Emerald™ - Prepaid Services

Emerald™ is directly integrated to all Major MNOs in South Africa and can likewise, be integrated to other MNOs in other territories like we are in various African Territories. In doing so we enable you to distribute Airtime which is either PINned, or PINless.
PINned Airtime

PINned Airtime is the traditional Voucher, which is accompanied with a PIN where the PIN must be entered correctly to enable redemption.

PINless Airtime

PINless airtime only requires the recipient’s phone number, and the amount. Coupled with our Number Portability Service, where the MNO can be ascertained, the purchase of airtime is easy, instant, with no risk.

PPE, Utility and other Distribution & Reselling

PMT is also integrated to a large distributor of Prepaid Electricity for all South African Municipalities. The same can be done for other territories and is available for other utilities such as public transport, education and healthcare for example (see bespoke distribution below). The Emerald™ system is flexible enough to either create vouchers, or store and redeem third party vouchers in its SecureVault, enabling different Service Agreement models prevalent in the Prepaid resell market.Because we have already integrated to providers, we also understand the PPE Market, compliance and best practice and can assist with your implementation.

Retail Vouchers & Coupons

Emerald™ can generate vouchers or store 3rd party vouchers in the SecureVault for distribution and redemption. As such, Emerald™ is ideal for the generation of Retail or Value-based vouchers to be distributed in specific or ongoing retail or service campaigns. Emerald™ has been deployed in various Retail-based Rewards programmes to this end.

Distributing Vouchers via Agent Networks

Increasing the footprint of your business with USSD Services might not be enough to reach the full capacity of your market, and therefore it is beneficial to deploy with an Agent Network in some regards, especially with prepaid services. This does not only increase turn-over, but also takes advantage of SME creation incentives. Emerald™ has a flexible and scalable hierarchical structure that can enable the creation of complex Distributor, Super Agent and Agent relationships for the distribution of your vouchers to consumers.

Bespoke Vouchers

Agent Distribution

Emerald’s Hierarchical Structure

Emerald™ is enabled with a powerful, yet simple Back End CAP (Central Administrative Portal) Interface, which allows you to control and configure various levels of hierarchical structures for the distribution of your vouchers, and the movement of money in the system. The Hierarchy will enable the creation of branches, sub-branches, Distributors and levels of Agents as an example.

 

This allows the movement of money from the sale of vouchers, with commission structures, to move to the top, while vouchers are distributed to the lower levels. There is full control over vouchers in the hierarchy, as well as each pre-funded account of each hierarchical entity – thus reducing fraud, recon time, and distribution risk.

 

The Roaming Agent model

There is a growing need for prepaid services to become ubiquitous, while there is a large number of SMEs needing opportunities. Enabling vendors, street merchants, and roaming agents to resell and distribute prepaid solutions to consumers wherever they are. The Agent pre-funds their account, purchases vouchers, coupons or tickets for various services they want to sell – where vouchers are then received to distribute via a mobile interface, App, or POS.
