ÂTodayÂs prepaid market demands end-to-end integrated solutions that allow our customers to establish, maintain and grow their businesses online, and Managed PrepaidÂs software application was a logical match for NetworkIPÂs platform.Â
The combination of these two powerful technologies allows a prepaid card distributor access to a strong and robust online presence. Customers can securely manage and maintain their manageIT eCommerce website with no additional programming skills. Advanced features available through the integrated application include Real-Time PIN Recharge, Auto-Recharge, Pin-less Dialing, CDRÂs and more.
