Telecom Product Trial Environment
The Business Need
The AT&T AMS Product Trial Environment (PTE) allows current and potential AT&T customers to evaluate AT&T Advanced Mobility Solutions in a live production environment prior to purchase. Through a self-serve environment, customers can view product documentation, try the products and services through trial accounts, use APIs available through the production environment, and evaluate AMS products and services.
Prior to the AT&T AMS PTE, there was no product trial environment to showcase AT&T’s Advanced Solutions products. If customers requested a product trial, they would be onboarded to the partner production platform, and it usually took weeks to process the contract and paper work before the customers could use these products.
The objective of the Product Trial Environment is to increase revenue by driving sales of the existing Advanced Solutions cross-carrier products.
- Position AT&T as the leader in the enterprise segment by empowering our enterprise customers with innovative technologies
- Grow revenue by capturing a share of the growth in mobile application development
- Differentiate our offer by enabling a deeper set of technology tools, access to enterprise customers information and the ability to deploy applications on more platforms
- Reduce barriers to access AT&T tools and services.
- Reduce development complexity and drive adoption by providing a production-like environment for product trials
- Evangelize the advantages of our unique product features and value propositions
- Offering attractive services to enterprise developers and partners to build and deliver sophisticated enterprise solutions
- Increase product revenues by shortening the sales cycle and enable up-sell or cross-sell capabilities of AMS products.
Powered by the Plasma FUSION™ BPM Platform, Plasma deployed a Developer Onboarding Storefront that allows the developer to try AT&T AMS Product Trial Environment free of charge before they purchase a production license.
