When the bill becomes a value-add communications tool

In a recent article by Teresa Cottam, Chief Analyst at Omnisperience, a leading specialist analyst house and consultancy that engages with B2B digital service providers, she discusses how during these unprecedented times that CSPs who are flexible and deliver tangible benefits to their clients, can become "heroes".

 

Read an abstract here -

In Omnisperience’s opinion, service providers have everything to gain from Data Donation and very little to lose. But maximising the benefit for both customers and service providers means not just offering the facility, but being able to communicate the value to the customer.

This is a point that Soft-ex’s Grainne Magfhloinn emphasises. “Providing feedback to the customer on the bill about how their donated data has been used is a great way to engage customers. Just as it’s possible to highlight a customer’s own usage, it’s also possible to provide a message explaining how much data customers have donated to good causes, or to highlight someone who’s been helped as a result of the scheme. Bills are means of communication with customers – whether you’re asking, explaining usage, providing information about additional products that would help the customer or, as in this case, adding a value-adding message. In this way, the bill can be transformed into a more proactive and positive experience. “

Management Commentary

“In the first quarter of 2020, we continued to build upon the momentum we generated last year and produced one of the most successful quarters in our company’s history,” said WidePoint’s CEO, Jin Kang. “From a financial perspective, the quarter was highlighted by an 81% increase in total revenues to $39.7 million, a 52% increase in managed services revenues, positive net income, and a $2.4 million improvement in our cash position. Operationally, we continued our work on the 2020 U.S. Census project, which was the primary cause of the uncharacteristically large increase in our topline, and which should continue contributing to our revenues until the start of 2021. During the quarter, we also secured an aggregate of $20 million in contract awards. Subsequent to the quarter’s end, we secured a 12-month sole source contract with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and we announced that we have been selected as a SYNNEX vendor, which could open new doors and help us expand our customer base. “The current pandemic has diminished our ability to accurately predict the timing of events in the nearterm, but our primary goal of simultaneously improving the topline and driving profitability as we help large enterprises navigate the complexities of the mobile landscape remains unchanged. Many of our customers are on the frontlines of battling COVID-19 and are working hard to help us all return to a sense of normalcy. We intend to ensure they have the necessary devices and cost optimization tools in place to continue operating in this challenging environment. “The world may still be fraught with uncertainty, but given the trends in our industry, our resilient customer base, and our solid financial position, we believe we are well positioned to continue successfully pursuing our strategic initiatives to drive growth and profitability in the long-run.”
