The first two weeks of March are typically the Spring Break period for U.S. colleges. Given that students are among the biggest consumers of prepaid minutes, it's a great time for wireless retailers to sell ePins.
And with the recent launch of AT&T and Verizon’s real-time replenishment (RTR) prepaid integration, selling eprepaid minutes just got a lot easier.
Previously, it was simple enough to use the integrated ePin service -- sell a SKU, print a pin. But since the RTR update, we've been getting great feedback from clients about how it works.
A topic we've blogged about for some time has been how -- with ready, mobile access to pricing, product and inventory information -- today's consumer has more control over buying decisions than ever before.
It should come as no surprise, then, as we look ahead to the world's largest consumer electronics tradeshow (CES 2013, kicking off on Tuesday) that there will be a lot of attention paid to consumer experiences.
It's always fun to be amongst our customers, some of whom are the largest wireless retailers in the country, and it is even more fun when that gathering is hosted by our good friends at BuyCell Wireless Group. Under the leaderhip of Ted Benoit, BuyCell Group has grown to be the largest and most influential wireless buying organization in the U.S.
Anyone who says they don’t like the Motor City hasn’t been there in a while.
Detroit is making a comeback and the vibrant and upgraded downtown area is a testament to the people of this great city. Moorehead Communications recently held regional meetings at the Athenium Suites Hotel in the Heart of Greektown in downtown Detroit, and I (Ken Burdon, iQmetrix Field Relations Manager) was there.
In this era of “latest and greatest” it’s a snap to get a new mobile phone. With app and contact migration easier than ever, many of us are acquiring a new cell phone every year or two. But what happens to your old mobile once you’ve transferred all your data over to the new one? If you’re like me, you promptly forget about them, then over the years find them squirreled away in the strangest spots (the car, the junk drawer, the closet). It’s almost inevitable given this high turnover that an appalling number of old cellular phones just wind up tossed in the garbage. The numbers are staggering. In the United States alone, 350,000 cell phones are dumped in landfills every day making electronic waste one of the fastest-growing types of garbage in America.
