BeQuick Software Launches Full Support for GSM-Based MVNOs on Leading Nationwide GSM Network

Partnership With Prepaid Wireless Wholesale Fuels Exclusive GSM MVNE Opportunity

PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL--(Marketwired - Jun 19, 2013) - BeQuick Software, Inc.™, which delivers prepaid customer lifecycle and billing solutions to consumer-focused communications service providers, can now support MVNOs on one of the United States' leading nationwide GSM networks. BeQuick, in conjunction with Prepaid Wireless Wholesale, LLC. (PWW), is part of a small group of mobile virtual network enablers (MVNEs) that has passed the carrier's strict qualification process. The team was selected based on the strength of Fusion, its cloud-based, next-generation MVNE platform.

BeQuick will work in close partnership with PWW, a full service provider and implementer of wireless services. BeQuick and PWW are uniquely positioned to service a new market segment of prepaid carriers looking to add GSM services to their offerings.

The clear advantage of a GSM-based MVNO offering is that it taps into the global economies of scale the GSM standard has enabled. This creates economic advantages in relation to handset procurement for MVNOs as well as bring-your-own-device (BYOD) opportunities for pre-paid customers. Previously, the primary networks for MVNOs have been based on CDMA wireless technologies which, though effective, create some constraints with regard to handset availability and BYOD.

"There are other benefits of GSM besides cheaper handsets, such as offering an MVNO a 'carrier grade' experience," said Brandt Mensh, President of Prepaid Wireless Wholesale. "With our network flexibility, this allows the MVNO to have a larger suite of offerings and a better customer experience like short codes, text to activate, and other care related services without additional operational costs. GSM also allows the MVNO to have more control over the rating of the calls -- reducing exposure and increasing profitability."

BeQuick Software can support the launch of new, GSM-based, prepaid-focused, MVNOs on a leading national GSM network and can enable existing customers to expand into nationwide, GSM-based prepaid offerings. BeQuick's Fusion next-generation MVNE platform also provides full support for CDMA-based MVNOs on multiple networks. Its addition of GSM-based capabilities gives it the most robust set of MVNE capabilities in the U.S. market.

"Our ability to meet the rigorous carrier standards as it has sought high-quality MVNE partners to manage its MVNO operations speaks to the quality of BeQuick's business and our Fusion next-gen MVNE platform," says Steve McIntosh, co-founder and COO for BeQuick Software. "For BeQuick, this translates into a powerful new opportunity to enable GSM-based MVNOs on a national basis and empower our clients to expand into new markets, introduce innovative new service offerings, and win more customers."
