NT.Payments Extends the Boundaries

Dear partners!

Ras al-Khaimah is the oldest emirate in the UAE, with its rich nature, picturesque mountains, hot springs and mild weather. A favorable climate, fertile soil and rich water resources have enabled the emirate to develop agriculture: to grow fruits and vegetables, and to rear cattle and poultry. Thanks to its unique nature, a great number of tourists visit the emirate each year to enjoy second-to-none sceneries and sights. Our company has also decided to settle down in this northern region of the country. 


30 NT.Payments payment kiosks have been already installed in the territory of Ras al-Khaimah. Our employees are working to increase this number many-fold. We are planning to launch other 300 terminals in the nearest future. 


Ras al-Khaimah is the most remote emirate, and we have decided to open a small local office there for the employees of the commercial, the technical and the financial departments, who will solve the arisen issues and work on region development on site. 


Today, the NT.Payments brand is becoming more and more recognizable in the United Arab Emirates. Entering new territories allows to enlarge the network of installed terminals and to increase the number of potential customers of our payment system, which will allow to multiply the profitability of our terminals and to make the waiting list for kiosks move.

The First batch of Combo-Kiosks in Abu Dhabi

Dear partners! 

All we were waiting for arrival of the first batch of combo-kiosks at the UAE. This new multipurpose product has already gained the affection of both advertisers and landlords who are keen to present a new service in their sales points. Today, we are happy to inform you that the first 50 combo-kiosks has arrived at Abu Dhabi port. 


Together with the employees of the logistics company our specialists gently unloaded the combo-kiosks from containers, counted them and checked integrity of each machine. The work was complex and painstaking because each combo-kiosk weights 230 kilograms. In comparison, an NT.Payments terminal weights just 135 kilos. 


Now all combo-kiosks are stored in the company’s warehouse, where the Technical Department specialists have already started setting up and preparing them for installation. The combo-kiosks will soon be installed in the most popular and visited places of the UAE. In such places, due to versatility, they will make a good profit both for the company and for franchise owners. 


Arrival of the first batch is an exciting event for the company and partners. A new product Taunigma-Combo impresses with its capabilities and functionality. 42-inch advertising display is ideal for all types and formats of advertisements. The main touchscreen display for making payments is comfortably angled for a user. 

We congratulate partners whose combo-kiosks arrived within the first batch. Follow the news of our company and be the first to know of all details of installation!

Natalia Kvasnaya: “Marketing makes a brand name and encourage positive attitude towards a company”

Dear partners! 

Marketing is an essential component of any business. It improves brand recognition in the market, creates a competitive edge for a company and boosts the loyalty of clients. Rapid development of payment and advertising business increasingly demands new approaches, solutions and fresh ideas to implement marketing projects. So we decided to tell you how our company remains strong in the face of challenges imposed by the modern market. We talked about specifics of work, plans and projects with Natalia Kvasnaya, the marketing manager of   the company. 


Interviewer: Natalia, tell us, please, why did you become a marketing manager?

Natalia: Marketing is an interesting and dynamic area of activity. The most creative marketing projects are associated with attracting core audience to study the attitude to a new trademark, product or service. When I was a student, I was interested in this field. During the practical training in the university we conducted various public opinion surveys. It was interesting for me to develop marketing tools and observe their operation, for example, research customer preferences when selecting one product or other, analyze what customers are guided and which factors influence their choice. That is why I still work and develop in this field. Something is always going on here. New concepts, I want to put into practice, are emerging. 

I.: What are the main duties of a marketing manager? 

N.: My major task is to ensure sustainable operation and development of our company in a competitive environment as well as to create proposals for enhancing efficiency of work with partners and agents. It includes preparation of corporate presentations, moderation of presentations given by our speakers, verification of promotional information created by our partners, preparation of printed advertising materials for domestic and international market, creation of videos for the official YouTube channel as well as organization of marketing events for the partners and clients. All these marketing tools offer now a highly effective way to attract new clients and promote sales increases.

I.: Natalia, who helps you in implementing your projects? 

