DUBLIN, Ireland – April 25, 2012 – Openet, a leading provider of Service Optimization Software (SOS) to tier one communications service providers, has today announced the availability of their Interaction Gateway (IG) solution. This API enabled solution was developed to power Openet’s Subscriber Engagement Engine which provides real-time access to service providers’ back office systems to enable real-time purchases, controls and personalised offers direct on the handset.
