The Subscriber Created Application portal known as mChoiceTM Soltura, (referred to as “freedom to explore” in Latin) architected & developed by hSenid Mobile is deployed at Telkomsel, one of the largest Mobile operators in the world with a subscriber base of over 90 million in Indonesia.
This move is to create a paradigm shift in Mobile service creation as this revolutionary portal allows any subscriber, to create their own SMS/MMS based applications. This ultimate state of content democratization converts any of Telkomsel’s subscribers, amateur or expert, into content/app providers allowing them to instantly create apps based on voting, alerts, subscription, on-demand requests etc around their areas of interest. They simply have to get onto the web based portal via URL gapurasms.telkomsel.com and follow the pre-built user-friendly wizards to get going.
This harnesses the power of social networking and community building amongst subscribers by creating a large number of interest groups around specific areas of interest inviting a wide spectrum of service providers who wish to deliver content on a channel that is accessible by all – SMS on the mobile phone.
These service providers could be SMEs who wish to engage with their customer base, Opinion leaders & celebrities who wish to update their followers or simply a local university competition deciding the winner of its reality contest, the potential is limitless whilst opening up untapped market segments of VAS and content providers.
The proliferation of these apps is expected to be widespread with SMS having an unprecedented reach over other mediums and with its instant & interactive nature justifies the promise of this platform.
“We are delighted to have rolled out mChoiceTM Soltura, at one of the leading operators in the world. It has brought to light our product philosophy of eliminating barriers for content creation and delivery and allowing anybody to create rich applications converging information, communication and entertainment. This should help Telkomsel in expanding its VAS revenue potential significantly” says, Dinesh Saparamadu, CEO hSenid Mobile.
mChoiceTM Soltura, was provided as a Cloud based managed service, with rapid integration & a quick roll out with bandwidth resources scaled up as and when needed, ideal for the modern Telecom Operator.
Telkomsel says, “As we have proved throughout our history with innovative products, are now again on the verge of taking another giant leap into an uncontested VAS space in a competitive telecom market. We expect this to further strengthen the loyalty of our subscribers to our network with the numerous affiliations that the portal is to generate for them and therefore extremely pleased with the rolling out of the platform”.
