How it is done?
- Call Shop customers place calls to desired destinations from a phone booth or a soft phone on a PC in Internet Café
- The system makes sure that the call sender is authorized to use the requested service and identifies the phone booth or soft phone
- The platfrorm keeps track and charges the phone calls placed but the customer in the booth
- Upon completion of calls the Call Shop Operator presents the customer a bill for all calls made during the call session at the booth
- The system keeps track of all bills for later review and provides vital analytical and reporting information to the Call Shop/Internet Café owner
