Unified Signal / DataJack, Inc. Announces Deployment of First-of-Kind Multi Carrier Share Plan Billing Suite
Kirkland, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 09/30/14 – Unified Signal / DataJack, Inc. (OTCQB: DJAK)), a leading MVNE (Mobile Virtual Network Enabler) in the telecommunications industry, today announced that it has launched new billing functionality to its 17 MVNO clients. This first-of-kind functionality allows clients using the Unified Signal software billing enablement suite to offer their respective customer groups share plans but with a very major differentiator. Customers can now bundle multiple wireless carriers on one bill and share data amongst a group of people regardless of what carrier they are on."
Unified Signal's Chief Executive Officer, Paris Holt, stated, "The trend in the wireless industry is family shares plans. We took this concept and greatly expanded on it. With our new code update that was released last week, our clients can now create and launch shares plans that span multiple inter-personal groups, including families, friends, and businesses. Each of these social/business circles had different functional requirements that we had to code to. Even more significant was our ability to offer this capability across multiple carrier networks within a single group share plan. This is the first time this cross functionality has been accomplished anywhere in the world and it was not an easy task and we are very excited with the end result. This new functionality will provide our MVNO clients with higher profit margins, longer subscriber life cycles, and most importantly, a clear differentiator in the marketplace. It’s important for us to remain on the cutting edge of innovation and with the share plan functionality, I believe we are creating a new standard in the wireless resale industry, which in the end benefits both consumers and MVNOs”
Andrew Yang, Unified Signal’s Director of Carrier Operations, states, "We knew we wanted to enable our clients to offer share plans, but our team wanted a chance to create an industry first. It was not an easy road, but it was worth the 5 months of development work to recode all of our billing and rating procedures to support the new functionality. This cross carrier share strategy will be appealing to businesses as well as residential consumers that can now share plans with friends as well as family members regardless of the carrier network that their phone supports. Groups of people can now share usage across multiple carrier networks, all bundled on one billing account. Since notifying our clients of our initial plans and subsequent progress, the overall response has been extremely positive. As we move from beta testing to our full production launch over the next couple of weeks, our clients can now offer something new and compelling to consumers that has never been done before and our development team has no plans on slowing down. We will be launching more exciting and equally as innovative feature enhancements to the billing system in the months to come.
