London, UK, Vancouver, Canada, San Diego, USA, 21 February 2013 – Infobip, the world’s leading mobile services provider and neXva, a fully managed and hosted white label app store solution provider today announced their worldwide partnership.
Thanks to its global footprint and close cooperation with mobile operators, Infobip is now providing in addition to their direct carrier billing platform, a fully managed and hosted solution that includes an application store and content provided by neXva. This unique business model is providing new revenue streams to operators, new markets for content providers and easy “billing on phone” solution for end users.
“The mobile payment market is rapidly evolving from premium SMS to direct carrier billing. Thanks to our cGate platform, Mobile Operators will now be able to easily add this new payment technology in their portfolio. We now provide a full end-to-end billing platform, from “how to bill” to “what to bill”. Through our partnership with neXva, operators now can extend their offering beyond a robust mobile payment platform to include a branded mobile app store with top quality content. The result is a benefit to the carrier’s customers and a way for the carrier to increase their revenue” said Massimo Cristini, Infobip Managing Director North America
“We see great opportunity in emerging markets, where users are content hungry and operators need solutions to monetize and offer this content. This partnership between neXva, an innovative App Store platform provider and Infobip, a market leader in carrier grade mobile payment solution, was an obvious choice when considering the needs of these markets” said Brian J. Friedman, CEO of neXva.
This is not just a win-win situation where mobile operators are having new revenue streams and content providers are extending their market to the world. It’s about using the knowledge to push new technologies into emerging markets, bringing the changes closer and faster.
