Wmode Launches Advanced Customer Engagement Solution for Connected Devices at CES 2013

Ingage(TM) by Wmode enables service providers to connect with their subscribers like never before through an integrated consumer application

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/10/13 -- Wmode is pleased to announce the launch of Ingage, an essential customer self-care app aimed at driving consumer loyalty and reducing customer care costs. Designed with the core values of providing an intuitive customer care approach, Ingage gives users an unprecedented experience with their providers across smart phones, tablets and other connected devices.

Via Ingage, mobile carriers, cable operators and service providers across the board can enable their customers to engage with them outside the outdated call centers or restrictive desktop websites they currently offer. While offering all the benefits and features you get with a dedicated desktop website, Ingage is more than a self-care app. Through Ingage, service providers also have a one-to-one marketing tool that allows promotion of products and services tailored to their subscribers.

The intrinsic value Ingage offers to customers is the unrestricted freedom to manage and access their accounts and services. Through the application, customers can pay bills, set up automated prepayment options, manage family plans, view usage and consumption, subscribe to new services, join loyalty programs, apply for promotions and locate stores and FAQ's just to name a few. Developing Ingage through native applications and HTML5, service providers can expect to reach a wide range of connected devices with a highly optimized and customer orientated care product. Leveraging Wmode's experience in mobility, Ingage also features analytics and reporting that includes consumer analysis and transactional reporting for the benefit of the service provider and its business initiatives.

Speaking to the current climate of customer care, Tom Beaman Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Wmode commented, "Today's self-care options are not always convenient or user friendly, limiting customers to call their service provider or wait until they can access the full website. Ingage gives the customer a much more compelling option, allowing the service provider to interact with customers efficiently while offering a rich user experience with instant notifications and saving money that's spent operating call centers."

Ingage is offered as a turnkey managed service leveraging Wmode's existing app creation and network integration experience. The adaptive and component based architecture allows for seamless integration into backend systems and minimizes IT involvement.

As detailed by Emanuel Bertolin, CEO at Wmode "Ingage is a one-stop shop for organizations who want to create a dynamic self-care offering to their customers across a range of connected devices. In addition, we have built a promotion engine for organizations to market products and services to their customers. Moving quickly from our exciting product launch here at CES 2013, we will shortly be implementing Ingage for an existing Wmode customer in Q1 of 2013."

Financial Technology has become a topic of intense interest throughout the cloud developer and enterprise IT communities. Accordingly, attendees at the upcoming 20th Cloud Expo at the Javits Center in New York, June 6-8, 2017, will find fresh new content in a new track called FinTech.
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
"We're a cybersecurity firm that specializes in engineering security solutions both at the software and hardware level. Security cannot be an after-the-fact afterthought, which is what it's become," stated Richard Blech, Chief Executive Officer at Secure Channels, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Everyone knows that truly innovative companies learn as they go along, pushing boundaries in response to market changes and demands. What's more of a mystery is how to balance innovation on a fresh platform built from scratch with the legacy tech stack, product suite and customers that continue to serve as the business' foundation. In his General Session at 19th Cloud Expo, Michael Chambliss, Head of Engineering at ReadyTalk, discussed why and how ReadyTalk diverted from healthy revenue and mor...
Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
You have great SaaS business app ideas. You want to turn your idea quickly into a functional and engaging proof of concept.

How could you achieve all the above and yet avoid unforeseen IT requirements that add unnecessary cost and complexity? You also want your app to be responsive in any device at any time. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Allen, General Manager of...
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
