Hutchison Drei Austria Inks Deal With Adaffix to Launch NameThatNumber Service to Austrian Customers

October 2, 2013

VIENNA, October 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –

– Hutchison Drei Austria to monetise missed calls via convenient caller identification
service increasing ARPU and customer retention

Mobile caller identification specialist, Adaffix [http://www.adaffix.com ]
(adaffix.com) today announced that it has partnered with Global mobile network operator,
Hutchison Drei Austria [http://www.drei.at ] (drei.at), to provide its NameThatNumber
service, increasing average revenue per user and retention rates with its Austrian
customers.

Adaffix’s proven technology enriches the mobile user experience by identifying any
caller by personal or business name after a missed call. It adds the name of the caller to
the Missed Call Notification SMS and links to a dedicated mobile site containing more
details such as the caller’s address. Users see exactly who has called them rather than an
anonymous number that resides outside of a customer’s contact book.

Integrated with Hutchison’s existing Call Completion system, NameThatNumber provides
an additional top-line revenue stream to operators who bill the service as an add-on to
standard tariffs and call procedure. Typically NameThatNumber is provisioned to the entire
customer base and charged at EUR 1 flat fee per month for limitless look-ups, or EUR 0.30
cent per query to reveal any given number identity.

Guenter Lischka, Senior Head of Marketing at Hutchison Drei Austria said:
“NameThatNumber is a great way for our customers to identify and manage their missed
calls, introducing a level of convenience that adds major value to our existing services.”

Claudia Dreier-Poepperl, CEO and founder at Adaffix said: “Our proven call
identification technology has the advantage of meeting two major priorities for carriers:
creating service differentiation that builds customer retention whilst simultaneously
growing ARPU. The deal with Hutchison 3 Austria is a significant win for us and we are
looking forward to rolling out our NameThatNumber service to its customer base throughout
Austria.”
