Samsung partners Innoviti on BEAM to provide extra margin for mainline mobile dealers on EMI Transactions
Innoviti Payment Solutions, leading provider of smart payment solutions today announced a pioneering scheme, Brand EMI Acceleration Mission (BEAM) on its smart marketing app, G.E.N.I.E. This novel feature enables mainline mobile dealers earn extra margins on every Brand EMI transaction on Innoviti’s G.E.N.I.E range of payment terminals. The COVID-19 pandemic has triggered a significant move from offline to online, affecting the businesses of mainline mobile and consumer durable dealers. With G.E.N.I.E, Innoviti has been encouraging consumers to return to their neighborhood mainline retail stores for their mobile phones and durables purchases by offering them attractive instant cashback using GENIE coupons in addition to all the benefits like zero-cost EMIs, etc. that online sites offer to them.
Keeping the interests of mobile dealer community who have been facing the onslaught from online, Innoviti in partnership with leading mobile and durables brands introduced BEAM to enable them to earn more profits. In addition to fueling the dealer’s growth by attracting more walk-ins for them, enabling more conversions, Innoviti is now helping merchants earn extra margins on every Brand EMI sale they do on Innoviti’s GENIE terminals thereby helping them make more profits.
BEAM enables mainline mobile dealers to get sponsored by leading mobile brands such as Samsung. Under this arrangement, the dealer who gets sponsored by Samsung can earn an extra 1.5% margin on every Samsung product they sell using Brand EMI, leading to a stronger relationship between the dealer and the brand. Not only this, BEAM also enables the dealers to earn an extra 1% margin on the Brand EMI transaction done for products of any other mobile or durables brands that have partnered with Innoviti for this initiative.
“Mainline mobile dealers provide the touch, feel and trust to consumers when they are selecting their electronic products. They educate them, guide them. However, at the end they lose the consumer to Online just because there is a better deal available there. Since its launch, GENIE is empowering mainline mobile dealers to successfully win back the customers they lost to Online. BEAM scheme is yet another value-add brought in partnership with leading brands to help the mainline mobile dealer earn more profits on every Brand EMI sale they make of our partner brands on their GENIE terminals.
We believe that packed with unique offerings such as BEAM, GENIE solves real-world problems of mainline dealers in a conclusive manner by offering them extra margins and unique advantages. We hope that this spirited initiative will be highly rewarding to them in the long run.” – said Mr. Prasad Sonavane, Chief Revenue Office – Partnerships & Alliances.
