The mobile revolution
Consumers covet the latest technology, but the cost of being an early adopter is prohibitive. That's where we come in. Our device finance solution allows your customers to spread the cost of their device purchase while you achieve sustainable revenue collections and cash flow. It's a win-win.
In December 2021 new mobile and device finance regulations were introduced in the UK. This meant mobile providers had to seperate device finance from the airtime contract.
Ofcom also set out rules around greater transparency and fairness for the customer. These included the right to be informed before contracts ended and the ability to switch providers with just a text message.
Devices that could require finance include:
Laptops and tablets
Ear pods such as airpods
Wearable tech e.g; AI glasses
The premium price for being the first in line means the device cost is often too expensive as a one-off purchase. Providers have had to adapt to ensure their solutions and platforms meet the new regulatory requirements.
The market opportunity
As a result of regulation and market forces, customers may choose to spread the cost of device purchases. Mobile providers now require Loan Management Software (LMS), to ensure device finance is separated from airtime or SIM-only plans, completely transforming the customer experience.
The legacy challenge
The cost to develop, deploy or maintain new or existing Loan Management Systems (LMS) in-house is challenging. Either it's too costly, time-consuming or in-house development teams lack the required capacity or skillset.
Additionally, some providers have realised that legacy systems are not easy to flex or scale to meet changing requirements.
