The PIN-Switch platform, together with the terminals, provides an integrated end-to-end payment management system for prepaid electricity vending, which is suitable for an electricity utility or any private payment management company that wishes to implement prepaid metering and prepaid vending.
Whether your operation in retail of office outlet based or field based the mobility element of the iPP9 allow you to go and vend tokens at the door-step rather than requiring customer to come and visit your stores or outlets.
PIN-Switch was developed with our Terminals in mind and at the core of the solution. Hardware terminals in such industries are always an afterthought and due to the various factors in their lifecycles (swap outs are common within 3-5 years). This in essence means a lengthy process of ensuring the systems continue without disruptions beyond the current versions. This ultimately has a knock-on effect on overhead on contracts, prices points and other unforeseeable issues relating to the business.
We spent just as much time resources and effort in supply chain of hardware as we did with our main platform. In order to ensure our future proofing, our terminals are based on the principle of build-once use for anything.
The platform facilitates the sale of prepaid electricity for meters that are Standard Transfer Specification (STS) compliant as our Sales Front-End integrates with XMLVend 2.x standard designed for smart meter management deployments.
Prepaid vouchers can be imported in bulk and assigned any monetary value via a secure centralised repository. Token generation, receipt printing service can be done on demand and aligned to any promotional or legacy payment system.
Bill payment or account payments for our dedicated utility channels can be seamlessly collect and manage outstanding arrears settlement. Payments are cross-references with unique ID numbers, and cash is transferred directly to the relevant receiver. Bills can be paid at retail outlets or settle agents to collect in the field.
The platform is designed to communicate seamlessly via ISO 8583 to any financial acquiring or issuing institution. This financial switching ability allows payments to be effected by approved credit cards and debit cards.
Our Sales Management Front-End can be modified to allow the collection, validation and processing on data on demand. Whether its survey administration, customer data/feedback gathering, meter numbers validation, audits and or inspections ? we can cover these areas in our custom extended mode of operation.
Our terminal comes in different configuration with a custom software client that seamlessly integrates with our Flagship service PIN-Switch. As these terminals are mobile POS terminals and connected to the Sales Management Component directly, they can be deployed in a number of different scenarios rapidly ? which can provided extended service delivery channels and revenue sources.
