OT nabs roamers'
Telecommunications software firm Open Telecommunications is teaming up with mobile network operators (MNO) in an effort to target mobile "roamers" and increase revenue streams and customer loyalty.
Open Tel's OpenSmartMessage (openSM) software is borne out of MNO's frustration with not being able to recognise or communicate with return visitors to their networks. It allows roamers to receive targeted short messages about network options and operations in their native language, anywhere in the world.
