Partnership with top brands
As part of its future-ready vision of turning all telcos and merchants digital, Apigate, the next generation Application Programming Interface (API) platform, has forged partnerships with top multinational enterprises in India, Singapore and China.
The globally spread company is expanding regional footprint in high growth Asian markets after a well-received launch of apigateMint and apigateAXP, a new suite of products designed to maximize revenue.
Apigate announced the Future Advancement at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on 27 Feb 2019.
A Singtel and Apigate partnership further increases Apigate’s footprint in India, Singapore, Thailand, Philippines and Australia, enabling both parties to explore direct carrier billing opportunities and payment platform solutions.
Multinational companies in China are leveraging on Apigate to assist in increasing consumer reach. Apigate has partnered with Tencent, an internet-based technology company and CMGE, China’s leading IP-oriented game operator and mobile game publisher to bring large scale gaming and content to the public.
Combining the innovative insights of a telco and the technology of an award-winning open source digital platform, Apigate’s strong partnerships and relationships make accessing millions of consumers easy across every service – via its API gateway hubs around the world.
“As the world transforms and becomes increasingly digital, new services and disruptors require connectivity and the ability to access and connect to customers easily,” said Zoran Vasiljev, CEO, Apigate.
“Apigate helps businesses expand and transform digitally to reach their objectives via our new-breed API platform ecosystem that sets the standard for seamless connectivity to reach customers and partners. With a presence in Asia, Africa, Europe, and Latin America, we have a global growth agenda to help businesses scale the global market,” Vasiljev said.
The expansion into India includes a global partnership between One98/PayTM, India’s largest e-wallet service provider that will allow Apigate to connect its international partners to PayTM’s wallet services while expanding the reach of One97’s content services to customers worldwide.
On top of that, Apigate recently announced their landmark partnership with Zee5, a multi-lingual digital entertainment platform, to deliver the largest bouquet of content across languages and genres to audiences globally. In addition, Apigate will have direct connectivity to Vodafone Idea Limited.
Looking to the future, Apigate aims to grow and scale the business to become a $1 billion company, acquiring new businesses, capabilities, partners and channels, offering a full-suite of new services.
Focusing on its fundamentals, Apigate will deploy its platform with global telco companies but also venture beyond telco-centric industries such as gaming and entertainment to offer clear, focused and disciplined growth paths.
Apigate is a new-breed Application Programming Interface (API) platform that connects a world class ecosystem to enable businesses to transform digitally. With a reach of 3.5 billion customers, over 110 MNOs and more than 300 connected merchants, Apigate enables connectivity and monetization with one seamless integration. fiinews.com
