System

The Octopus System represents a major breakthrough in the application of smart card technology. It is designed to provide a fast, reliable, cost-effective and convenient payment platform for service providers of different sizes and business natures.

It is based on the Octopus Clearing House (OCH) System, which uses a complex set of business rules to validate each transaction prior to authorising settlement. A standard set of business reports is then sent to each participating service provider on a daily basis.
