Impresa PREPAID

Comprehensive end-to- end prepaid billing solution

IMPRESA PREPAID

Overview

Impresa Prepaid engine is a complete prepaid billing engine that comes with prebuilt APIs that can be integrated with any CIS, Billing and Meter Data Management System. It provides the utilities with the ability to retrieve usage from meter data management systems and convert the usage into amount then validate if the user has enough balance to continue to receive the power. Multiple top-up/recharge reminders will be sent to customers based on the thresholds defined and in case customers did not recharge in the stipulated time then power will be discontinued to the customers by triggering a disconnect command from Impresa CX.

Impresa Prepaid, seamlessly integrated with Impresa CX, redefines the utility experience by providing users unparalleled engagement and control. Through an intuitive smartphone app and website interface, customers can effortlessly monitor their accounts, make smaller, more frequent payments, and set personalized reminders. The flexible payment structure empowers users with financial control, while transparent account monitoring offers real-time insights into estimated service days left, meeting the demand for transparency in the utility sector.
