Congratulations to Orange for the Best DCB carrier winner!

Our judges' comments:

"Orange has been developing and expanding their DCB service in different regions. ‘’Pay with Orange’’ provides customers in Africa a new alternative way of making payments...Thanks to its its large presence in emerging markets, Orange has a head start on improving DCB engagement and monetisation."


Congratulations to Infobip/Centili for the Best DCB aggregator winner!

Our judges' comments:

"Centili leads through managing the payment interfaces for Merchants to ensure the roller coaster revenue effect is levelled and enabling Carriers to open billing solutions ahead of their own implementation of Carrier Billing platforms...They have been contributing to DCB service and continually developing new services."


Congratulations to Bango for winning the most innovative DCB technology award for their Bango DCB platform in Japan!

Our judges' comments:

"Being able to buy physical goods is the final frontier for DCB and key to unlocking its full potential. Bango’s  Amazon Japan use case is a great example of this....The availability of carrier billing in the Amazon Japan store takes DCB to a new level."
