If you need to provide payphone users with a Prepaid Card based alternative to coins we offer the Solitaire Phonecard.
Simple to use via our 0800 Freephone number* so no additional call costs on your telephone line, with Interactive Voice Response (IVR).
To use the card, clients simply scratch off the panel on the reverse to reveal a unique PIN, lift the handset, dial our Solitaire Phonecard Freephone number, the call is answered by our IVR system:-
“Please enter your Phonecard number...”
They then dial the PIN number from their card, if this is valid the IVR responds with:-
“You now have £5 please dial the number you wish to call…”
The call proceeds until they hang up, call credit is deducted during the call or the £5 has been used. (Call rates vary between Landline/Mobile and International numbers).
If credit remains on the card at each subsequent usage the IVR updates the client. E.g. “You now have £3.50 please dial the number you wish to call…”
Simple telephones connected to a telephone system can usually be programmed to access ONLY the Solitaire Payphones “Freephone” number so that users can only access the network using a Solitaire Prepaid Card.
These Solitaire Prepaid Cards also allow sites to offer rationed landline access to enable other users to gain access as once the £5 call credit has been used the call is disconnected.
*The Freephone number can be programmed as a Memory accessed number from all Solitaire 2000/2000A 6000/6000A and 6000 High Security Payphones to further simplify user access.
(Solitaire 6100/6100 High Security need remote access to Solitaire Payphone Management System).
(Magnetic Swipe element discontinued, memory button usage still possible on Solitaire 500).
Solitaire Phonecards have a face value of £5.00, available in packs of 10 off.
