Revel Consulting Expands Telecommunications Practice to Meet Rising Demand for Mobile Services

As Consumer Demand for Smartphones and Tablets Explodes, Firm Develops Business Strategies for Leading Wireless Providers

KIRKLAND, WA--(Marketwire - May 2, 2011) - Revel Consulting (www.revelconsulting.com), a Kirkland, Washington based business management consulting firm, today announced the expansion of its Telecommunications (telecom) Practice to meet the quickly rising demand from companies in the industry seeking smart, nimble business strategies. Revel is currently working with several of the nation's leading telecom/wireless providers, helping to launch mobile TV applications across multiple devices (smartphone, tablets, etc.), refine and improve customer acquisition and retention programs, as well as streamline the providers' internal sales tracking systems. Revel continues to add new team members to focus on this area, as well as dedicate resources from the firm's Solutions Delivery Team to stay ahead of industry trends and implement best practices.

"We hear every day how mobile technologies will rule the future. Well the future is now, and much of it is being developed here in the Seattle area," said Vikas Kamran, Managing Director at Revel. "As key players in mobile and telecom continue to grow their markets, we've seen a real opportunity to add value and provide strategic thinking through our PURE Consulting approach."

Revel's expansion comes at a time of rapid growth and shift towards mobile platforms in the telecommunications industry. At the end of 2010, for the first time in the US market, smartphones shipments exceeded those of traditional computers (i.e. desktops, notebooks), and this trend is expected to continue at a greater scale in 2011. Additionally, a recent study by research firm Gartner estimates that nearly 18 billion mobile applications will be downloaded in 2011 alone. This figure is up more than 100 percent from the 8.2 billion downloaded in 2010. Gartner expects the industry as a whole to earn more than $15 billion in revenues between downloaded apps from smartphones and tablets, as well as advertising within those applications.

"There are numerous opportunities for companies in this space to increase their services and hence revenues, but many executives aren't sure where to focus their efforts," said Kamran. "Thanks to the cutting-edge research by our Solutions Delivery Team, we have been thinking and working in mobile telecom for years, helping our clients make forward-looking decisions about where to take their business to capitalize on the dramatic rise of these technologies."

Through the firm's PURE Consulting approach, Revel connects clients in telecom and other industries directly with senior level consultants, who provide key business strategy and drive critical results, rather than simply augmenting existing project teams.
