LogicaCMG wins multimillion Euro Next Generation messaging contract with HTmobile

News

LogicaCMG today announced that it has won a multi million Euro contract with HTmobile of Croatia to supply enhanced interactive messaging services. The LogicaCMG solution will be based on the company's all-IP Next Generation messaging solution.

The LogicaCMG architecture enables HTmobile to share common management, provisioning and network interfaces across different service bearers to ensure optimum cost efficiency of its messaging infrastructure by maintaining low operational costs and capital expenditure. This architecture also provides the flexibility, features and framework components for HTmobile to evolve its service portfolio to include richer and more interactive messaging services, such as SMS voting and polling. The solution allows for unparalleled capacity growth while ensuring zero downtime for revenue generating messaging services. 

The Interactive Messaging Server gives subscribers fast access via one code (e.g. *100#) to a series of interactive menus, where they can easily select premium content or self-care menus. This enables HTmobile to offer self-care applications to their customers, while at the same time increasing Average Revenue Per User by making it easier for subscribers to access premium SMS content.

Georg Muendl, CMO, HTmobile, said: "We have a strong, ongoing relationship with LogicaCMG and it was the obvious choice when we decided to implement a Next Generation messaging platform. LogicaCMG's technical expertise and support will be vital as we roll out enhanced messaging services to our customers whilst maintaining the high levels of service that they expect. These new services will enable us to grow our customer base and drive new revenues for our business."

Jasper Weijman, Vice President of Sales EMEA, LogicaCMG's Global Telecoms, said: "Our work with HTmobile demonstrates our ability to work with operators to provide proven next generation messaging solutions. This is another win for us within the Deutsche Telekom group and confirms LogicaCMG's position as one of the key suppliers of high performance messaging platforms to this group."
