mopay Strengthens its Presence in Asia with Two New Offices

mopay, a leader in mobile payment solutions for online merchants, today announced its continued global expansion with two new representative offices in Asia. Located in Seoul, Korea and Jakarta, Indonesia, mopay’s expanded presence will support Asian online merchants to grow internationally. Since establishing its regional headquarter in Beijing in 2010, mopay has succeeded in building a well-trusted payment brand among Asian merchants, acquiring over 100 new clients in the region, including Tencent, Shanda Interactive and Changyou. Today, mopay is working with nine out of China’s top ten online game companies.

Asia has dominated the mobile payments market and now represents 40 percent of all mobile payment users worldwide, more than 2.5 times as many as North America, according to Gartner. Direct operator billing is especially popular with online gamers and ranks among the top three preferred payment methods for virtual good transactions in Asia/Pacific.

To expand internationally, Asian merchants are increasingly looking for a partner who understands the importance of a convenient, customized checkout process that can help achieve the highest possible conversion rates. mopay’s new offices are staffed with experienced payment professionals, providing the knowledge that enables online content providers to gain traction in the Americas, Europe and the Middle East.

Nora Qiao, Channel Department Manager at Koram Games, a webgame market leader in Asia with subsidiaries in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea and Malaysia and over 100 million users globally, expressed, “mopay’s in-depth experience as a carrier billing provider is unparalleled in the industry. We have a clear edge over our competition thanks to mopay’s sophisticated billing technology. mopay helped us tremendously in expanding our business overseas.”

“Asia’s online merchants maintain an impressive tradition of providing quality online content that attracts millions of users both locally and internationally,” said Kolja Reiss, mopay’s Managing Director in the US. “The recent opening of two new offices marks just another step in mopay’s ongoing expansion in Asia. mopay has future plans to open two more offices within the next twelve months to further solidify its carrier relations in Asia and provide additional client representatives in the region.”

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
