Unlock hidden revenues from silent roamers

In a society where people are always on the go, a new legion of hyper-connected consumers are almost always in-transit, roaming from network to network. Roaming retail rates were once set by adding a cap on top of the TAP charged by a roaming partner. This approach is no longer viable today due to complexities arising from the number of retail tariffs that make rates unclear and unpredictable to the end-users.

As the percentage of subscribers who are disconnected when roaming can go as high as 80%, there is a tremendous missed opportunity for operators to grow revenues that can be addressed explicitly by deploying Mobileum’s Retail Roaming Business Advisor (RBA).

Take silent roamers off mute

Mobileum’s Retail Business Advisor (RBA) is a comprehensive roaming solution based on data analytics and powered by machine learning. Designed to identify segments of customers who are silent roamers, RBA can propose the most appropriate plans and campaigns in real-time to encourage low-usage customers to roam.

Outbound roamers can be classified into groups, such as those with data roaming turned off or those that are only sending text. These subscriber lists can then be uploaded to campaign management systems to stimulate usage via appropriate text or email offers.

Mobileum's Roaming Management Software

Whether you’re focused on driving efficiencies in our current roaming business, or looking to leverage new business models, Mobileum’s roaming solutions can redefine how your roaming business can compete in a digital world.

Predict customer roaming travel to proactively serve them

Roaming teams can anticipate roaming travel with Mobileum’s predictive models that provide accurate forecasting of roaming customers with a clear graphical representation of results and expected trip duration.

Based on analytical insights, MNOs can proactively serve their roaming customer base with the most suitable plans, taking into account wholesale costs and travel predictions. By using analytics to detect customer context, even before the subscriber travels, operators can proactively offer targeted bundles tailored to the roaming individual’s sales history and usage.

Recommend relevant packs to gain new revenue streams

For international travelers, staying connected has become a priority for checking emails, making calls, or even utilizing “survival apps” such as Google Maps when traveling abroad.

Since travelers can choose from many different connectivity options - Wi-Fi, local SIM cards, or roaming — the competition is high. Mobileum’s Roaming Business Advisor enables MNOs to detect, identify, and segment roaming users in real-time (i.e., silent roamers, permanent roamers). With these insights, operators can proactively monetize their roaming status by offering the most suitable packs or bundles that contribute to new revenue streams.

If the operator does not yet provide the most suitable pack, recommendations are made by the system to help design the most appropriate offering.

Our roaming solutions, built on machine learning, offer the best technology to enable fast innovation.
