Multiple Product Types
Cell Power supports multiple types of prepaid electronic vouchers and voucher technologies in a single platform.
Flexible Commission Structures
The operator has complete control over the configuration of merchant and agent sales commissions in order to reflect the desired business model. Merchants receive discounts on their own sales, paid as a commission, whilst agents receive indirect commission (passive income) on sales made by consumers, merchants or other agents assigned to them. Cell Power supports a sales commission hierarchy of up to five levels, where indirect commissions can be paid to each agent in the hierarchy above which the sale is made. All commissions are calculated and disbursed online, i.e. in real-time when the sales transaction takes place.
All merchant (and agent) accounts are implemented as prepaid accounts, called wallets. Wallets are the accounts against which all accounting is performed. Merchants must credit their wallets, by making a deposit, in order to purchase or resell stock. All commissions are paid back into the wallet in real-time at the time of the sales transaction. No offline processing is required to settle or reconcile sales accounts and commissions.
Cell Power wallet holders can transfer funds between their wallets. This provides a powerful feature that allows merchants and/or agents to transfer value between themselves. An example of a useful application is where a merchant can recharge his own prepaid wallet by paying cash to an agent, who then makes an inter-wallet transfer to the merchant's wallet.
Automated Deposit Processing
Cell Power can be configured to receive and process SMS and/or email messages sent by the operator's financial institution for each deposit made into the operator's bank account. This is subject to the availability of a deposit notification service provided by the operator's financial institution. This provides a high level of business automation with a rapid turn-around time to process merchant deposits.
Online Transaction Processing
Cell Power is an online transaction processing (OTP) system. All billing events are recorded in real-time, and sales data are processed for near real-time, online analysis.
