Aadharshila’s Foray Into Energy Sector for Electricity Billing in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar
BluPrints printers manufactured and provided by Aadharshila Mobility Solutions facilitated an enhanced payment collection process for Essel Vidyut Vitaran Pvt. Ltd. and Purvanchal Vidyut Vitran Nigam Ltd. by allowing them to implement on-the-spot customer payments. Essel Vidyut Vitaran Pvt. Ltd and Purvanchal Vidyut Vitran Nigam Ltd. provide utilities services to urban and rural areas in Bihar and U.P. respectively, and employ agents to go door-to-door to collect payments from customers. Trained agents use Android machines to create applications that calculate payment amounts and are then paired to our BluPrints Eco Model 2-inch Bluetooth printers. Agents on the ground input customer payments into the Andriod application that are immediately updated on the server for the company’s records. Then the agent prints a receipt using the Aadharshila wireless handheld printers that serves as the customer’s record of the transaction. The combination of the printer and the Android application thus acts as a POS system that improves record keeping for the customer as well as the company. This project was tremendously successful as it exponentially increased the number on-the-spot collections, provided real time information on collections and created a database of transactions that can be analyzed for customer payment patterns. Our arrangement with Essel Vidyut Vitaran Pvt. Ltd. and Purvanchal Vidyut Vitran Nigam Ltd. helped to improve their billing capacity by allowing for immediate monetary gain and eliminating issues arising from miscommunication regarding customers’ late payments.