N.: Everything depends on tasks set and projects planned. I have many subcontractors that help us to bring all our ideas to life. These are designers, artists, speakers, animation artists and translators. Besides, the Investor Relations Department is an excellent team. We often brainstorm to generate new ideas. I also actively cooperate with the Commercial Department and the specialists of the Advertising Department because they are aware of the situation in the local market as they are in this environment every day.


I.: How do you build rapport with subcontractors? 

N.: We as of today have well-established base of specialists with whom we have long cooperated. If we have a new task, we search for outsourcing specialists on dedicated resources. This is a quite painstaking process. Seemingly, in the usual sense, a designer is a person who design, draw and paint, but there is a vast variety of design types. For instance, a design of our new product, combo-kiosk, was created be several specialists. The first one created an industrial design and drew it in special graphics software. Another designer developed an external view of a kiosk that is to say how it will finally look, which logos and where will be sticked.

I.: What are specific aspects of work with designers? 

N.: Signing an agreement and leaning the privacy policy as well as developing a specification, in which we give as full description of a final product we would like to see as possible, are prerequisites for our cooperation.

I.: Designers are creative individuals. Is it difficult to find common ground with them? 

N.: When working with designers, like with any other people, to find common ground is the main thing. There are some specialists with whom I have worked for quite a long time, so I am aware of nuances of their personality, that is why I try to smooth things over when communicating with them. When creating new design, we always consider professional opinion. They know better how to draw something, what colors to use or how to arrange elements in order to combine them perfectly.


I.: For whom do you create marketing materials? 

N.: The core audience for our marketing materials is users of our payment system, landlords, advertisers, as well as the company’s partners and agents.

I.: Natalia, is there any difference in the style of materials for local and external markets? 

N.: Of course. The Emirates is a multinational country, so multilingualism is a principle difference. For the local market, we make marketing materials to meet the needs of clients, landlords and service providers, so we are mainly oriented at Arabic. However, in order to reach a wider audience, we translate our materials into Urdu and Hindi. With respect to materials for international market, they are created for the partners and agents. These materials include the printed ones and videos that help our investors to increase sales and find new clients.

I.: What are the projects you are working on now? 

N.: At the moment, our top priority task is to update marketing presentations for the partners and clients. On numerous requests of the management company employees, we are also preparing catalogs that contains detailed information for each product. There are some other interesting projects at the preparatory stage, but we will keep them secret for now.


I.: Natalia, what do you consider important aspects in your work? 

N.: The result, first and foremost. It is great pleasure to see that my work brings positive results. It is equally important to develop professional skills. During my stay with the company, I have faced a lot of tasks. They were challenging and exciting.

I.: Do you think sales success depends on well-publicized brand name? 

N.: In the modern world, branding plays a fundamental role as it presents long-term investment. Even the most famous brands cannot simply rest on their laurels, they keep on testing new products, improve quality and foster loyalty of the audience in different ways. In this regard, our company is not an exception. We try to inform about our activities and prospects of cooperation with our company, hold promotions and other marketing events for the company’s partners and clients. As a result, people want to know about us more, they ask questions and look for cooperation.


I.: Natalia, to conclude, tell us what are the main qualities of a marketing manager from your point of view? What should she know and be able to?

N.: I think, a successful marketing manager should be able to put a company’s marketing strategy into life, implement tasks set and find creative solutions. Ability to work in a team is also important. She should be open to new knowledge and keen on professional development. Any manager is a boss, so she should clearly understand goals and objectives, and the corporate strategy. From my point of view, a marketing manager is a mentor who evokes the “patriotic spirit” in other employees, the clients and partners of the company. It is marketing that builds a brand, maintains a positive attitude towards a company on behalf of all participants of the process, namely, employees, landlords, advertisers and customers.

I.: Natalia, thank you for the pleasant conversation. Today, thanks to you, we learnt more about creation of marketing materials that help our company to remain recognizable and competitive in the market.

Geant is a popular hypermarket chain in the UAE that offers a lot of high-quality goods at low prices to its customers. Here you can always find discounts and attractive offers.

It attracts residents and visitors of the Emirates with its astonishing architecture and design. The buildings of the Ibn Battuta Mall are made in the style of countries visited by the merchant when travelling. There are always a lot of people here.

