Why Mobile Operators Are Excited About Bubbly
Proven technology and infrastructure
Bubble Motion’s underlying technology platform has long been in operation across a global footprint of existing operators. In fact, more than 100 million individuals have exchanged more than 1 billion bubble messages across the existing network. Bubbly has come about by creating a social messaging service on top of existing infrastructure, leveraging the massive consumer trends around sharing and connecting that are prevalent on the Web.
Giving customers what they want
There is no denying the hunger consumers have to connect with their world. Operators have recognized that delivering great customer experiences helps build long lasting (and profitable) relationships with loyal customers.
Declining revenue per subscriber (ARPU) is a reality for many operators in fiercely competitive markets (who isn’t?), and hence the importance of value added services (VAS) revenue for telecom operators. By offering features that drive phone usage (text and voice), operators are able to use Bubble Motion to drive new sources of revenues, while leveraging existing infrastructure investements that would be otherwise untapped.
Already deployed with major carriers, Bubble Motion has the technology and expertise to painlessly install and support the Bubbly infrastructure with you. Best of all, there are no client applications required for your customer-base, no special plans, no sign-up. For users it’s plug-and-play.
Minimal investment required
Leverage existing infrastructure investments (voice circuits, SMSC, billing systems).
Flexible deployment options
Deployed or centrally hosted options available for fast time-to-market.
