Accenture Works With ABS-CBN Corporation to Deliver Digital Content and Communications Services to Mobile Customers

ABS-CBN Corporation is delivering digital content as well as communications services to its mobile customers, with systems integration help from Accenture (NYSE:ACN). ABS-CBN is the Philippines’ leading information and entertainment conglomerate.

Launched by ABS-CBN Convergence, the corporation’s telecommunications subsidiary, the new service, ABS-CBNmobile, is expanding the company’s market reach. It allows subscribers to use their mobile devices to access digital content online such as news, information and entertainment, in addition to their telecommunications services, which include voice and SMS (short messaging service) provided by ABS-CBN Convergence.

“Businesses are going digital, and customers want access to content and services on their mobile devices, so it is imperative for our company to stay ahead of the game by adopting the latest technological innovations to meet the evolving needs of our customers,” said Mark Lopez, Group CIO, ABS-CBN Convergence. “Accenture helped us streamline and upgrade our core processes to be more customer-centric. We believe that Accenture’s global experience in digital services will help us gain a foothold in the rapidly growing telco sector, expand our market presence, and enhance our leadership across our multi-media platforms.”

ABS-CBNmobile was implemented by Accenture with a customer relationship management platform that incorporates customer care, billing, and revenue management capabilities. This platform, originally purchased in the first quarter of 2013, leverages Siebel Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Oracle Communications Order and Service Management, and Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management and supports ABS-CBNmobile’s services for its prepaid customers. Later this year, ABS-CBNmobile will use the same platform to launch the service for its postpaid customers.

“Improving the customer experience is one of the most critical competitive factors for businesses today,” said Lito Tayag, managing director, Accenture Philippines. “The collaboration between ABS-CBN, one of the country’s pioneers and leaders in multi-media, and Accenture will enable ABS-CBN to optimize key digital solutions that allow its customers to use and enjoy ABS-CBNmobile’s services to the fullest.”

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
