Instant Update of Transactional Data to Wireless Standard Streamlines Sales, Reduces Errors, and Ensures Commissions Reconciliation Accuracy for Dealers
New York, NY – June 24, 2014 – B2B Soft, a business-to-business software company specializing in retail management for the wireless/cellular retail industry, is pleased to announce a new integration of its Wireless Standard Retail Management Platform with Sprint’s services. The new feature significantly simplifies transactional data entry into the Wireless Standard Platform, saving valuable time during the sales process by eliminating multiple data entry and its errors while also ensuring accurate commissions reconciliation.
The time it takes to service customers during the sales and device activation processes is a major problem for wireless retailers and carriers. Entering and re-entering data into multiple systems for activations and sales is time consuming, inefficient, and error prone. It frustrates customers and sales staff, and impinges on a retailer’s bottom line. Reducing wait times by streamlining transactions at the point of sale improves customer satisfaction and increases store efficiency and sales.
B2B Soft’s new integration with Sprint solves the problem by eliminating the necessity for laborious data entry, streamlining the sales process and significantly reducing transaction times. With the integration, once device activation has taken place at Sprint’s activation platform, dealers are able to obtain all transactional data from the Sprint system simply by entering the customer’s mobile number. The transactional data is automatically updated and instantly converted to Customer, Activation and Commissions records in Wireless Standard and is then ready and available in the shopping cart for checkout. The service supports activations, handset upgrades and feature add ons.
“Instant update of transactional data from Sprint into Wireless Standard makes life a lot easier for retailers, their sales teams and their commissions departments,” says Don Rossi, B2B Soft’s VP of Sales and Marketing. “Having all product, commissions, and customer information instantly updated and available at checkout eliminates data re-entry and ensures completely automated and accurate commissions reconciliation. It’s a significant savings in time and money.”
“B2B Soft’s integration solves the number one problem plaguing carriers and their dealers—which is the time it takes to service customers,” says Steve Orlov, B2B Soft’s Executive VP of Product Strategy. “Providing a faster, seamless and better customer service experience is beneficial for customers, dealers and carriers. The integration also solves the problem of human error and fraud resulting from unnecessary data entry which can have a considerable impact on the bottom line. B2B Soft is constantly striving to solve wireless retail’s most pressing problems with innovative technology, and carriers and dealers worldwide rely on us to do just that.”
Adopted by more than 6,000 wireless dealers and master agents as the industry’s premiere Point-of-Sale solution, B2B Soft’s Wireless Standard provides operators with seamless transactions, streamlined store operations, inventory control, loss prevention, resource management, integrated payment solutions and powerful business intelligence.
