WORKING AT PPS

THE PPS LIFE

Here at PPS we are all about people. Our colleagues, our clients, our partners!  All important, all matter to PPS.
 
What’s it like to work at PPS – well one thing is for sure – it’s never a dull moment. Every day, we are energised to go the extra mile. We work together no matter where we are in the world. Communication, collaboration; we can’t help ourselves, we just click as a team, well actually we feel like one family, the PPS family.
 
It’s fair to say life is busy, hectic sometimes, tight timescales, some may say very tight. But we deliver because that’s what our clients deserve. Quality delivery every time and we are the team to do it.
 
Did we say we have masses of fun too! Well if we didn’t, we do! Check out these pics. They say it all. Summer and Winter parties, celebrating our successes, team build activities in some of the most amazing locations in the UK.
 
Of course, we can’t all be together at the moment, but it doesn’t stop us having fun, we even managed a virtual summer celebration and a winter virtual gathering. And to help us do this every single one of us got an ‘e-gift’ voucher so we could say ‘cheers’ and pat ourselves on the back for a job very well done.
 
Because despite the challenges that this last year threw at us, we kicked back, and we delivered, time and time again.
 
PPS life, that’s it in a nutshell, but don’t take our word for it, see what our colleagues have to say below.

Sebastian Evans
founder of IndieGo
WHAT OUR COLLEAGUES SAY
"I’ve been working at PPS for almost 3 years now. My career here began in Customer Services where I was a Customer Service Advisor. After a number of challenging yet enjoyable months in this role I moved to a more senior position within Service Management as a Service Support Manager. PPS is committed to providing opportunities to develop and learn new skills and actively encourages and supports career progression. It is great to be part of a company that genuinely cares about their employees especially during the recent pandemic. I am excited about my future here at PPS."

Ella C, Service Support Manager
"PPS has been a great opportunity for me in terms of its fast developing nature and high energy setting. As the industry is rapidly growing, there is always scope to learn be it MDES, 3DS or Open banking. Working during Covid has not been easy for most of us however, the spirit of PPS has always helped me strive for the best. With new start-ups, back to back meetings and speed for launch, you’re always busy and on your feet!"

Pearl B, Junior Project Manager
"My Journey has always been full of surprises and a never ending flow of new experiences and events. Covid did strike me at the worst time when I started the new role internally, but my team were always there and helped me make it through!"

Holley F, Junior Platform Support Engineer
"Working for PPS is like going for a long run; hard work, and you may feel like packing it in everyone now and again, but totally worth it at the end of the day. There’s always a meaty challenge to get stuck into, and if you work hard and do a great job, everyone is able to see that and it encourages more people to step up and stand out! Having got married, bought and moved into a first house and been promoted to Banking Operations Manager while in COVID restrictions, I can safely say that managing a team remotely is the most difficult, although my wife may disagree! It’s been wonderful to see everyone willing and able work as normal while at home, although I miss the casual banter that grabbing a coffee usually entailed. I can’t wait to see everyone again, only to laugh while saying goodbye when I jet off for a long overdue honeymoon!"

Alex B, Banking Operations Manager
"I’m so glad to have been given a position in PPS, it is an amazing company to be a part of.

Since I started here I’ve been able to learn so much about the fintech sector in addition to learning about the development, delivery and operational support of industry leading features.

I’ve had pleasure of working with many friendly highly intellectual peers and I eagerly look forwards to continuing my work here at PPS and carrying on what has been so far a fulfilling and successful career."

Leon H, Project Manager
"Working at PPS has been a Joy, I’ve been here 2 years and worked in 3 roles during that time. The company recognises the importance of the individual & will continually provide opportunities for improving your existing skills or taking your career in a totally different direction. I honestly believe anyone who is willing to try can find a home at PPS.

Everything you need to launch a successful programme under one roof

Transaction processing

PPS has one of the most complete and innovative prepaid platforms available in Europe today. We have an in house, multi lingual, multi currency processing platform that is entirely dedicated to the prepaid market. We regularly process millions of transactions for open loop¹, closed loop² and restricted access network (RAN) (also known as private label/filtered loop) programmes.

Our leading edge processing platform is designed to support many different transactions, from card generation through to expiry. We also offer full clearing and settlement services.

In addition to traditional closed and open loop cards, the PPS platform supports a vast array of loyalty, virtual cards and multi currency wallets, including non financial wallets for loyalty points and other non financial instruments.

