The Cell Power software has been designed and developed by Expertron Group (Pty) Ltd, a software development company located in Pretoria, in the Republic of South Africa. Expertron recognised the need for an innovative and cost-effective electronic voucher distribution platform during the early 2000s, when Cell Power was originally developed as a system for vending prepaid electricity vouchers from cellphones (and hence the origin of the name: cellphones and empowerment by selling prepaid electricity within the community). At the time, the concept was totally unique, with no competing products in the market place.
Expertron embraces the ideals of social upliftment. In collaborating with municipalities and government, the Cell Power platform has been deployed in previously under-serviced communities, providing jobs and enabling basic service delivery. By leveraging pervasive cellular networks, even the poorest and most remote communities are serviced. Expertron
