Mobile operators are seeking to grow revenues through attracting new customers using digital services, without incurring commercial risks. Smartphone affordability and access to credit is a global challenge.  Managing non-payment of bills and credit risk risks costs the industry $14bn per year.  In addition, c.$3.5bn is lost through supply chain theft each year.  (source:RAG).

Device financing – increasing affordability

We enable you to increase smartphone affordability and grow your digital revenues. Our secure, innovative solution, offers device financing with in-built security & control. Whether you need to migrate customers from 2G to 4G, or encourage 5G take up, our cloud-based platform enables you to increase your customer base, without increasing your commercial risk.

Our Telecoms Platform has flexibility, security and customer experience at its core, reducing the risks of bad debt and missed customers payments.

Unlike conventional tools and processes, Trustonic’s Mobile Device Lifecycle Management platform delivers control and flexibility, on a per-smartphone basis. This means that you can communicate with customers to remind them to pay their bills and remotely lock your customer’s smartphone should they not make the outstanding payment.

This approach is proven to gently ‘nudge’ postpay customers into paying outstanding bills – delinquency rates are estimated at 15% globally and can be up to 40% in some markets. With this level of non-bill payment, our solution can improve revenue assurance significantly and aid customer retention. With Trustonic, you can curate their own policies at any time, lowering your overall customer risk profile and accepting and retaining more customers.

Supply chain device theft could become a thing of the past

Supply chain theft is a multi-billion dollar global industry issue. Trustonic is the first choice for mobile operators who want to protect their smartphones from when they leave the factory right through to when they are recycled. Wherever a smartphone is stolen in the world (including countries that do not use IMEI blacklisting), our platform is able to fully lock down the smartphone, making it unusable and therefore removing its resale value.

When the stolen smartphone is switched on, a screen appears, showing that it has been locked and that the smartphone is unable to be used. Our technology is designed to both discourage and de-incentivise smartphone theft and fraud by removing the potential resale value. This approach is proven to safeguard margins and profits.

Protect smartphone subsidies with SIM lock

Some mobile operators invest millions in smartphone subsidies. This reduces the upfront cost of the smartphone to the customer, with the expectation that this investment will pay off over time.

Network subsidies are prone to fraudulent behaviours and, until now, mobile operators have not been able to protect against misuse. With Trustonic’s cloud-cased solution, mobile operators can protect these subsidies against telecom fraud with a mobile operator SIM lock, maximising their financial return and revenue assurance.

Trustonic secured smartphones can be locked to your network, ensuring the customer remains on the yournetwork until the you have re-couped your subsidy investment.  Customers can request the network lock to be lifted via an application, or the lock can be lifted automatically after a specific period.

Improving fraud management

Fraud is a fact of life for many mobile operators. As margins continue to be squeezed, operators are increasingly focused on solving the issue, to improve margins and release cash for re-investment. It is estimated that 2.9% of operator revenues are lost to fraud (source: GSMA). Fraudulent activity can be found in a number of areas: throughout the supply chain, identity fraud and where an individual has no intention to pay – even though they have signed a contract.

 

The Trustonic Telecoms Platform’s comprehensive management portal enables you to communicate directly with smartphones, helping you to act quickly and decisively when you identify fraudulent activity.

In the event of suspected or proven fraudulent activity, warning messages are displayed on the device screen.  Devices can be locked remotely, either individually in response to a one-off event, or in bulk, such as a response to a pallet of devices being stolen. Once locked, devices will be unusable anywhere in the world.
