Mahindra Comviva announced the launch of PreTUPS™ 6.4, a smarter and advanced version of its widely deployed electronic recharge and prepaid management solution. PreTUPS™ is a proven solution deployed by over 55 mobile operators in more than 40 countries globally. It has been integrated successfully with all the major IN platforms. Today, 10% of the world population's recharge is done through PreTUPS™ powering mobile services for 840 million people globally. PreTUPS™ 6.4 takes electronic recharge and prepaid management to the next level by providing new features that add efficiency to the prepaid business. This new version is being deployed by many leading telecom operators in South Asia, Africa and Latin America.
PreTUPS™ 6.4 includes Geo-fencing which enables operators to dynamically set a physical perimeter and control sales within the defined geography. Geo-fencing combined with digital maps provide the operators with a bird's eye view of the entire agent network in an easy to understand graphical format allowing them to take informed business decisions. It helps operators to track sales, forecast demand, monitor operations, and optimize agent network with location-based transaction tracking.
The advanced version encompasses Real-time Automatic Channel to Channel Transfer that makes account management simple and flexible for channel users (agents and distributors). The Auto C2C functionality of PreTUPS™ automatically credits the channel user's account when it goes below the set threshold. This feature prevents stock-out situations at the agent level, ensuring that no customer is ever turned down due unavailability of stock and thus preventing loss of revenues.
PreTUPS™ 6.4 has also improved loyalty and enhanced voucher management capabilities and functionality. This new version provides channel users with a greater visibility and control over loyalty programs by enabling them to enquire about their loyalty points, redeem points on their own and receive SMS notification throughout the promotion cycle. It supports management of multiple vouchers like prepaid, SMS, data, VAS and Wi-Fi vouchers, and also facilitates management of multiple denominations for each voucher type. These new features help prepaid business to become more effective and efficient.
Speaking on this, Srinivas Nidugondi, Senior VP and Head of Mobile Financial Solutions, Mahindra Comviva,said: "In a hypercompetitive and rapidly changing marketplace, telecom operators need an evolved and dynamic electronic recharge platform.

It pushes the immensely popular prepaid model to its fullest potential, giving service providers a highly evolved and complete prepaid account management solution."
