Protect Messaging Revenue and Open New Revenue Opportunities

For systems integrators and channel partners, Mavenir Engage provides a solid customer engagement platform with interconnection to leading messaging ecosystems as well as global mobile network operators (MNOs) that opens new revenue opportunities. For example, channel partners can leverage the monetization tools within Mavenir Engage to build value on top of the platform, with their own templated chatbots and pre-packaged experiences, delivered to the market in a predictable and affordable way and lowering the barrier of entry from the large enterprise to the small and medium business.
RCS Business Messaging
Mavenir Engage includes a GSMA standards-compliant RCS Business Messaging as a Service (RBMaaS) solution—powered by MAVscale MaaP. Mavenir Engage allows MNOs to protect their growing business messaging revenue by providing a fast and simple solution to implement RCS business messaging into the wireless network, from the cloud, with full compatibility with GSMA Universal Profile clients and facilitating the integration of enablers such as chatbots, mobile payments and other messaging-based applications. Mavenir Engage enables MNOs and aggregators to strategically position themselves as key players in the business-to-consumer (B2C) messaging market.
Enhancing Business-to-Consumer (B2C) Customer Engagement
Mavenir Engage allows service providers to stand out from the OTT noise by offering brands and aggregators a messaging solution that has the attributes they covet:
- Reach—any consumer with a mobile phone number and an RCS compatible device and backward compatibility with MMS or SMS only devices
- Clean Channel—ensuring the conversation between the brand and the consumer is private and the content will not be shared with third parties for other purposes (e.g.: tracking)
- Richness—the RCS Universal Profile provides a baseline that all clients and devices support for rich multimedia capabilities such as images, audio, video, rich cards (single or in carousels), pre-configured response buttons, QR codes and more
- Rewards—the monetization platform allows opt-in consumers to receive offers and be rewarded with minutes/megabytes/points or other assets
- Privacy and protection—with business authentication and authorization that assures consumers they are interacting with the real brand, and lets them finalize the conversation whenever they want, opting out from receiving additional messages
Why service providers need to have their own messaging solution
For brands to see mobile messaging as the ultimate digital billboard, a business messaging solution needs to provide rich communications that reach the highest number of eyeballs possible, while ensuring compliance with security and privacy regulations and, most importantly, the guarantee of a clean channel to the consumer—where metadata is not harvested to be sold to their competitors for tracking or advertising purposes. Outsourcing your messaging services can put many of these factors at risk.

A Partner Ecosystem Program to Nurture the Indirect Business Model

This is achieved through the Mavenir Business Messaging Ecosystem, the bridge that connects service providers to the future of B2C interaction by allowing partners to pre-integrate with Mavenir’s solutions and make their messaging-based services available to more than 250 Mavenir MNO customers globally.
Join the Partner Program
The Mavenir Business Messaging Ecosystem Partner Program allows service partners to pre-integrate with Mavenir’s RCS, Messaging as a Platform (MaaP), and messaging monetization solutions, expanding their market reach to all the MNOs using Mavenir’s Business Messaging solutions. The program accelerates service deployment for MNOs, which can now access a broad range of pre-integrated messaging enablers from their Mavenir messaging solution.
It’s a win-win situation where the MNO can obtain revenue from business messaging faster by delivering a broad range of services to the enterprises, and the partner can increase their profitability by obtaining more income from a larger market and minimizing the cost of selling and integrating individually with each MNO.
