DIMOCO´s and Juniper´s White Paper: Direct Carrier Billing benefits for the Network Operators

140508 DIMOCO Trend Update-01

Direct carrier billing provides network operators with the opportunity to retain a foothold in the content value chain.

By leveraging the billing relationship, the MNO is in a position to extract additional value from the customer and also develop double-sided revenues through partnerships with players elsewhere in the value chain.

 

That is why we believe that direct carrier billing remains a far more attractive revenue proposition for network operators, since the infrastructure (ie the billing relationship) is already in place and there is a widespread acceptance of remote payment via the mobile handset.

mobile ticketing takes off-part 2

140826 Guest blogger Alexander Birnkammerer-01

 

After a couple of weeks of testing, the clever mobile user is ready to face new challenges. This time the “tastiest morsel” of the information apps is to be tried and tested: mobile ticketing’s supreme discipline, namely purchasing tickets for mass transport.

 

The day draws near, the problem is obvious: without a valid ticket, bus and rail are off limits. Thanks to information and ticket recommendation, the right fare is quickly found. That leaves just one hurdle to cross in most regions. Registration is required. Logical – the internet is still young, it’s impossible for everyone to have their own data.

 

Name and address are easy, bank details thanks to SEPA a bit trickier. Ticket inspectors still want to be shown ID; credit card or similar; these are also easily entered. Create a password and presto! All done.

After that everything happens very fast. Select ticket, confirm the purchase using your password , and moments later a genuine electronic ticket complete with bar code and validity information lands on your device.

 

The procedure is a trifle more elegant in regions offering registration-free ticketing. Here the customer simply selects the ticket on the app, and the system automatically identifies the carrier and customer’s number via mobile operator billing, and bills the amount to the cell phone invoice.

In place of an ID card, the device information and MSISDN act as the control medium.

 

This is already possible with the easy.GO app, which is available in the German transportation network MDV and the Rhein Sieg (VRS) linked transport system.

The registration-free option provided by easy.GO is extremely popular with mass transportation customers. Of course – not everyone is prepared to disclose sensitive personal data just to purchase a bus ticket! The transportation company is rewarded with an explosion in the numbers of passengers. Over 80% of regular customers use the service for approx. 3.5 million route enquiries. Annual organic growth in ticket sales is between 30-50% and surges when supported by marketing campaigns. Extremely satisfying from the business point of view, too, as the increase is sustained.

DIMOCO Spain Mobile Operator Payment Special

140313 DIMOCO country update-01

 

 

With it´s 4th country special DIMOCO shows companies once again the potential of billing digital content via direct carrier billing. This time, the mobile operator payment and messaging provider analyses Spain. With 50 million mobile subscribers, a 54.5% smartphone penetration rate and the given opportunities in billing digital content via the mobile network operators’ bill, digital content providers can take advantage of an easy payment method with an enormous reach. Via DIMOCO, direct carrier billing for mobile and web one-off as well as subscription services for digital content up to a tariff of 30 euros is available. According to pwc, the Spanish digital content publishing, video, music and games sector will increase dramatically over the next few years.

 

“We are one of the leading mobile operator payment and messaging providers in Europe. Analyzing the markets to show digital content providers their enormous potential was just another logical step for us,” says Gerald Tauchner, DIMOCO President and CEO, explaining the reasons for his fourth country special. He adds: “In Spain we already provide direct carrier billing with Orange, Movistar and Vodafone. What else could be more attractive for content providers if they want to increase their conversion rate?”

Thank you for another great idate

140911 iDate Martin Thor

 

For the 39th time in a row, the iDate conference in Cologne/Germany was yet another successful networking event for companies in the dating industry.
With a combination of speed-networking, seminars and intense discussion rounds – DIMOCO participated not only as a sponsor, but also in the discussion panel on payment methods.

 

 

The focus of this year’s payment panel was primarily on “alternative payment methods” as well as how companies in the online dating industry can maximize their conversion rate. The panel was moderated by Martin Thor (Sales Account Manager, DIMOCO) instead of Jakob Kleinsasser.

DIMOCO is looking forward to next year’s iDate in Las Vegas!
