Openet, the leading provider of Transactional Intelligence for the world’s largest and most innovative network service providers, today announced it is demonstrating its eWallet Solution with new itaas-developed applications designed to upsell cable subscribers in real-time. The demo will feature a new, real-time sports package ordering and fulfillment application, and a premium channel upsell application. These interactive TV applications will be demonstrated at The Cable Show 2010, May 11-13 in Los Angeles, in the itaas, Inc. booth, #439.
Through the use of Openet’s eWallet solution as the platform for the itaas-developed interactive applications, these demonstrations show how operators can offer complete interactive fulfillment and upsell, and subscribers can purchase new programming packages immediately on screen.
“Subscribers are beginning to expect instant gratification based on their internet viewing and shopping experiences,” said Jim Elayan, vice president of marketing for itaas. “Interactive applications can attract the TV viewer; however, when combined with scalable and robust solutions like eWallet from Openet, there is a more familiar user experience, benefiting both operators and their subscribers.”
Openet’s expertise in Subscriber Data Management, along with its ability to correlate data from dispersed network data repositories in real time, is enabling cable operators to undertake new initiatives that maximize revenue opportunities while driving increased subscriber satisfaction. MSOs and content providers are moving towards deeper subscriber interaction by leveraging Openet solutions as the foundation for an interactive fulfillment strategy with subscriber-facing iTV applications developed by itaas.
“Consumers want access and convenience from every service they order—they don’t distinguish between shopping online or on screen, and expect the same level of interactivity and service regardless of medium,” said Mike Manzo, CMO of Openet. “Openet has the experience, scale and speed to enable real-time interactive fulfillment for any cable operator or content provider.”
