Prepaid Management and Distribution


A one-stop solution for the complete operation of electronic prepaid distribution, payment and top-up operations for Communications Service Providers and Wholesale Distributors.

With decreasing Average Revenue per User (ARPU) the reduction of costs of distribution and increased distribution efficiencies have become a crucial KPI for CSPs and their distribution partners. Globetom’s GP3 prepaid and payment distribution solution offers a one-stop platform to take care of the entire distribution chain from core voucher operations and pinless top-ups through to retail outlet and distribution device management.

GP3 offers CSPs the ability to consolidate their prepaid distribution operations onto a centralized platform that enables CSPs and their distribution network to rapidly convert scratch-card distribution to a secure electronic channel. In addition, distributors gain the ability to offer products in a prepaid model and create an electronic distribution channel.

Experience: Globetom’s Prepaid Platform is active in New Zealand, Zambia, Qatar, Lesotho and Nigeria and generates over 3 million transaction journal entries per month in Zambia alone.

Carrier Grade:  Tested in highly demanding environments and proven as a public cloud solution for co-location of country operations of multi-nationals as well as distribution operations for wholesalers operating in multiple geograpical locations.

Agile: Accommodate new service providers, create new voucher types or change rate plans for distributor commission earnings rapidly.
