Globetouch and UROS Launch Global eSIM Ecosystem to Deliver Secure, Cost-Efficient Roaming
Oakland, California and Oulu, Finland: 3rd March 2016
Globetouch, a world-leading provider of global connectivity solutions, has today announced a partnership with UROS Uni-fi Roaming Solutions, the supplier of global data roaming services, to deliver innovative new roaming services to mobile operators. Leveraging a powerful combination of Globetouch’s CloudSIM/eSIM, combined with UROS’ Goodspeed Mobile Hotspot devices and monitoring M2M platform, the partnership guarantees a fully secure, end-to-end, cost-efficient global roaming package. This enables operators to create new revenue streams, reduce bill shock and enhance the customer experience.
While there are currently circa 700 million roaming mobile subscribers, 75 percent opt not to use data services due to fear of bill shock. Through this partnership, Globetouch and UROS have created an attractive roaming proposition for mobile users by providing low-cost coverage, and implementing caps or stops for data bundles at device level via a unique global M2M platform.
For mobile operators, this approach enables them to quickly launch new, enhanced roaming propositions and unlock valuable new revenue streams from a relatively untapped market, while simultaneously reducing bill shock and enhancing the customer experience, helping to decrease churn.
UROS’ patented multi -SIM platform enables a number of different SIM technologies to be used simultaneously in one single device. With UROS and Globetouch’s unique new approach, UROS Goodspeed mobile hotspot users will now also be able to switch seamlessly from one operator profile to another via eSIMim technology. In addition, the joint solution manages consumer usage volumes and subscriptions by leveraging both Globetouch’s CloudSIM platform and the UROS device controlling the M2M platform.
“We’re delighted to be working with UROS to help bring secure low-cost, high capacity connectivity to UROS’ customers worldwide,” commented Rich Grohol, COO, Globetouch. “The partnership not only presents a huge opportunity for mobile operators to dramatically increase revenues, but also enables them to enhance the customer experience, making this an exciting step forwards for global connectivity.”
Gerrit Jan Konijnenberg, CEO of UROS, added: “Data roaming presents a huge opportunity for mobile operators to drive exciting new revenue streams, however due to the vast number of silent roamers, coupled with the prevalence of bill shock, it remains a relatively untapped market. Through our partnership with Globetouch we increase our joint eSim coverage and enhance our own global roaming Goodspeed GSim App.
Through this eSIM partnership we are increasing satisfaction among our operator customers, as well as helping them to launch new retail roaming propositions and combat the churn to Wi-Fi roaming.”
