Intersec MEA Winner 2018

Intersec wins a Media Excellence Award in the Analytics/Big Data Category

Intersec, a leading vendor of real-time streaming analytics software which allows companies to use collected data to enhance their services, announced today that its Contextual Marketing Solution won in the Analytics/Big Data category at this year’s Media Excellence Awards (MEA).

Intersec’s Contextual Marketing Solution allows companies to send messages and interact with their clients by automating below the line marketing actions, adapting to the needs of clients (based on factors like customer profile and geographical location), analysing client databases, defining targets and setting interaction rules. Intersec’s goal with this solution is to delegate these tasks to autonomous rules and algorithms, with the purpose of augmenting client satisfaction and increasing sales. The Contextual Marketing Solution allows marketers to trigger relevant engagement based on their customers’ unique context, gain a significant competitive advantage thanks to more in-depth insights and ultimately accelerate their digital transformation.
For example, did you know 60% of roaming pass bundles are sold via push SMS when arriving in a new country? Many people traveling are afraid of a bill shock if they use data abroad. Consequently, they just turn their phones
off or disable data and look for Wi-Fi connections. With Intersec solution, a telco operator can comfort them by pushing a tailored offer as soon as they pass the frontier: a customer-specific SMS depending on segment, country, type of tariff plan, loyalty, etc.Customers like Telus, Telefonica Group, Altice, Orange or HKT use Intersec’s Contextual Marketing Solution.

The Media Excellence Awards is one of the most influential media awards shows, honouring innovation and leadership in mixed media, entertainment, mobile and technology from all industry strata, from start-ups to international brands.
“We feel it’s important that the industry recognizes the companies and individuals who have strived to create, innovate and lead the way in building the global technology economy,” said Sarah Miller, CEO of Axis PR & Entertainment and Executive Producer, Media Excellence Awards.

Announced in 2016, the partnership to expand location-based offerings led to several deals throughout 2017 and 2018

ANNAPOLIS, Md. and PARIS, France – February 16th, 2018

Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (Nasdaq:CMTL) Enterprise Technologies group, which is part of Comtech’s Commercial Solutions segment, a leader in device location and messaging technology, and Intersec, a leading vendor of real-time location data analytics software, announced today that the companies have been successfully working together to expand location opportunities to fuel use cases such as asset tracking, fleet management, population safety and  Smart Cities.
In 2016, the challenge was to establish a scalable, best-in-class technology from two of the world’s leading location solutions companies to better serve companies generating huge amounts of location data. The bet paid off, as 2017 has shown, and the strategic partnership leveraged the two companies’ core competencies: Comtech’s precise location technologies and Intersec’s ability to trigger business processes-based location data analysis and the provision of corresponding applications.

New Customers
This partnership allowed both companies to sign deals with major operators in SE Asia, Middle East, North  America, and North Africa for a variety of location-based applications. It proved all the more fruitful when combining Comtech’s active Enhanced Cell Id location (e-CID) with Intersec’s passive location and analytics capabilities—particularly for location-based advertising and M2M asset tracking use cases.

Revenue Growth for 2018
According to Telecoms.com’s 2017 Annual Industry Survey, 53.7% of surveyed operators said the enterprise sector holds the greatest opportunity for revenue growth in 2018. Location is a great way to address B2B customers and create new revenue streams. 

Location-Targeted Mobile Ad Spend: An Example
Confirmation is given with the example of Location-Targeted Mobile Ad Spend. According to a BIA/Kelsey 2017 study, Location-Targeted Mobile Ad Spend is promised to grow from $B16 in 2017 to $B32 in 2021 – representing 45% of all ad spending.

What next?
As both our target markets and our solutions are complementary, our growth objectives have become bijective. Moreover, the two companies are currently working on an innovative SaaS solution for IoT to be launched in 2018.

“Intersec is a highly valued partner in providing highly accurate and secure location-based services to the mobile and wireless technology industries. We look forward to additional joint customer wins, as the industry moves toward 4G and 5G solutions.” Jay Whitehurst, President, Comtech Enterprise Technologies Group
“We are proud that both our companies made it to such a successful partnership! With new solutions and great references now using our technologies’ location capabilities to drive new revenue streams for marketing, customer experience enhancement and advertising, 2018 is sure to be a great year.” Intersec Vice President of Strategic Alliances Patrick Métaireau
