2002: The electronic Top Up system is launched in France
The ingenious Top Up system was ready for launch in September 2001. Not only major mobile operators but even retail chains like 7-11, a petrol station and popular joint like Mc Donald’s joined in. The platform was developed in close co-operation with them, along one of the biggest distributors in the western hemisphere, Brightpoint. The new system was then launched in Sweden and received a lot of appreciation from the prepaid subscriber base making it an instant hit!
IT visionary Mikael Signarsson came up with the idea of letting people perform Top Up’s from wherever they are, be it on the internet or life outside it. With a team of 5 software developers, an intense product development process began. In November the first transaction in Sweden is performed for mobile distributor Brightpoint.
