eServGlobal Launch of Revolutionary Social Networking Software



    PARIS, Feb. 10 /CNW/ - eServGlobal Limited (LSE: ESG & ASX: ESV), a
worldwide supplier of independent and flexible telecommunications Value Added
Services for Messaging and Charging solutions, today announces the launch of
its revolutionary Social Relationship Manager (SRM) software that joins mobile
telephone networks with popular internet social networking sites.
    The new SRM software allows telco operators to launch a new kind of value
added mobile service, one which provides incentives to their subscribers, who
in return choose to share their personal profile information. Thus, the
operator acquires a new type of business intelligence and uses its customers'
social influence to retain the most valuable subscribers. Further, the
operator enjoys reduced churn and has the opportunity to acquire its
subscribers' friends through the application of suitable referral rewards -
all managed inside the application. The service is compatible with most of the
popular social networking sites.
    Since the advent of 3G, the operator community has struggled to find the
"killer application" for always-on devices. However, with more than 650
million subscribers to the top 10 social networking sites, end-users can now
enjoy the benefit of mobile data services, by constantly checking or updating
lightweight content, which perfectly suits both the mobile device and access
networks.
    Operators have recognised this trend and have reacted by offering cheap
data bundles or customised handsets for social networking but, until now, have
found no way to move up the value chain, by either offering dedicated content
or compelling applications around the Social Networking domain. The
eServGlobal SRM allows operators to participate in the social networking
phenomenon, while maintaining their role as the underlying platform for
communications.
    Designed to be effective in markets approaching all-you-can-eat
subscriptions or ultra-low cost per minute, this new service will help
operators keep ARPU high by stimulating the user base to communicate
frequently inside the operator domain.
    Ian Buddery, Executive Chairman of eServGlobal, said: "The coming year is
sure to be challenging for operators. They will have to balance the need to
stimulate existing subscribers and increase market share, while at the same
time reduce the "cost to serve" of Value Added Services. By offering the SRM
as an adjunct module to an existing system, eServGlobal is able to provide a
compelling business case for telecom operators who wish to attract new
subscribers and increase revenue."
    eServGlobal has worldwide patents pending for the SRM application, the
business intelligence algorithms and the unique deployment options which are
available.
    eServGlobal will demonstrate the Social Relationship Manager at a launch
attended by telecom operators from across the globe at the GSMA Mobile World
Congress in Barcelona from 16 to 19 February. Visit Stand 8A69 in Hall 8.
