ArmInfo. Beeline announced the launch of Simkomat - own self-service terminals for the sale of SIM cards, which was developed in Armenia jointly with Esay Pay. The first simcoms in Armenia will be installed in Yerevan.
As the press service of the company informs, Simkomat Beeline allows to purchase SIM-cards with the tariff plan Smart 1500 without the help of employees of the company, as well as make payments for communication services Beeline.
According to the source, SIM cards with this tariff plan in the sales and service offices are provided for 1,600 AMD, but through the Simkomat this tariff plan is sold for 1,000 AMD. The service is available to citizens of Armenia and other countries.
"Development of self-service and digital-channels does not stand still, and we have long sought ways to increase efficiency and reduce costs through digital devices. Thanks to the Simkomat subscribers in the 24/7 mode can purchase a SIM card Beeline. At the same time he conducts the entire procedure himself, which removes his dependence on the schedule of the sales and service offices. At the moment we are working on making SIM cards and paying for Beeline communication services through a non-cash method from Simkomat - so the user will not necessarily keep cash with him," said Beeline's Director General in Armenia, Andrey Pyatakhin.
The principle of the work of the SIM is the following: the user selects the option , the document type (passport or ID-card), installs the document in the reader. The Simkomat takes pictures of the client using the built-in camera and compares the photo in the passport/ID-card with the actual photo of the client. After acquainting himself with the subscription agreement, the client signs an electronic signature on a special field. Then the customer chooses the form of payment and pays the cost of the SIM- card, and the device issues a card, subscriber variant of the contract and a check (the subscriber contract can be sent to the user's email address). The process of formalizing the contract takes an average of about four minutes.
The Simkomat meets all the requirements of the Armenian legislation and thanks to the modern encryption system it provides reliable protection of the subscriber's personal data. It is impossible to get a SIM card with someone else's passport, because the system, comparing photos, will reveal a discrepancy and refuse to connect.
