All SMS sent by our system will be accompanied by the web address as to verify that the message is indeed sent by Prepaid Meters. The web address is of the utility vending system Aurora located at www.prepaidmeters.net . This at the same time this allows for customers and meter users to login to the system or to contact us should they need to query any communications sent to them regarding their transactions, accounts and meters.
Information and tab access on meters and tenants
When a landlord logs in and wants to work on a meter it will not show all the tenant’s information if the details are incomplete. The tenant’s details will first need to be completed correctly before all the tabs will be available. This is for security reasons as well as having the ability to produce correct billing information, should it be requested at a later date.
Vending with decimal points is allowed
Prior to this update vending was restricted to whole numbers. For example you are now able to vend for R230, 50c.
Transfer Wallet Funds Facility
The transfer wallet funds facility for landlords and delegates has been removed due to user errors leading to confusion. The support Centre will handle transfers. Resellers will still have access to the Facility. For queries or help with this function, please contact the Customer Support Centre.
The Delegate Function
Aurora has a function called Delegates. This Function is available to property owners who have multiple properties and multiple managing agents or property managers. The owner or landlord creates accounts within the system giving each agent or manager rights to manage individual or multiple properties. The actions, permissions and access for each assigned delegate are customizable. When an agent/ manager process actions it will be as if the owner has approved the actions.
An example would be if a Landlord has 10 properties and each property has 10 tenants per building. This would be far too much for one person to manage on a daily basis. He does however have 2 managing agents/managers. He is able to allocate access to the first 5 properties to Agent A to manage and he allocates the remaining 5 properties to Agent B. Each Agent will only be able to access their assigned properties, while the Landlord will still have access to all 10 properties and be able to manage any query if need be.
