PRSMS numbers are special numbers, shorter than a full telephone number, which can be used to request information, register an enquiry, running a promotional competition and make a donation to charity. They are used to capture content information displayed on all forms of print advertising, television and radio, on outdoor media, promotional literature, point of sale goods, direct mail and on fleet vehicles. They are designed to be shorter and more memorable than a standard telephone number. They also reply back to the consumer with your message or content within a matter of seconds.

Millions of mobile phones rest in pockets and purses around South Africa. They represent an immediate and convenient opportunity for South African businesses to encourage customers to participate in a promotion, make a micro-payment for goods or services and generate an additional revenue stream like never before using PRSMS.
