Bosch security systems a leader in electronic protection industry always look forward to helping their customers in every way they can. A system that can be flexible enough to entertain all customers and allow the creation of custom price plans suitable for everyone was a challenge.
Bosch came across Porthos platform which had a solution to all of their problems. Bosch provided their own custom URL on which white-labeled solution of Porthos was deployed with having Bosch logo and information. Today 300+ customers for Bosch use Porthos and manage their day to day activities.
Bosch security systems have quite a good number of resellers through which they sell security devices. For all of their security devices, they have pre-installed SIMs/CDMA’s in them.
Now for each customer to have its own login and competitive prices for each operator was a big challenge. They offer the same services for each customer and therefore every customer needs visibility and spend the same amount of money for each device.
ZIN Technologies offered Bosch Security Systems option of price plan creation ranging from unbundled to unlimited using Porthos with which they can create custom price plan for all desired needs. Now their customers can log in to their individual accounts and see the usage incurred by their devices.
They also can perform all provisioning actions on their devices by themselves. A predefined custom set of price plans are loaded onto the contract of each customer.
