ONE: Prepaid Electricity Vending

Mtimandze Projects & Consulting also supplies, implements, and maintains the prepaid vending products and related services. We provide different kinds of electrical prepaid metering products for both commercial and households. All meter models in our range are comprised of both the metering and vending components required in order to provide a complete solution. The vending solution is managed via means of a prepaid utility management system. The system requires that all meters in the field are registered with the utility management system. During registration a meter is defined with a set of properties, including details of the owner, the current tenant and financial parameters for revenue management. Credit tokens can be obtained using SMS, WEB or WAP, depending on the management method chosen by the landlord or municipality, New Credit can be added to a prepaid meter either by the landlord/municipality or Prepaid Meters. There are two main management methods are Self-Managed Prepaid Metering and Outsourced Managed Prepaid Metering

Our prepaid vending products include the following:

1: Electricity Single-Phase Meters

Single-Phased is usually being used in homes or businesses where electricity is mostly used for general purpose such as lighting and heating.

2: Electricity Three-Phase Meters

Power stations supply three-phased electricity which is three times as much electricity along three wires as can be supplied in two wires, without having to increase the thickness of the wires. Large buildings, shopping centres, factories and office parks generally have three-phased electricity.

3: Prepaid Vending Recharge Options

We provide a variety of options for recharging a meter. There is flexibility in purchasing recharge tokens in store, online or using a mobile phone. Some of common examples illustrating how our vending meters get recharged includes the following:

1.Recharging by Universal Pin

2.Recharge by Retail Point of Sale

3.Recharging by Direct Deposit/Credit Card

4.Recharging by Cellphone
