Value Added Services (VAS)
New solutions. Happier customers
Carriers are always on the lookout for new revenue-generating solutions to improve Average Revenue Per User (ARPU). The rise of Mobile Applications and Value Added Services (VAS) means that Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and Communication Equipment Providers (CEPs) are under enormous pressure from carriers to develop highly differentiated and cost-effective carrier-grade applications that can help them not only increase their ARPU but also enhance end customer satisfaction. With the rapid proliferation of mobile devices that feature more computing power, improved user interfaces and high-speed data capabilities, mobile subscribers are now looking to adopt services beyond voice and SMS.
Aricent offers standards-based reusable software frameworks and broad product engineering capabilities around Value Added Services to help CEPs and VAS solution providers deliver innovative mobile applications and services. By utilizing our technology expertise in design, development, testing, systems integration and maintenance, ISVs and CEPS can easily integrate our frameworks with existing network architectures across multiple platforms—delivering accelerated time to market and considerably reduced costs.