When the customer flow was maximum, our employees were standing near the terminals installed in Geant and meeting people who wanted to recharge an account. They assisted the clients in making payments, asked their opinion about our kiosks. Besides, the specialists of the company presented the services of the NT.Payments system to each customer.


Such promotions give a great opportunity to receive feedback. By getting closer to customers, we will be able to timely identify their needs and improve our services. Increasing number of loyal customers and growing bond of trust to NT.Payments terminals will definitely enhance income from the kiosks operation.

A day in the life of a commercial department employee

Dear partners!

One of the main requirements for achieving high profitability from a terminal is to choose the installation site wisely. That is why the main challenge for the Kiosk IT Systems Trading LLC sales managers is to look for popular and profitable installation sites for NT.Payments terminals, control the work of the installed terminals and relocate them to more advantageous places. 

In a new edition of our blog, we decided to tell how our sales managers solve such problems and what kind of situations they face in the course of work. 

Today, Sibghatullah Jan, a sales manager, will tell us about his job. Every day he explores the neighbourhoods of the Abu Dhabi emirate in order to find more advantageous locations to install the NT.Payments kiosks. 


As a rule, the morning of a commercial department employee starts with planning for the day, in particular, monitoring the work of already installed kiosks, drafting the travelling plan, and conducting phone negotiations with lessors. 


Before going to the first destination, Sibghatullah asks the head of the department to approve the plan for the day, collects the documents and receipts to repay the lessors. Having prepared all the necessary equipment, we set out. 

The first destination is a security systems store. We have recently installed an NT.Payments kiosk here. “The technical department staff has already connected it to the network and configured. Now we need to sign an installation agreement with the lessor to settle everything,” explains Sibghatullah. The man at the counter is happy to see us, he tells us about the first days of the terminal’s work and signs the required documents necessary for further cooperation. 


According to Sibghatullah, a commercial department employee can visit up to 9 locations in a day depending on the installation site, the traffic and sociability demonstrated by the shop’s owner. 

We move to our next stop enjoying the modern urban architecture on the way and in 20 minutes we reach a relatively small mobile phone shop. Here our objective is to pay the lessor a 3-month fee for the payment kiosk lease. The store’s owner gives us a friendly greeting, informs us about the terminal’s work, and expresses sincere gratitude for the cooperation and the provided additional service. 


After giving a receipt to the owner and sealing the gesture of mutual gratitude with a handshake, we set off to the next stop. 

“Tomorrow I will be searching for new places where there are no payment kiosks yet. I will be exploring the neighbourhood near the harbour. By the way, we are passing the place as we speak. It is a good neighbourhood with a lot of residential houses and stores”, says Sibghatullah pointing out to the right side of the street. 


We are approaching the next mobile phone shop. (As you might have noticed, these sales retail locations are quite popular in the UAE. The locals like to communicate. That is why our employees install terminals in such shops). Here our objective is to negotiate for the installation of an NT.Payments terminal with the owner. The shop’s owner is listening attentively, asking us about the work, clients, services and advantages of our kiosk. Finally, a professional approach and communicative skills allowed Sibghatullah to close the deal. All there is to do now is to bring the terminal to the location and sign the necessary documents. 


“While negotiating it is important to take into account the type of a person in front of you and his mood. This helps to find the words to make the offer more appealing and understand whether the interlocutor is inclined to communicate”, shares Sibghatullah. 

It is not the last location yet. After having a look at the to-do list, we define the next location. Today we need to visit 6 more stores to sign the settlement agreements with the lessors in order to install the kiosks at their stores and provide them with the receipts. 


Getting from one location to another, we did not notice that the working day has come to an end. Today was a productive day: we have paid to the lessors, signed all the documents, chosen a new favourable installation site and approved the plan for tomorrow. We get back to the office. 


It is 6 p.m. but usually, the working day in the commercial department ends much later. As sales managers are always on the road looking for suitable advantageous locations, meeting lessors, signing agreements and installing kiosks. All the above-mentioned steps are taken to install an NT.Payments terminal in an advantageous place and achieve high profitability to the owner. 

Follow the new and you will be able to learn a lot about the life and work of our company’s employees. There are more of interesting stories to come.
