News Facts

Fox Mobile Distribution, one of the world’s leading providers of mobile entertainment and part of Fox Mobile Group, has implemented Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management to increase billing flexibility as it rolls out new services, as well as improve operational efficiency and enable continued growth.
After an extensive evaluation process, Fox Mobile Distribution selected Oracle due to its real-time capability, out-of-the-box functionality and ability to rapidly support its business requirements. Fox Mobile Distribution worked with Oracle to complete the implementation in five months.
Wholly owned by News Corporation, Fox Mobile Distribution is capable of reaching more than one billion consumers around the globe with a wide offering of mobile products and services, such as games, video and made-for-mobile content. Fox Mobile Distribution delivers content in 38 countries on six continents and in more than 20 languages. Oracle’s scalable, convergent billing and revenue management application helps Fox Mobile Distribution support continued growth by adapting to diverse market demands, identifying areas for revenue growth and accelerating time-to-market for new products and offerings.
Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management enables Fox Mobile Distribution to create simplified billing plans – incorporating various payment options, product and service bundles and customer types. The real-time nature of the Oracle platform also helps Fox Mobile Distribution maximize revenue and minimize loss associated with fraud and revenue leakage – capabilities that are fundamental in driving improved margins and delivering higher quality services to customers.
Fox Mobile Distribution also benefits from improved rating. The provider has significantly reduced rating runtimes for all transactions and reduced errors by removing nearly all manual intervention in the rating process.
