against SIM Swaps through our SIM Securitisation service, which provides you with the information needed to intervene if a SIM Swap took place.
