NetOne Moves To Solve Salary Payments Crisis
State Owned Mobile Telecommunications giant NetOne has introduced its “OnePay”, a bulk payments platform that allows an entity to process payments centrally to any OneMoney registered user. The platform is expected to ease the payment of salaries by employers.
The launch of the OnePay comes after a salary payments crisis resulting from a dispute between local banks and Mauritian company, Paynet.
NetOne chief mobile financial services officer, Nkosinathi Ncube, said that the service is available to corporate and government entities, state-owned enterprises, non-governmental organisations, or any organisation which is in need of an effective payment solution. Speaking at the launch, Ncube said:
At a time when individuals are craving the assurance that they will receive their salaries with speed, safety and consistency, the OnePay platform prides itself on its proven ability to deliver.”
OnePay is a secure solution offering convenience at affordable rates and is hassle free as transaction statements can be printed or viewed from the OnePay portal.
263Chat reports that with OnePay, one simply uploads a bulk file with up to five thousand entries and immediately transfers money simultaneously. Each customer would receive a confirmation SMS instantly upon payment.
The service is reported to have undergone rigorous testing and has been deployed to several private and public sector organisations.
Besides guarantees of security, convenience and affordable rates, OnePay customers will also enjoy OneMoney benefits which include ZIPIT to 19 banks, swiping at Zimswitch enabled POS machine with a OneMoney Debit Card, paying for bills, purchase of airtime through USSD menu *111#.