PPS brings to its clients:

Platform flexibility: our transaction processing platform is capable of handling all transaction types, including both full and partial redemption; it supports Mastercard®, ISO, APACS, XML web messaging and proprietary messaging formats where needed

Consistency for retailers: merchants can treat Mastercard® transactions in the same way as all other transactions

Built to banking standards: PPS is PCI level 1 DSS compliant and certified by Mastercard®

Compatibility with existing systems: we can work with proprietary formats and translate them into the appropriate messages within our platform

Service Availability: our platform operates 24/7, 365 days a year, to ensure peace of mind for our customers and their cardholders

Resilience: our primary and backup systems run simultaneously in order to ensure full redundancy of all data. This way, all of our data is mirrored across duplicate sites in real time, so that all systems contain identical information

Global reach: all of our solutions are multi currency and multi lingualIn addition to these transaction processing services, PPS is able to offer its clients an end to end service all under one roof. For more information about what we can offer and who we are, please visit our About Us section.

¹Open Loop: a card programme that is associated with an electronic payment network, such as Mastercard®, and honoured wherever this network is accepted.  

²Closed Loop: a card programme that is merchant specific and used for transactions exclusively at a particular merchant’s locations.

Direct Integration
In order to provide superior transaction processing alongside other value added services, PPS has integrated its processing platform with many clients and partners.To this end, we have developed a suite of APIs (application programming interfaces) to help clients’ systems communicate and interact with all of PPS’ core systems seamlessly. These APIs include:

Web services
Web authorisation
Batch file interface

Mastercard®
PPS is a Mastercard® magnetic stripe, EMV and PayPass certified processor.  Many of our programmes use the Mastercard® network for redemption.  Mastercard® is accepted around the world at retail outlets and ATM machines, wherever the Mastercard® (or Maestro/Cirrus) sign is displayed. Mastercard® is currently accepted in more than 24.6m locations in more than 210 countries worldwide.For Mastercard®/Maestro badged and Mastercard® RAN products where the Mastercard®/Maestro badge is removed, we can offer Magstripe, EMV (Chip) or PayPass solutions for processing.

PayPass
Developed by Mastercard®, PayPass™ enables cardholders to make everyday purchases quickly and safely with just a tap of a Mastercard® or Maestro® card on a contactless enabled device. In the UK, the contactless transaction is authorised for payment up to £25. For payments higher than this amount, the cardholder will be required to swipe or ‘dip’ the card and authorise the transaction by entering his or her PIN number.

PPS currently offers several contactless cards.

NFC
Near Field Communication (NFC) is a technology that allows a mobile phone to securely transmit and receive information wirelessly. NFC works in much the same way as a contactless card, but uses a mobile device rather than a card. NFC-enabled mobile phones can be used to pay for everyday purchases by tapping the phone on a contactless device at any Point of Sale (PoS) offering this payment option.The payment limitations of NFC are similar to those of contactless cards: for purchases up to £25, the payment can be made using the phone’s NFC functionality. For higher amounts, however, a PIN code will need to be entered onto the phone in order to authorise the transaction.

PPS currently offers a number of NFC-enabled programmes.

Custom Protocol
The PPS processing platform is extremely flexible and can work with a client’s preferred custom protocol, if desired. Tailor made protocols like these can often facilitate integration, interfaces, messaging, and agreed roles and responsibilities – or can simply be used to cater to a client’s preferred way of working.

Programme Services

ACCOUNT MANAGEMENT & SERVICE IMPROVEMENT REVIEW
PPS provides a day to day commercial contact who works in partnership with our clients to introduce innovation and agree a product/enhancement roadmap for implementation. These commercial contacts will arrange regular account management discussions, coordinate on going service improvement reviews and will plan in strategic reviews with key stakeholders.  They will also facilitate any change requests from initial enquiry through to implementation and launch.As part of PPS’ account management approach, our clients will also be assigned an allocated service improvement manager who will work with the client and PPS’ account managers to focus on operational coordination and optimisation. In addition, all of our account managers routinely monitor all client Service Level Agreements (SLAs) and take action before an SLA is breached.We also pride ourselves on conducting quarterly service reviews on a consistent basis, in partnership with the account team, so that we can report on our performance against our agreed SLAs and address any operational concerns. As a result, we are able to improve any behaviour or processes that are not delivering a best in-class experience for our clients.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT
PPS provides clients with a dedicated project manager in order to deliver a complete end to end programme – within agreed timescales and on budget – throughout the entire project lifecycle, from initiation, definition and implementation through to testing, deployment and close down.

Cardholder Services

Call Centre
Working with its partners, PPS provides multi channel customer service support to its clients for all general cardholder queries, as well as card blocking, card cancellation, PIN reset, logging lost/stolen/damaged cards, providing card balances, transaction queries/disputes and fraud management.  PPS works very closely with its clients in order to ensure that the branding of all of these services reflects their specific objectives and values.Alternatively, if a client would prefer to manage its customer services directly, we can also provide appropriate train the trainer training and on going support.

