first_imgThe technology is also used by Oltio parent company MTN for its Eazi Recharge pre-paid airtime top-up service, which already has over 110 000 users. Oltio is a joint venture company between pan-African mobile network operator MTN and Standard Bank. Intense competition 16 February 2012 SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo material According to GSMA chief marketing officer Michael O’Hara, there were a record 600 entries and an exceptionally high-quality field of contenders for this year’s awards, reflecting the intensity of competition and innovation across the mobile ecosystem. South African mobile services company Oltio has been nominated in the “best mobile money innovation” category at the annual GSMA Global Mobile Awards for its payD platform, which turns a user’s mobile phone into a remote point-of-sale device. Through the payD platform, launched in August, consumers can purchase products and services online and use their debit cards to pay for the purchase while making use of their mobile phones to enter their PINs. Standard Bank banking products director Sugendhree Reddy said that while credit cards had become ubiquitous with online purchases, the convenience and safety of online shopping was restricted to higher income customers with access to online payment facilities. “It is a significant achievement to have made the shortlist, and our warmest congratulations go to all the nominees announced today,” O’Hara said. “We look forward to the unveiling of the winners at the Mobile World Congress next month.” The GSMA Global Mobile Awards are the most sought after in the global communications industry. More than 170 independent analysts, journalists, academics and subject matter experts throughout the world participated in the judging of the 2012 awards. This has left many consumers out of the online transacting and purchasing loop – students, vendors and casual workers, for instance, have the financial means and tools to make online purchases but have been excluded from this fast growing technology as they do not have access to a credit card. He added that the company believed that payD had the ability to fundamentally change how consumers conduct online transactions, with more than 170 merchants who make use of the platform. “They are able to transact by simply entering their PIN securely on their handset.” Increasing access to online payments “Just being nominated is an honour for us,” Oltio head of new business development Dave Parratt said in a statement this week. “It is recognition that our commitment to innovation and in particular, making e-commerce accessible to more South Africans, is paying off.” “As a result of the innovative technology offered by payD, more Standard Bank customers across the country are now able to transact online,” said Reddy. “Those with debit cards are now included by making use of payD.last_img read more

first_imgEngland beat India by 196 runs in this 2000th Test match at Lord’s on Monday, which was also the 100th Test between India and England. Score | PhotosIndia started the day with an overnight score of 80/1 with VVS Laxman and Rahul Dravid at the crease as a target of 458 runs loomed large. Eventually, the target proved too massive for injury-hit India.In the morning session the visitors lost their opener Rahul Dravid when a James Anderson ball took a thick edge off his bat to land in the keeper Mat Prior’s gloves. He fell for 36 and India were down to 96/2.Post Dravid’s wicket Laxman and Gautam Gambhir became overtly cautious, playing on the deliveries that were coming straight to the bat and leaving the rest. They didn’t have a choice and they needed to stay in the middle for long to save the Test.Gradually, the two started chipping away from the massive 458-run target. But the partnership eventually came to an end when Anderson came around to get rid of Laxman on 56. Laxman went for a pull and ended up getting caught by Bell.In the next over England spinner Graeme Swann struck Gambhir on the pads and he was adjudged LBW on 22. India were 135/4 at the stage and were looking down the barrel.Once again Sachin Tendulkar stepped in and once again his fans cutting across nationalities started praying for his elusive 100th international century.Tendulkar’s partner in the middle was left-hander, Suresh Raina.At lunch India were 142/4, with Tendulkar and Raina at the crease and the visitors needed a massive 316 runs.advertisementA few minutes had gone by into the second session when England bowlers got the man they wanted. Sachin’s fans were again left disappointed when a James Anderson delivery trapped the batting maestro plumb in the front of the wicket when he was on 12.This was after he got two lives. First a Stuart Broad ball trapped him leg-before when he was on 11, but he was saved as the DRS is not being used for leg-before decisions in this series. And then, a ball before Anderson got him, he was dropped in the slips by Andrew Strauss. So Tendulkar’s highest at Lord’s continues to be 37.Post Tendulkar’s fall, Raina and skipper MS Dhoni batted with resolve to avoid defeat. The two Chennai Super Kings team-mates could be seen sharing a good partnership in the middle. At tea, the two were going steady at the crease and India score was 218/5.But the third session had a different tale to tell. Minutes into it, skipper MS Dhoni was seen walking back with Chris Tremlett claiming his first wicket of the innings when the India total was 225/6.Post that wicket it was a matter of time before England players were out there celebrating their win. The biggest hurdle in front of them was Suresh Raina and James Anderson scalped him to increase his victims tally to five and provided England with a fine win 196-run win.Raina scored a dogged 78, but could not save India from the jaws of defeat. Kevin Pietersen won the Man of the Match for his unbeaten double hundred.last_img read more
