Jakarta, Indonesia and San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 19, 2013
AXIS, the leading online operator in Indonesia with over 17 million subscribers, today announced that it has launched AXIS Buzz, a customized version of the Active lockscreen application from Celltick Technologies, a global leader in mobile initiated commerce.
With the AXIS Buzz mobile app, AXIS is the first operator in Indonesia to be able to offer its customers a unique personalization experience for their Android devices. The app creates a highly personalized experience for AXIS’ Android customers, creating an easier to navigate interface for the consumer. The app provides fast access to the customer’s favorite and most frequently used contacts, applications, content and device functionalities. Users can also choose from hundreds of themes and plugins as well as create their own personalized backgrounds for their Android smartphones.
In addition to providing a more personalized experience, Celltick and a local partner, Lintas, have created a service for AXIS that delivers free content and targeted relevant coupons and offers that provide value to the consumer. The companies have partnered with Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) to provide free coupons worth 350,000,000 Indonesian rupiah or $35,000 in US currency for the initial users who download and use the application. The application includes services that are location based, context sensitive and cater to the needs of users beyond the mobile phone such as savings on everyday spends. The KFC coupon is valid in appointed stores for certain products.
“We have partnered with Celltick and Lintas to provide a unique way to offer greater value to our subscribers,” said Daniel Horan, Chief Marketing Officer of AXIS. “With the Buzz lockscreen mobile application, we are able to provide a unique utility to our subscribers that personalize their Android device and make it an extension of their own persona. We are also excited to give our users immediate monetary benefit when downloading the app, receiving a coupon from KFC that can be redeemed at most restaurant locations. We are extremely pleased to give our customers value with this service through local savings and deals that are intelligently targeted to their interests.”
“We are extremely excited to partner with a fast growing innovative mobile operator like AXIS. In our efforts to provide economic value to the consumer, we are thrilled to have a great brand such as KFC as one of our launch coupon partners and give immediate monetary benefits on everyday spends to the consumer,” said Ronen Daniel, CEO of Celltick. “Our goal is to help operators deliver high value services to their consumers in an intelligent and targeted fashion, which will result in higher usage and utility for their mobile device.”
“We are delighted to partner with Celltick in launching this high value consumer service with a consumer oriented operator like AXIS. We look forward to adding new coupon partners and seeing the service grow tenfold as consumers discover its usefulness and value,” remarked Sallie Bachtiar, CEO of Lintas.
