Oxygen8 has commenced a re-brand exercise to Dynamic Mobile Billing (DMB) to better reflect its changing focus on mobile payments – and to smooth its re-entry into the PRS business.
Supporting multiple payment and engagement technologies across SMS, USSD, direct carrier billing, voice and E-money solutions – all underpinned by local regional offices and personnel that deliver ‘best in class’ levels of support – DMB is aiming to be the market leading, optimised and trusted billing partner of choice to VAS merchants and beyond.
With an experienced management team across the globe, DMB will build on the established footprint Oxygen 8 built up in its key billing markets such as Australia, Canada, Caribbean, Ireland, Kenya, Mozambique, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda and the UK, while it continues to expand its footprint further in Africa throughout 2017.
Kev Dawson steps into the role of CEO for the DMB business. A well-known face in the telemedia industry and a current board member of AIME, he will spearhead a billing-centric, globally operating business that will support DMB’s established and new clients in the micro-payments landscape as it evolves, develops and grows.
Oxygen8 made a decision in the final quarter of 2016 to step away from many PRS services, advising its merchants that it would no longer accept new billing intakes for services that it felt were driving customer complaints to levels that it considered were unacceptable.
Having observed the work within industry and its efforts to address the majority of the most pressing concerns through Project 30 and Project Slimline, plus moves to better handle complaints, the company now feels it can re-enter the UK PRS marketplace with a renewed confidence in its future scope and viability.
“With our continued desire to contract with sustainable clients moving forward, we aim to become a valued part of the value chain again,” says new CEO Dawson.
Tola Mobile is a further business entity operated to underpin ‘E-Money payments’ and is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), operating independent to Dynamic Mobile Billing yet collectively offering merchants a comprehensive suite of mobile payment solutions. Tola Mobile has now finalised its structure in relation to a dedicated management team, resources and operations so to enable it to focus and to grow independently.
