Kcell Kazakhstan goes Digital
with Azimut’s
SIM Dispensing Solution



Kcell wanted to provide a safe, convenient and fast way to provide customers the convenience of self-service, particularly as the unprecedented disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic. These self-service kiosks provide customers the ability to carry out a number of crucial user journeys including:


  1. SIM Replacement:

    To replace a lost SIM card, select the appropriate option on the main page, then enter your mobile number, scan your ID and have your photo verified. If the number is registered in your name and all the registration data match those in the system, the kiosk will issue a new SIM card after the SIM replacement fee has been deducted from your phone account.


  2. Top Up:

    Select Top-Up and enter the phone number and top-up amount. Make a payment via the POS terminal. Topping up a cell phone is free of any extra charge.


  3. New SIM:

    When you select New SIM, you will be prompted to pick a cell phone plan and pay the cost of a new SIM card via the POS terminal. Once the payment is made, your receipt will appear on the screen and the kiosk will issue a SIM card. Upon request, receipts can be sent to your email address.


  4. e-SIM:

    To get an eSIM, you will need to undergo an ID and photo verification process, just like you would do for the SIM Replacement option. Then you will see a QR code on the screen. Scan the code and eSIM will be automatically downloaded to your phone. The cost of eSIM will be deducted from your cell phone account.
