Amp'd chooses local Amdocs division

Posted by Tricia Duryee at 11:28 AM

Amdocs said today that the entertainment-focused Amp'd Mobile has signed a multi-year agreement to use the Qpass digital commerce platform for managing third-party content.

St. Louis-based Amdocs added the platform to its offerings after purchasing Seattle-based Qpass for $275 million in April.

The companies said that by centralizing all of Amp'd's digital commerce functions with Amdocs, subscribers will be able to access new content and services, including premium text messaging, chat, voting and personalization applications.

Mike McSherry, Amp'd's senior vice president of emerging technologies said: "We are continually looking for ways to bring new and exciting content and services to our customers and partnering with Amdocs helps us meet that goal."

Amdocs' Qpass platform will offer promotions management, payments, customer care, financial reporting and settlement for Amp'd and its third-party merchants, including retailers and entertainment companies selling premium content services.
