Daily Tracking Service
The most dynamic and fast-changing aspect of mobile service plan development and pricing is the promotional market. In most countries, these short-term offers are an operator’s best tool to entice competitors’ customers to switch or encourage their own customers to increase their monthly mobile spend. Despite the importance of these promotions, they often pose a significant challenge for mobile operators to track, understand and counter quickly. Our Daily Tracking Service addresses this challenge by capturing all the mobile promotions in a country and providing clients with a daily customized PowerPoint that details every active plan and device offer.
