About the App
The Alepo “My Mobile Buddy” mobile app puts policy control in the pockets of mobile subscribers, creating a highly contextual and personalized digital experience. At the same time, it provides mobile operators with a truly end-to-end solution for data monetization that requires almost zero effort to deploy and manage.
Alepo built the Alepo My Mobile Buddy mobile app with the primary objective of delivering a complete market-ready solution for data monetization, one that would enable the mobile operator to differentiate itself in an increasingly competitive marketplace.
With the ability to make policy decision directly from his smartphone, the mobile subscriber becomes the decision-maker for his digital experience, dictating when, where, and how he wants to consume services with the ease and enjoyment of a sophisticated and sleek mobile app. From within the app, subscribers can gift mobile data to other subscribers, allocate data to family members within the same plan, manage parental controls, purchase international roaming data passes, and more.
The Alepo My Mobile Buddy mobile app benefits both the mobile operator and the end subscriber. Mobile operators enjoy a fully managed solution that encourages purchase and consumption of data services as valued experiences, and elevates the mobile operator’s brand as modern and customer-centric.
