With the explosion in mobile phone technology you could be forgiven for thinking the days of traditional payphones are numbered, but not according to Nimans.
Demand for its exclusive Solitaire product range remains very healthy – with resellers urged to consider the multitude of locations where they are still required, from counter-top bars to hospitals and prisons. Payphones are also a good way for businesses to control internal call costs, further fuelling demand.
“Often resellers can overlook the many sales opportunities that still exist for traditional pay phones across a wide range of locations,” said Gary Redshaw from the distributor’s Purchasing team. “It may surprise them to realise that in an age of mobile communication demand for payphones remains consistently strong.”
Nimans stocks the Solitaire 2000 plug-and-play device, best selling 6000 model for secure areas along with a high security model which benefits from a robust steel casing.
Gary added: “The 6000 and 6000HS models can easily be adapted to work in Euro zone countries as they also benefit from programmable coin recognition.”
Nimans also stocks a wide range of hoods, cabinets and all-weather phones, as part of an extensive product range, as Gary concluded: “There will always be a need for payphones in environments that may lack mobile phone signals, batteries running down and also sites where mobiles are just not appropriate. Furthermore, in these cost conscious times, payphones are very effective in helping businesses control charges, as they can restrict access to only allow certain numbers; calls to head or branch offices for example. Payphones continue to represent excellent margin and revenue opportunities for our customers.”
Gary also highlighted how when selling a telephone system, dealers can offer the 6000 or 6000HS as an extension off the PBX to save on line rental.
