ActiveCare – Mobile Update is InnoPath’s next generation firmware and software update solution for both smartphones and featurephones. Using Mobile Update, service providers can efficiently update phones over-the-air (OTA), saving operational expenses and increasing customer satisfaction while addressing security, usability and stability issues on handsets in the field. As an added benefit, Mobile Update also results in substantial energy savings, by avoiding customer treks to the phone shop and keeping phones in circulation longer. In fact, InnoPath calculated that in 2009, North American operators created savings of 33M Kg of CO2 across over 3.5 million successful OTA updates.
InnoPath is the global leader in OTA delivery of customer care for service providers, shortening or preventing support calls and driving first call resolution. InnoPath’s ActiveCare is a natural extension to currently deployed CRM solutions, evolving them from just logging issues to solving them. The company’s extensive experience in production Tier-1 networks helps ensure rapid and successful deployments in large, complex environments. With a proven value proposition, the payback time for an operator deploying InnoPath ActiveCare is usually less than one year.
