This case study describes improvements in the process of voucher distribution using VISIONTEK EVD Server Software which replaced the existing physical voucher distribution. The VISIONTEK Server Software solution offers online distribution of PINs anytime anywhere, through Point of Sale (PoS) terminals, without the need for scratch cards.
The Service Provider is a pioneer of mobile telecommunications in the Middle East and now a major player on the African continent. Also, a leading wireless services provider with a commercial presence in 24 countries across the Middle East and Africa with over 15,000 employees providing a comprehensive range of mobile voice and data services to 69.5 million active individual and business customers.
The Service Provider, prior to the implementation of VISIONTEK EVD Solution, used to print and store scratch cards of multiple denominations. Service Provider then used to transfer the scratch cards to distributors, based on their respective credit availability. The cards were then, in-turn, transferred to sub-distributors/ retailers. The retailer would then sell the scratch cards and update the same to service provider manually through a reverse chain.
The objective of implementing the VISIONTEK EVD Solution application was to simplify the process of distribution by increasing the availability of vouchers to distributors / retailers while at the same time reducing financial risk to the Service Provider.
VISIONTEK EVD is a simplified solution to purchase Prepaid Mobile Top-Ups and Recharge Vouchers through POS terminals, deployed at the retailer’s desk. The application is designed and developed to overcome the problems associated with the distribution of physical voucher.
Electronic Voucher Distribution is a real-time software solution that provides retailers’ with an ability to recharge customer accounts by the specified amount, at any time anywhere. Through this method of top-up, the operator can maintain control over the top-up denominations while still benefiting from an electronic distribution system.
VISIONTEK EVD application offers superior commission structure by giving individual retailer commission, distributor commission, and denomination specific commissions. The Vast number of reports helps to prepare improved MIS and decision making for Top Management.
