Aepona Announces New Services Aggregation and Merchandizing Platform; New solution empowers Service Providers to capture the Cloud Services Brokerage Opportunity

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Mobile World Congress, BARCELONA, Spain -- Aepona, the software platform pioneer and global market leader in monetizing cloud and network services, today announced the launch of its new Services Aggregation and Merchandizing platform. The SAM platform provides a powerful suite of service lifecycle management tools that enable service providers to aggregate, merchandize and deliver a wide range of cloud services, enterprise applications, physical goods and value-add products and services.

The Service Aggregation And Merchandizing platform is already enabling communication service providers to generate over $300M in annual revenues.

With this solution from Aepona, service providers will be able to aggregate and broker a broad range of cloud services, which, according to Gartner, will represent the single largest category in cloud computing by 2015. This will enable them to quickly launch new service bundles and targeted offers to produce new revenue streams with a cost efficient cloud based solution.

SAM is a complete solution to manage the development and deployment of value-added services with full control and extensive partner integration. It enables service providers to generate additional revenue from new and existing subscribers, while reducing operational costs. SAM provides the ability to customize product order and provisioning processes, manage the complexities of billing and invoicing and define settlement with service partners.

With a comprehensive reporting facility and real time monitoring dashboards, SAM gives service providers the business intelligence to determine the optimal product and service mix, to select value add partners, to define effective channels and ultimately to develop compelling product and service bundles.

Al Snyder, Aepona CEO, stated: "Service providers will be able to expand their position as the trusted provider of products and services by integrating third party products and services to their offer catalogue. This will significantly improve their customers' experience and increase their revenue streams".

SAM supports the creation of partner ecosystems with the tools to successfully manage business partner relationships, onboard partners and define business models and settlement policies.

With an extensive set of powerful APIs and interfaces, Aepona enables its customers to leverage all their existing system resources and integrate them with cloud based and Web based APIs to customize and expand their product and service offerings.

Together with Aepona's API Monetization Platform, AMP, network operators can add network value to cloud services to differentiate their offerings from competing service providers. For example, they can leverage network features such as quality of service control, voice communications and contextual intelligence to provide additional features and utility to the cloud services that they deliver.

The Service Aggregation and Merchandizing platform is available now, and it is already a proven solution, deployed at a major North American operator.
