Payphones With Wi-Fi
Posted on 13/12/2012
The UK’s first-ever payphones, that feature built-in Wi-Fi hot-spots have been exclusively launched by Nimans, offering resellers up to 40% recurring revenue.
In a major breakthrough, the popular Solitaire 6000HS model has been injected with additional functionality to create payphones with added power – as part of a unique all-in-one solution.
Pubs, restaurants, universities, hospitals, airports, railways stations, caravan sites and golf clubs are some of the many locations, resellers can target. The units boast up to a 200m range, 25 concurrent user capacity and an initial free 15 minutes internet usage.
Importantly, they are also fully complaint with EU regulations for public Wi-Fi concerning security and criminality, with all usage automatically logged for 12 months.
“There’s nothing else like this on the market,” explained Andy Winfield, Purchasing Director at Nimans. “The units are very easy to install with no programming or complicated set-up. They instantly recognise the Solitaire Payphone network and can be linked to the home page of any end user website for a more tailored service.”
Payments can be made via credit and debit cards or prepaid vouchers bought on-site. An LCD cash record display monitors takings from traditional payphone calls whilst remote diagnostics ensures convenient maintenance.
The Wi-Fi innovation has a trade price of £429, just £129 more than the standard model. Resellers enjoy 40% commission on usage that can be split with their own customers if preferred.
Andy concluded: “This new model represents a quantum leap forward, offering the convenience of internet access and the traditional benefits of payphone calls made in a safe and controlled way, such as preventing mis-use from staff running up costly bills. There’s huge margins and on-going revenue potential for resellers. This really is a hot product in more ways than one. It’s a very compelling telephone system bolt-on or a powerful standalone solution. ”
Resellers can also bundle the Solitaire 6000HS Wi-Fi hot-spot payphone with a broadband line from Nimans, for added convenience.
