BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Today at Mobile World Congress, Mobidia Technology, Inc., a leading provider of device-centric, mobile data solutions, announced the availability of a major new update to its popular My Data Manager application for Android and iOS mobile devices. The new version will be shipping to mobile operators and their subscribers worldwide by the end of the first quarter of 2012.
Driven requests stemming from multiple mobile operators worldwide, including Vodafone, TELUS, Globe Telecom, and C Spire (Cellular South), the next version of My Data Manager allows operators to configure specific extensions, including customized notifications, up-selling and cross-selling promotions, and back-end billing system integration. The new version also expands the reporting of data usage to hourly, daily, weekly and monthly timeframes, as well as per-application views on mobile, roaming, and Wi-Fi connections.
Early versions of the new release of My Data Manager have already been customized for specific top-tier operator engagements using its powerful new framework. New customization features include automated subscriber billing profile configuration, customized "bill shock" and cross-selling promotional notifications, and subscriber surveys. These features demonstrate the unique value the Mobidia platform is bringing to operators' data solutions. In addition, the new framework allows operators to rapidly deploy advanced versions of their "My Operator" applications that can include their existing legacy web application capabilities within the popular My Data Manager application so that more functionality can be delivered to their subscribers in a single user interface.
For consumers, the release also unifies the Android and iOS functionality so users of both platforms can enjoy new features. iPhone users will now be able to see their data usage on a per-application basis while Android users will now be able to view their consumption on an hourly and daily basis.
