[cellular news] Digitalk says that it has won a contract from Pan-Caribbean mobile network operator, Digicel for its Multiservice Platform for its prepaid services throughout the USA and Caribbean islands.
Digicel has been providing prepaid calling card and pre/post paid PINless services to Diaspora communities in the USA, particularly in Miami, Florida using a white label hosted service. The move to in-house management and operations of the platform architecture aims to offer Digicel greater control over distribution, pricing and promotions, and supports its plans to introduce services in other countries.
Digicel will migrate all its existing services over to the Digitalk Prepaid Consumer Platform initially, and then support the roll-out of services to other countries with significant Diaspora communities from the Caribbean Islands, including the UK and France.
Justin Norris, CEO of Digitalk noted "We've managed a number of large-scale deployments this side of the Atlantic now and are very pleased that our reputation as leaders in prepaid consumer platforms in our traditional European Markets has stood the test in the Americas and Caribbean."
