Acision erweitert Mobile Messaging-Funktionen für Turkcell

READING, England, February 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Preisgekrönte, personalisierte Messaging-Plattform bietet Nutzern ein verbessertes Anwendungserlebnis mit erhöhter Messaging-Kontrolle

Das türkischen Telekommunikationsunternehmen Turkcell (NYSE:TKC, ISE: TCELL) wir die ausgezeichnete*, personalisierte Messaging Plattform Acision Message Plus einsetzen. Mithilfe der Plattform können Kunden von Turkcell innovative Messaging-Services erleben, die herkömmliche SMS-Funktionen mit neuen Features wie (Online) Message Archivierung, Message Delivery Control (kopieren/weiterleiten), Black und White Lists sowie automatischer SMS-Signierung aufwerten. So wird die Kundenzufriedenheit gesteigert und Turkcell kann sich besser über seine Services am wettbewerbsstarken Markt differenzieren.

Die Beliebtheit des Mobile Messaging hat ihr Höchstmaß allerdings noch nicht erreicht, was insbesondere daran liegt, dass erweiterte Messaging-Services auf den Markt gebracht wurden. Um die Lebensdauer von Textnachrichten zu steigern, suchen die Betreiber weltweit nach innovativen Wegen um SMS durch das Einführen von verbesserten Serviceleistungen zu bereichern. Die personalisierten Messaging-Services von Acision bieten neue Features, die den besonderen Anforderungen der unterschiedlichen Abonnentensegmente entsprechen. Laut Acision können personalisierte Messaging-Services die Einnahmen um bis zu 15% steigern.

"Nach unserer langjährigen und erfolgreichen Partnerschaft mit Acision, möchten wir auch weiterhin mit dem Mobile Messaging-Partner unseres Vertrauens zusammenarbeiten, besonders wegen der Erfahrung des Unternehmens in der Implementierung von mehrwertsteigernden Services", sagt Burak Sevilengul, der Chief Consumer Marketing Officer von Turkcell. "Durch die Ergänzung des personalisierten Messaging mit Acision Message Plus, können wir unseren Abonnenten nun ein verbesserte Messaging bieten, das das Nutzererlebnis optimiert und ihnen mehr Wahlmöglichkeiten bietet. Unsere Philosophie ist es, durch das Eingehen auf die individuellen Bedürfnisse unserer Kunden, deren Zufriedenheit zu steigern und dabei die Loyalität unserer Kunden zu festigen."

Die ersten Services werden einem Teil der insgesamt 35,1 Millionen Abonnenten von Turkcell in der Türkei zugänglich gemacht. Als Resultat der hochskalierbaren und hochleistungsfähigen Infrastruktur von Acision Message Plus kann Turkcell seine Messaging-Angebote weiterentwickeln und seinen Abonnenten in Zukunft neue, innovative Messaging-Services anbieten.

"In den letzten Jahren hat sich das Messaging-Verhalten der Verbraucher stark verändert; Nutzer versenden mehr Nachrichten, und erwarten bessere Leistungen. Sie wünschen  Services, die Reichweite und Zuverlässigkeit bieten, individuell anpassbar sowie einfach zu verwenden sind und besondere Bedürfnisse erfüllen können," erklärt Russell Grahame, SVP und GM von Acision. "Genauso wie konventionelle Voice- und E-Mail um Services wie gezielte Nachsendungen erweitert wurden, stellte das personalisierte Messaging von Acision ähnliche, funktionale Erweiterungen für SMS bereit, die sowohl für Smartphone- als auch für Feature Phone-Besitzer geeignet sind. Diese Erweiterungen ermöglichen Netzwerkbetreibern ihre Messaging-Services auch jenseits der Preisgestaltung hervorzuheben und auf diese Weise weiteren gebührenpflichtigen Datenverkehr zu erzeugen."

Acision Message Plus lässt sich leicht in die bereits existierende Acision SMSC-Infrastruktur von Turkcell integrieren. Die SMSC-Bereitstellung von Acision ist eine der größten in Europa. Die Plattform wird von der Acision Management Station (AMS), einem zentralisierten Managementsystem mit Reporting- und Analysetools unterstützt. So kann Turkcell die Serviceperformance und -nutzung überwachen und Services genau auf die Kundenbedürfnisse zuschneiden.

Jorgen Nilsson, Chief Executive von Acision kommentiert: "Durch Acision Message Plus besteht die reale Möglichkeit, eine verbessertes Messaging-Erlebnis für Kunden zu bieten, unabhängig davon welches Endgerät genutzt wird. Betreiber können so ihre Services profilieren."

*Acision und MTS wurden mit dem Global Text Messaging Innovation Award 2012 für die Implementierung von Acision Message Plus (SMS Pro) ausgezeichnet. Die nun im sechsten Jahr vergebenen Awards werden an innovative Projekte verliehen, an denen mindestens ein Telekommunikationsbetreiber und ein Anbieter beteiligt sind.

Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
One of the biggest challenges when developing connected devices is identifying user value and delivering it through successful user experiences. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kuniavsky, Principal Scientist, Innovation Services at PARC, described an IoT-specific approach to user experience design that combines approaches from interaction design, industrial design and service design to create experiences that go beyond simple connected gadgets to create lasting, multi-device experiences grounded in people's real needs and desires.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
"Matrix is an ambitious open standard and implementation that's set up to break down the fragmentation problems that exist in IP messaging and VoIP communication," explained John Woolf, Technical Evangelist at Matrix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies, will examine why IT must finally fulfill its role in support of its SBUs or face a new round of...
Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types. Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water, are pursuing SmartGrid initiatives that represent one of the more mature examples of SAE. We have s...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
Bit6 today issued a challenge to the technology community implementing Web Real Time Communication (WebRTC). To leap beyond WebRTC’s significant limitations and fully leverage its underlying value to accelerate innovation, application developers need to consider the entire communications ecosystem.
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...
