Launched in May 2003, SMARTLoad is the worlds first electronic prepaid loading service that allows a client to load airtime into a SMART subscriber's GSM prepaid account.
This telecoms services in sachets approach enables a seller/client to load a customer with micro top-ups worth Php30, Php60, Php115, and PhP200.
At the onset of the service, e-load transfer was done only by transferring airtime from high-powered SIM cards from cell phone to cell phone, from distributor to dealer to finally, the end consumer. Now with this new generation technology that is CRGS, clients no longer need to relaod their SIM cards. They can now function like a small version of a telecoms company with direct access to the loading capacity of SMART Communications.
CRGS refers to Corporate Reloading Gateway System
It enables clients to extend selling of SMART Load Denominations to a prepaid Smart Phone Subscriber anywhere in the world and transfer of Smart Money E-cash to a Smart Money Card using a secured internet site. It is fast and secure using existing intelligent messaging protocol to address transmission of financial data to and from the client.
More than airtime, the system also transfers e-cash. CRGS can also provide a money transfer service by moving e-cash to target Smart Money Card Accounts. This would be a valuable service to those who wish to remit money to distant locations with as minimal fees and hassle as possible.
Individuals would merely need to enroll to enjoy this added service. They would be granted a user I.D. and with that they would be given a virtual wallet to add to at will. From there, funds can be transferred to a designated Smart Money Card.
