The winners of the following categories are:

  1. BEST DCB CARRIER: “Pay with Orange” service, Direct Carrier Billing for MEA region

Judges’ Comments:

“Orange has been developing and expanding their DCB service in different regions. “Pay with Orange” provides customers in Africa a new alternative way of making payments…Thanks to its large presence in emerging markets, Orange has a head start on improving DCB engagement and monetisation.”

 

  1. BEST DCB AGGREGATOR: Infobip/Centili

Judges’ Comments:

“Centili leads through managing the payment interfaces for Merchants to ensure the roller coaster revenue effect is levelled and enabling Carriers to open billing solutions ahead of their own implementation of Carrier Billings platforms…They have been contributing to DCB service and continually developing new services.”

 

 

  1. MOST INNOVATIVE DCB TECHNOLOGY: The Bango Platform

Judges’ Comments:

“Being able to buy physical goods is the final frontier for DCB and key to unlocking its full potential. Bango’s Amazon Japan use case is a great example of this…. The availability of carrier billing in the Amazon Japan store takes DCB to a new level.”

 

Congratulations to the Winners!

Golf, golf, golf, networking & BBQ! Book in your Golf team for 6th July

With less than a month before we head back out onto the green on the 6th July, there is still time to come and join us for a day of relaxed networking in the open air; and with the sun shining today it is nice reminder of what a great day out our AIME Golf Day is.

This is good way to meet new business contacts, play some golf, have a drink and a bite to eat on a summers day. You do not need to be a member of AIME to join our Golf Day, and you do not need to be a professional golfer to take part! You can put your own team together, with your staff and clients or come as a single player to take advantage of the networking opportunities and we will create a team for you.

The day kicks off at the beautiful Pyrford Golf Course near Wisley Gardens in Woking at 8.00am with breakfast rolls and coffee, before you head off to practise on the driving range. The teams are then split for a two tee start and the day begins! With an interesting course of challenges including our in house Nearest the Pin and Longest Drive competitions, it is great way to build relationships and have some friendly banter on the green. Then head back to the Clubhouse where you can relax at the bar and go over the day’s events with your team mates, before settling down for the late afternoon BBQ and the days awards!

Your ticket includes:

  • Breakfast rolls and coffee
  • Survival goody bag per person
  • Driving Range practise
  • Round on an 18 hole golf course
  • Opportunity to take part in the day’s competitions and be in with a chance to win one of the day’s awards
  • Afternoon BBQ

 

Players already booked to attend include:

  • Cellcast
  • Dynamic Mobile Billing
  • Fonix
  • Telecom2
  • Vodafone
  • Monitoring Compliance Partners
  • Telemedia
  • Mobile Squared

 

If you want to come but think you may need accommodation either the night before or the night of the golf please get in contact as we can help arrange this for you. This means you will not have to worry about getting to the course on time if you are coming from further away, and can arrive at the golf course refreshed and ready for the day ahead.

If you want to get more involved in the day we have a range of Sponsorship opportunities to suit every budget, and help the day go with a swing, while promoting your company out on the course. Please contact AIME for more details.

We hope to see you on the green!
