Output devices that can be used on the Ice-Cloud system include: Integrated GPRS POS with screen, keypad and high-speed thermal printer; JAVA/GPRS cellphone or PC with GPRS modem or permanent Internet connection.
The Ice-Cloud prepaid logistics and distribution point of sale solution is the cellular industry's premier distribution solution. Completely web-based, Ice-Cloud provides real-time cellular POS and CRM capabilities with tracking features for SIMs/IMEIs; accounting features and other various features, designed to help cellular retailers, prepaid electricity vendors, wholesalers, and CRM agents better manage their businesses. Information relating to each transaction is accounted for by the system down to the level of voucher type, value, code, salesperson, time, date and POS device and all this info is available on-line. Ice-Cloud prepaid on demand does not require an investment in prepaid card inventory by the retailer. All PIN purchases are "on demand" and processed right then and there at the point of sale. Retailers simply buy what they sell – period. No more excess cards. No more having too many of an unpopular prepaid card.
