Serge Belamant then joined DATABANK to use data control equipment and create the first scientifically operating financial system. Belamant’s program monitored how sustainable business really was. He then later moved to SASWITCH and helped SASWITCH become the second largest ATM switch in the world. Serge Belamant then developed the first RSA POS system that used a network of X.25 syncronized workstations. The banks did not implement his system so Belamant decided to leave SASWITCH and start Net1. Belamant then developed The Chip Offline Pre-Authorized Card. This led to his agreement with Visa to relocate to the USA and establish COPAC (Chip Offline Preauthorized Card). Later, Net1 bought CPS and developed a system that paid welfare grants to those in need in South Africa. Net1 provided interoperability, protection, and convenience when it applied UEPS to its functions. Belamant is now approaching retirement and is now working on projects with his son.
