VAS-X’s end-to-end prepay voucher platform for Cell C is now live

Johannesburg, 1 November 2021 – Following the 30 June 2020 signing of the agreement to deliver an Emulous Recharge Architecture (ERA) to Cell C, VAS-X, a global provider of convergent business and operations systems to communications service providers, announced that its ERA platform is now live, from 01 November 2021. The end-to-end prepay voucher platform delivers to Cell C a proven and complete system for the central management of prepaid vouchers, seamlessly interfacing with Online Charging Platforms and 3rd Party Systems, providing an open, standardized, modular and flexible approach to Prepaid OSS/BSS.

“As part of our digital transformation program Cell C required a true end-to-end management environment to support prepay, from the generation of the voucher or value code through to eventual redemption by the end user to enable them to use our network,” said Andre Ittmann, COO Cell C. “We worked closely with VAS-X on our requirements and after a competitive process, they were selected for their breadth of function and proven deployments in multiple challenging continents. In addition, Cell C was looking for assurance of business sustainability and a future-proof product for such a critical element of our operational ecosystem. With the acquisition of VAS-X by the Lumine Group, we knew this significant investment was safe!”

“We are thrilled to be providing Cell C with such an important strategic solution,” said John Moodie COO VAS-X.  “Our ERA platform addresses all of the challenges an operator faces with the management of prepaid airtime.  It is a complete solution that interfaces seamlessly with Cell C’s existing systems and is built using open standards to maximize the ease of deployment, and offers a completely secure, modular, scalable, and highly flexible platform for Mobile Network Operators such as Cell C.  This partnership further reinforces and provides early recognition of the Lumine Group’s acquire, strengthen and grow pillars in action.”
