billwerk established a dedicated productive system for waipu.tv in the EXARING AG data centre. Furthermore, billwerk helps with deploying fix capacities in development and support.

EXARING AG’s fibre-optic cable network in Germany runs for over 12,000 kilometres and is therefore twice as long as the Great Wall of China. The EXARING product waipu.tv uses this gigantic infrastructure to offer IPTV streamed in ultra-HD. This makes EXARING AG the world’s only provider to use a ‘single purpose’ fibre-optic network exclusively for IPTV.

  • “In billwerk, we have found a reliable partner for the administration and billing of our subscription model, allowing us to concentrate entirely on our core business. The collaboration with billwerk is smooth and the team responds quickly, ensuring short cycles from the requestto the provision of new features.”

REQUIREMENTS AND SOLUTIONS

TO ENABLE RELEVANT PAYMENT METHODS ON SHORT NOTICE

Solution: Integration of billwerk and the payment services provider PAYONE was implemented inside of four weeks, allowing a rapid time-to-market. waipu.tv was quickly able to offer its customers all relevant payment methods (SEPA, credit card and PayPal).

DESIGN AND BILLING OF FLEXIBLE PRODUCTS

billwerk supports the entire freemium subscription model – including trial phases and coupon-based marketing campaigns. Christian Storch continues: “The flexible subscription billing model allows us to learn from our customers and to adapt our products quickly to suit their needs.”

HIGH ADAPTABILITY

The developer and support team at billwerk operates with quick response times and is able to deliver new features on short notice. A RESTful API was used for integration.
