Vserv, the smart data platform for mobile marketing in India and Southeast Asia, today announced its entry into the burgeoning commerce space. Vserv will now provide an end-to-end solution for Telcos and DTH operators, right from discovery of customers to transaction of services.

With this added capability, Vserv will enable Telcos to promote segmented offers across data and voice. By driving these transactions, Vserv enhances ARPU for Telcos.

Commenting on the launch of the commerce solution for Telcos and DTH, Dippak Khurana, Co-Founder & CEO, Vserv said, “We saw the opportunity to redefine relevance, simplicity and convenience of these services for the customer.
