MVNOs: DIGITIZE to Create YOUR Niche

Posted By :
Brick and mortar stores nowadays have a tough competition from Digital stores to sell products and services. In the digital era, Internet has changed the way we live, work and communicate. Nowadays, we can do almost everything over the internet, be it ordering a burger, buying a mobile, chatting with friends, sharing videos, watching movies etc. According to Total Retail Survey 2016 conducted by PWC, 54% of the respondents buy products online. A study conducted by Forrester Research states 64% of shoppers research their purchases online before buying offline. The same buying behavior is also applicable to the ever evolving Telecom ecosystem. Hence, it is imperative for operators to embrace the digital world quickly, which helps them to showcase their product and services to a large set of customers and maintain relevance. As per GSMA, there are over 1,250 MVNOs worldwide; and the competition has further heated up due to the rise of OTT Vendors, Multiple MNOs and saturated mobile penetration. To survive in this breakneck competition, merely competing on price will not be enough. MVNOs have the opportunity to exploit the benefits that stem from offering digital services to their tech savvy always connected customers, who are enabled by the proliferation of smart devices, connectivity & digital content. They prefer online mediums over offline mediums to satiate their needs. How digitizing will enable seamless user experience
