Concord, CA (PRWEB) March 05, 2012
Exadel™, a leading global software engineering company, and Aepona, the market leader in Network as a Service (NaaS) solutions, today announced a partnership that will help developers and operators generate new revenues from mobile applications. Users of Exadel’s Tiggzi Mobile App Builder, a cloud-based cross-platform development environment, can now easily utilize the billing and authentication APIs provided by Aepona’s Service Provider partners to offer in-app billing capabilities without the need for a credit card or PayPal account. This integration is the first of numerous services to be offered by Aepona to help developers create rich, interactive mobile applications that leverage the capabilities of network operators and service providers.
The partnering of Exadel and Aepona marks the continued momentum of the Tiggzi development ecosystem, which is designed to help developers create finished fully-functional mobile applications that can be deployed on any handheld device. By significantly reducing development efforts and costs, Tiggzi slashes time to market and enables users to maximize revenue from their mobile applications.
“Exadel has made it much easier for developers to access the network resources of Aepona’s Service Provider partners by integrating their services into the Tiggzi Mobile App Builder environment,” said Kevin Wagner, Aepona’s SVP of Corporate Marketing and Business Development. “With Tiggzi, network operators’ billing and authentication APIs are easily built into a well-designed app, providing a low-friction way to create a convenient in-app payment experience.”
Aepona, a pioneer and global market leader in monetizing cloud and network services, has been supplying state-of-the-art, telco-grade software products to the global communications industry for over 10 years. The Aepona network operators’ billing and authentication APIs allow providers of digital goods and services to request charges to be made to the consumers’ phone bill, manage refunds, handle subscriptions and recurring payments, and ensure consumer consent is obtained and managed. These services are part of the Aepona API Monetization Platform (AMP), which exposes a variety of Web Services APIs to enable application developers to leverage the capabilities within the telecoms network. APIs are available to allow application developers to send messages, locate terminals and make charges, as well as establish and control voice calls.
