Neil_kitcher Guest Post: IP transit just another data-day activity for MNOs

by Neil Kitcher, CMO with RTX

Although international voice traffic continues to grow, wholesale margins are declining fast in an intensely competitive sector. Just look at Colt back in May [2014], announcing it was to withdraw 85 per cent of its carrier voice contracts. Maximising revenues from core telecoms services – voice, SMS and data – is a priority. Wholesale carriers and major telcos have been utilising wholesale exchanges for voice and data for years, opening up traffic routes to new geographies and enabling them to sell unused capacity. It is no surprise that they are now identifying ways to take advantage of one of their most prized commodities, data, through the exchange of capacity in their fibre networks. Continue reading

devika's photo is in the post Guest Post: 2 good reasons why retailers have an app

by Devika Girish, who works in marketing with MobStac

Going by the number of success stories around retail apps, there is evidently a lot to lose out on if brands are to shunt away apps. The key to success here lies in identifying the retailer’s target group of users, creating apps that work well for them, and continually refining and reinventing mobile experiences to profitably retain those users. However, it doesn’t make sense to create a mobile app if a retailer has just started off with the retail business. App development should ideally come into the picture after a retailer have got a customerbase to cater to. Many retailers struggle to take a call on whether they should create an app of their own or tap into an existing platform.A retailer need to consider the retailer’s target audience and brand while choosing between them. Here are two points that will help a retailer design and implement a retail app in the most effective way possible. Continue reading

plouffe- uber's latest hiring What London cabbies need is better apps

As Uber hires yet another political heavyweight to back its cause

Here at GoMo Towers, we can’t help but think that what London cabbies really need in their fight against the fast-growing Uber mobile app is better technology. Rather than legal victories or greater political protection. In a sign of the way things are going, the folks at Uber have hired another political heavyweight in the shape of David Plouffe. An American, he is widely accredited with helping Barack Obama being elected US President not once but twice. Uber is, of course, fighting a global battle and what happens in the USA will undoubtedly affect Europe, for example. We can’t help but think that what London cabbies [taxi drivers] really need, however, is better technology in their apps. Continue reading
