Avision, the Taiwan based company, has already confirmed its plans for establishing a network of 3,000 units for self-service copiers throughout India. This will be done through tie-ups with several organizations en route towards ushering in more affordable solutions for printing as far as Indian consumers are concerned. Avision has been collaborating with several government entities for a long time now along with banks and its new devices will be integrating options for mobile payments which will enable users to pay digitally for their printouts as well.
The company’s partners will be helping in establishing printers across various locations where users can easily take prints and copy while paying online with multiple UPI backed mobile wallets. The printers can be provided at multiple zones including government offices, cafes, campuses of schools and colleges and branches of banks. Locations will be displayed on a mobile app. The pricing for the devices has not been released by the company as of yet. However, it will be collaborating on a model for revenue-sharing with its partners.
The device enables greater security and convenience with regard to accessing and paying for services. It also enables the lowering of costs for business owners since personnel will no longer be required for operating the same, according to the company.
