Advanced Viewing of the Emortelle MasterCard Feature
On Thursday 21st November 2019, MSD held a meeting at the Knutsford Court Hotel, Jamaica to provide our Jamaican customers with an advanced viewing of the MasterCard feature in Emortelle. In attendance were representatives of nine institutions in Jamaica. Customers delighted in learning of the benefits to providing MasterCards to their members like:
- POS & ATM withdrawals anywhere in the world
- Shop Online
- Secure Embedded Chip Technology
- Custom design card with CU imagery and logo
- MasterCard branded- reliable, reputable, highly-respected, widely-accepted
Amongst the many features discussed were:
- Ease of managing cardholders in the Card Management Module in Emortelle
- Multiple Products on card; like Line of Credit and Savings
- MasterCard Application via Online Banking
- Automatic Transaction Alerts
- Ease of use reports for Transaction Activity & Settlement
Also presenting at this meeting were the Chief Operating Officer- Mr Lennox Robinson and his Marketing and Business Development Manager Jodiann Barnes of Alliance Payment Services Ltd (APSL), Jamaica. Mr Robinson spoke about the relationship his company has with MasterCard Inc as the MasterCard Agent in Jamaica authorised to issue the co-branded card. Ms Barnes spoke about additional benefits that APSL is offering with the MasterCard like:
- Purchase phone credits
- Pay bills
Both Mr Robinson and Ms Barnes were on the receiving end of a lot of questions as participants echoed their interest and showed their excitement for this readily available feature in Emortelle.
The meeting would not have been complete without actual users of this product voicing their experience with implementing the Mastercard and this was done by Mr Roger Watson of TIP Friendly Society Ltd who gave a positive account as he stated "this feature reduces the time and effort a member has to expend to access our loan facility... thereby reducing HR and other overheads to service the member for the same product multiple times...We know that this would not have been possible without our Core Banking System provider, Micro Software Designs or our MasterCard provider Alliance Payment Services Ltd - so we thank them whole-heartedly for getting us to this pinnacle." TIP Friendly Society is MSD's first customer to implement the card in Jamaica and based on customer's feedback; soon others will be joining in the MasterCard issuing institutions.
