Service Innovation

Use Service Innovation to unlock growth by moving communications into the context of apps or websites

With Nokia Service Innovation you can provide richer and more compelling communication services by adding contextual voice, video, chat, and share features contextually to applications, websites, and connected objects. Our solution will turn your IMS communication network into a cloud and programmable platform for service innovation.

Our easy-to-use network-side and WebRTC client-side communications APIs and SDKs enable developers to embed communication and collaboration functions into the context of apps and websites. It lets them put the conversation right where and when it’s needed.

Communicate in the flow

Contextual communications tailor services to users as they are performing actions within apps and browsers. They also enrich services with information that comes from various  sources, including:

  • Personal information (e.g., device, apps, browsed pages)
  • Enterprise information (e.g., CRM records, X.500 directory)
  • IoT objects (e.g., beacons, sensors, home appliances)
  • Big data (e.g., crowd-sourced data, public information, analytics)

Improve enterprise communications

Contextual communications will enrich our personal lives, but it may have the greatest value at work.

In productivity tools, contextual communications will improve business agility by helping employees make better decisions faster. Embedded in enterprise apps and web sites by internal developers, contextual communications will help enterprises improve the customer experience and strengthen their brands.

Monetize contextual communications

Communications service providers can use our Service Innovation solution to improve their retail offers and differentiate with new services. They can also use the solution to evolve their wholesale services from standalone communications services to contextual communications embedded in third-party apps, websites, and Internet of Things-connected objects.
