Business Units Cash Paymaster Services (CPS) The company’s CPS business unit is based in Johannesburg, South Africa, and deploys its UEPS/EMV–Social Grant Distribution technology to distribute social welfare grants on a monthly basis to recipient cardholders in South Africa. These social welfare grants are distributed on behalf of the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA). CPS provides a transacting channel between social welfare grant recipient cardholders, beneficiaries, SASSA and formal businesses. CPS enrolls social welfare grant recipient cardholders and as appropriate, the respective beneficiaries by issuing the recipient cardholder with a UEPS/EMV smart card that digitally stores their biometric fingerprint templates on the card, enabling them to access their social welfare grants at any time or place and providing them with a fully-fledged bank account. The smart card is issued to the recipient cardholder on site and utilizes optical fingerprint sensor technology to identify and verify a recipient cardholder. The recipient cardholder inserts a smart card into the point of service (POS) device and is prompted to present fingerprint. If the fingerprint matches the one stored on the smart card, the smart card is loaded with the value created for that particular smart card. Additionally, during enrolment the company captures the recipient cardholder’s voice print to perform biometric verification when using channels, such as ATMs and traditional POS terminals that do not have fingerprint readers. The smart card provides the holder with access to all of the UEPS functionality. The smart card also offers the card holder the ability to make debit order payments to various third parties, including utility companies, schools, and retail merchants, with which the holder maintains an account. The card holder can also use the same smart card as a savings account.
