Digitata Limited Acquires Rorotika Technologies
PORT LOUIS, MAURITIUS, 21 SEPTEMBER 2015: Digitata Limited is pleased to announce that they have recently acquired a controlling stake in long-time partner company, Rorotika Technologies Ltd.
Since its inception in 2008, Digitata Limited has worked hand-in-hand with our partner, Rorotika Technologies, who provides development and support services for Digitata’s Dynamic Tariffing™ solution, the first and leading dynamic tariffing™ solution for voice, SMS and data.
Regarding the acquisition of Rorotika Technologies, Mr Ted Bartlett, CEO of Digitata Limited said: “Following years of successful collaboration, the joining of Digitata and Rorotika was a logical next step in the relationship between the two companies, and we look forward to bringing the services and products provided by Rorotika into the Digitata fold and under the Digitata brand. The joining of the two companies will ensure a closer working relationship and will allow us to improve our service to our customers, to expand our product offering and to streamline our operations.”
Mr Tinus Neethling, CEO of Rorotika Technologies Limited said: “Rorotika is pleased to be joining forces with long-time partner, Digitata Limited. The two companies have worked effectively side by side for so long that the success of this venture is already assured, and we look forward to moving ahead under the Digitata banner”.
Besides offering improved efficiencies in our world-leading Dynamic Tariffing™ product and service offering, the acquisition brings with it other lines of business that will be of interest and benefit to Digitata’s Mobile Network Operator customers.
These include a sophisticated, vendor-agnostic network configuration management solution (NetCM) from the forward-looking Rorotika Networks (now Digitata Networks) to transparently manage and troubleshoot all major mobile technologies (2G, 3G, LTE, Wi-Fi) and multi-domains (Core, RAN, TX). The solution offers operators cost savings through improved efficiencies gained by automating auditing, planning, optimising, configuration and operational activities.
In addition, innovative Rorotika subsidiary, Rorotika Mobile will now fall under the Digitata brand too. There are clear synergies between this mobile gaming offering and Digitata’s own MeMe Mobile offering and the marrying of the two concepts under one brand will facilitate both reach and deep engagement with mobile subscribers in emerging markets, though fun, selected content and competition.
Mr Bartlett, CEO of Digitata Limited also wishes to reassure Rorotika customers that the Rorotika product range will continue to be offered, improved and supported under the Digitata brand, serviced by the same highly-skilled team of experts that they have come to trust.
