    DIMOCO strengthens its carrier billing hold on Europe with Onebip buy

    Carrier billing specialist DIMOCO, has cemented its place as a leading global power in charge to mobile with the purchase of billing company Onebip, opening up a range of markets to carrier billing.

    “The combination of Onebip’s position in the Italian market with our broader European coverage will provide our clients with access to one of Europe’s largest mobile payment markets and will make inroads into major Latin American markets, such as Brazil and Mexico,” said Gerald Tauchner, president and CEO of DIMOCO (pictured above). “The acquisition is also expected to result in greater efficiencies and significantly enhanced technical abilities.”

    “I strongly believe that Onebip technology and its solution suite will have a significant impact on the DIMOCO brand,” added Gianluca D’Agostino, exiting CEO of Onebip. “I see material synergies in this deal and the outcome will prove to be valuable for both merchants and mobile network operators.”

    The acquisition of Onebip follows years of close working between Neomobile and DIMOCO. The two companies will continue their partnership to strengthen their position both in Europe and Latin America. Neomobile, the leading mobile commerce company and former shareholder of Onebip, will focus more on digital entertainment, its main business, and leaving behind the mobile payment segment.

    “This deal strengthens our partnership with DIMOCO and provides us the opportunity to focus more on our path of innovation, increasing our investments in new products in mobile entertainment and programmatic advertising, while speeding up our entry into new markets in Middle East and Asia,” said Claudio Rossi, CEO of Neomobile.

    Under the terms of the acquisition agreement, DIMOCO has agreed to use Onebip’s existing payment hub and engineering staff to provide high-quality services to international merchants. Onebip’s clients will continue to receive the same quality of service they have come to expect.

    Onebip is now a wholly owned subsidiary of DIMOCO Europe and employs 15 people in the city of Milan. It will be renamed to DIMOCO Italy SpA, which will continue to use Onebip as a product brand. The post-merger integration is in process and will take place over the next few weeks.