Interactive Voice Response (IVR)
IVR (Interactive Voice Response) is an automated telephone service that allows cardholders to self manage many different aspects of their card account, including activation, balance enquiries and to report lost and stolen cards. IVR can also be used to direct callers to a live customer service agent in order to assist with general customer service queries. As with all of our solutions, our IVR system can be branded by individual programme, according to our client’s needs.We can also provide clients with IVR phone numbers that include customised ‘menu managers’ that are linked to our own back office systems. This way, callers can be automatically routed to the relevant PPS’ function, such as a balance enquiry or to request a telephone number for instant live customer service, when prompted.

SMS
Together with our partners, we give our customers the ability to use SMS (text messaging) in two important ways:

Incoming SMS
An SMS ‘voucher request’ enables potential cardholders to pay for a card application using their mobile phone. Callers simply need to text a keyword (e.g. “Apply”) to a short code, and then an SMS is sent back to the cardholder (reverse charged to their mobile phone bill) with a voucher code that they can use in the online card application process.Callers can also use SMS to request their account balance by texting the word “BALANCE” along with their account number to a short code. Once this has been done, an SMS is sent back to the cardholder containing the account balance. To use this service, the caller’s mobile phone number must be registered against his or her card account.

Outgoing SMS (and/or email)
Outgoing SMS are typically triggered by system events, such as balance changing alerts or to communicate regulatory information changes. An email or SMS can only be sent if the relevant information is registered against the user’s account, and it is the cardholder’s responsibility to keep this information up to date.

Quick Response (QR) Codes
PPS has developed a QR code for cardholders to check their balance easily

ACCOUNT SERVICING
My Account
My Account is an online portal/mobile app hosted by PPS. Cardholders simply need to register their cards on My Account in order to get instant access to their card information in real time.Each cardholder has an associated account where his or her card balance is held.  The account can be topped up using My Account and the funds will then be available to spend using the card.Cardholders can register their details, check their balances and review all their transactions online or via the My Account app on their mobile device.  Personalised notifications can also be set up very easily. For example, cardholders can choose to set up a notification to warn them if the funds on a card are running low.  For added security, cards that are reported as lost, stolen or damaged can be instantly blocked to prevent fraudulent usage.My Account can also help to reduce operational costs for businesses significantly, since cardholders typically use these self service functions to manage their accounts themselves.

My Business Account
Our end to end solution for corporate programmes, combined with our My Business Account (MBA) web portal, provides programme managers with instant access to a unique gateway that allows them to manage all of the company’s prepaid card activity in one place.  MBA is therefore the ultimate tool for small to medium (SME) enterprises that are looking to organise, analyse, monitor and control their business expenses easily.The creation of a corporate Master Account enables the company to segregate funds between the business and its approved cardholders, and to fund cardholder accounts in seconds. The MBA portal also makes it easy to manage the Master Account and all other cardholders’ accounts online, in real time, including reviewing transactions history and exporting data.

CARDHOLDER SERVICES
PPS provides a full suite of self service options for all types of programmes, so that cardholders can always manage their own accounts easily. All of these services have been created by PPS and are managed and hosted in house.

Security

PPS takes information security extremely seriously; it is ingrained into the company’s culture, as evidenced by our dedicated and highly skilled security staff. Information security is not only operated as a business as usual activity, but is actively championed by all employees. The importance of this area is fully supported by the management team and at all levels of the business. As such, we make sure that every aspect of data communication is always performed in a secure way.

RISK MANAGEMENT
Our dedicated security team ensures that risk is managed effectively and in accordance with our business objectives. Furthermore, we are committed to creating, maintaining and testing robust business continuity strategies that will reduce the impact of any unforeseen events and safeguard our reputation in the event of a crisis. PPS continually educates its employees in all of these areas in order to build a risk-aware culture across the organisation.

PCI DSS
The major global payment brands require that every entity – including financial institutions, merchants and service providers – that stores, processes, or transmits payment card data, in any channel (including catalogue and online retailers, as well as brick-and-mortar businesses) must be in compliance with PCI-DSS.As a principal Mastercard® member, PPS is required to validate and enforce its PCI DSS compliance and reporting requirements to the highest level, and we are committed to maintaining and improving our performance in this area each year. PPS has been recognised as one of MasterCard®’s compliant service providers.

Above all else, we aim to provide a safe and trusted service and environment for our cardholders and business clients.
