Employee Spotlight - Anurag Jain
Prepay Nation and Elemt’s Founder, Anurag Jain, had a vision long before launching these two companies. This vision involved connecting family and friends from anywhere on the globe.
Anurag moved to the US from India in the early 2000s and right away he realized that communication and contact in general with loved ones back home was difficult and expensive. Anurag then started working with a company called giftstoindia.com to help bridge that gap, since the service allowed the Indian diaspora living in the US and Europe to send gifts to their family.
In 2005, Anurag started a company called MagicPins which was primarily a reseller of mobile airtime in the form of pin vouchers. Most of the prepaid airtime sold in the US was in the form of physical cards. So he thought to himself, at the end of the day it’s just a pin number, why not make it digital? This is how MagicPins came about. He began to make connections with mobile operators who would send in digital versions of pins on the scratch off cards, they would store it in their databases, and sign up dealers that would sell those pin vouchers via their online portals. This company was very successful and eventually, in 2010, Anurag decided to move onto his next and greatest endeavor yet… Prepay Nation (PPN).
If you look at Prepay Nation, it’s nothing but a combination of both of these previous businesses that he was involved in. Sending airtime, as a gift, to friends and family back home. Over the last 12 years, Prepay Nation has developed various partnerships with mobile operators around the globe. During this period a specific need developed from the perspective of these operators, which was the need for state-of-the-art back bones to run their businesses, distribute their airtime, data bundles, and services. That’s where Anurag’s background, experience, and technology came in handy and eventually how Elemt was founded through PPN as an extension of the technology and SaaS side of their business.
Anurag’s vision, once carried out in the form of these businesses, became a lifeline for the diaspora, nurturing a sense of belonging, love, and togetherness. Anurag's initiatives not only connected hearts but also provided a space for cultural exchange, preserving traditions, and strengthening the bonds that make us who we are. It was a testament to the power of technology and the immense value of staying connected with our loved ones, no matter where life takes us. He quoted a book called “Give and Take” by Adam Grant and a study that was run on 3 different types of people and which of those are more successful business individuals. The three individuals are: 1. Aggressive Person (meaning a shark that is aggressive with every business approach and forces the issue) 2. Transactional Person (meaning someone who works under strict transactional conditions in every aspect of their businesses.) 3. Giver (The person who is constantly willing to give themselves, their support, and knowledge in business regardless of conditions, transactions, or aggression. The study shows that the latter of the 3 is statistically the most successful. Those individuals tend to attract other individuals with the same mindset and traits, and form a connected community that propels itself forward exponentially. This results in groups of highly successful people who are always going the extra mile for one another.
This mindset and lifestyle is one that Anurag has shown evidently since the beginning of his journey, and the success has undoubtedly followed him.

Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago - ELEMT an affiliate of Prepay Nation, is excited to announce the launch of its latest innovation, a new point of sale web-based solution called HUMMINGBIRD. This groundbreaking point of sale system is designed to enable authorized channel partners to credit both mobile top-ups and data plans to bmobile subscribers directly.
With HUMMINGBIRD, partners of TSTT, and its brand, bmobile, can access their full catalog of products seamlessly, using our secure online application for the sale of prepaid airtime and data, making it easier than ever for stores to process large volumes of traffic, quickly and efficiently.
Our new point of sale solution is designed to be used on any computer, tablet or mobile device, enhancing the ability of channel partners to maximize their sales and profits by giving them access to new products, sales and incentives provided by bmobile.
After researching our client's needs, and meeting with multiple store owners, clerks and customers ELEMT has developed a solution that provides cutting-edge, real-time transaction processing that addresses the main pain points that stores historically had with RTR:
Security features that provide owners with safety and control of their platform users.
Fast purchasing flow which enables clerks to process customers transactions in a more timely fashion.
Ability to process multiple top-ups in the same transaction, significantly reducing wait times.
Transparency for bmobile to manage its partners more closely, giving them incentives and pushing them to achieve targets.
"We're excited to see our platform helping our partners achieve their goals," says Lucas Brasil, the Business Director for ELEMT. "After months of research and meetings with the bmobile team, store owners, clerks, and end-customers, we developed a product that addresses real friction points."
The launch comes at a time when bmobile is experiencing significant growth in its user base and an increasing need for keeping up with customers’ demands.
“The platform is representative of extensive product development to ensure it is tailored to our unique needs and circumstances," says Kashif Greaves, Assistant General Manager Consumer Sales (Ag). “We are confident the introduction of this solution will further propel our business’ objectives of digital transformation and provision of technological tools that support our customers' needs.”
bmobile has already begun deploying Hummingbird to its authorized dealers nationwide. We are excited to introduce this innovative product launch and we are confident that this collaboration will enable our partners to enjoy a new level of convenience and efficiency. As we continue to innovate and improve our portfolio, we look forward to continuing to provide cutting-edge solutions that meet the evolving needs of our customers and their customers along with them.
“The launch of bundle sales at dealer stores is a testament to our dedication to enhancing the customer experience and providing value for money,” added Kashif Greaves. “We have listened, and we are excited to introduce this for our loyal and valued customers and are confident that this collaboration will also enable our partners to enjoy a new level of convenience and efficiency, which will ultimately redound to the benefit of the consumer.
