SonyLiv can monetise content bundles better using Evergent solution

MUMBAI: Evergent will now empower SPNI to onboard new customers for SonyLiv and monetise live sports. Its comprehensive revenue and user lifecycle management platform supports identity, entitlements, product catalogue and payments across two major media platforms and multiple devices.

Evergent Technologies, a provider of cloud-based, user lifecycle management solutions for video service providers, has announced a collaboration with Sony Pictures Network India (SPNI) and its SonyLiv premium video-on-demand (VOD) service.

This would enable Sony to expand beyond its initial push to consumers in India. With Evergent's User Lifecycle Management solution, SonyLiv can support identity, entitlements and better monetise content bundles across both live and on-demand media platforms.

SonyLiv provides multiscreen engagement on all devices to millions of users. Sony wanted to leverage that success by expanding into other geographic territories, and has selected Evergent because of its expertise in deploying a global OTT service.

As part of the collaboration, Evergent will provide identity and user management, entitlement for provisioning content access, revenue management to track global payments by product and region, and product catalogue management for personalising products, bundles and promotions across a range of devices.

"SPNI has extensive content they want to monetise and want to better manage the customer journey with a cost-effective carrier-scale platform," said Evergent's founder and CEO Vijay Sajja. "Companies today require a modern, comprehensive tool set to actively manage video delivery, billing and users accounts in flexible and compelling ways that drive customer acquisition, reduce churn, and maximize predictable revenue."

According to SPNI senior VP and head of IT and post-production Ajay Kumar Meher, "By teaming up with Evergent, we can expand our reach offering live streaming video content of select sporting events and personalize offers based on a user's profile, device or geography."
