Reversed Billed Data, Simplified
Pattern Matched Technologies™ has pioneered the reverse billing of Data URLs since 2012 and from years of experience working with our customers and the traditional operator model, have identified several crucial shortcomings. Leveraging the Obsidian™ Platform and creating a Data URL gateway that gives users access to all the critical features needed, Obsidian™ puts you in control of your reverse billing requirements and more!
By implementing Obsidian™ for your application or website, you are enabling your customers and employees to make use of an Application or URL, free of charge. You, as the enterprise, are billed directly, receiving preferential rates for the aggregated data usage.
Obsidian™ is offered across all customers – prepaid, top-up and contract. Internet access outside of the Obsidian™ environment is charged at the end user’s prevailing tariff rates.
Obsidian™ allows the end-user to make use of the Application or URL free of charge. End-users are always able to connect, irrespective of airtime/data balances and they will always have access to the website or app.
Obsidian™ can be offered on Apps and websites, in return promoting more usage and client uptake. This results in an additional value-added benefit to the customers’ company websites or applications.
