One Horizon Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: OHGI)'s business is to optimize communications over the Internet through its wholly owned subsidiary, Horizon Globex GmbH, Baar, which develops and markets one of the world's most bandwidth-efficient mobile voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) platforms for smartphones, and also offers a range of other optimized data applications including messaging and mobile advertising. Horizon Globex GmbH is an ISO 9001 and ISO 20000-1 certified company. SNNLive spoke with Brian Collins, CEO of One Horizon Group, Inc. at the SeeThruEquity Winter MicroCap Conference 2015 in New York City, NY.
Mr. Collins begins with an overview of the company, “One Horizon Group is a software company founded back in Switzerland back – all the way back in 1999. We develop proprietary software for mobile operators predominately which is a voice-over IP solution that we offer as a white label system to big operators globally, mainly in Southeast Asia at the moment, it’s our biggest marketplace that we have today and we’re pushing more and more, you know we did up-listing...into North American and Latin American markets and hopefully Africa, India and we’re now in a great position in China as you probably saw from the news yesterday.” (Press Release - February 4th, 2015)
He then explains One Horizon’s technology and how they differ from other similar companies, “Our secret sauce in particular was the fact that we built this system really from the ground up for mobile wireless communication. Voice-over IP traditionally was built for Ethernet-type communication which is wired, fix wired. Mobile phones as we all know suffer from congestion, dropped calls and all these other things so we invented a technology that allows the voice-over IP to be a much higher quality, much lower bandwidth and also much less consumption on the actual handset for your battery and so on. So you can talk for longer, better quality but that has to be done from the ground up and that’s what we do. We’re a software engineering company, we’ve engineered this solution from the ground up and delivered it as a turnkey package.”
He concludes, “You leverage technology, that’s what we do best and we do it really from ourselves, we build it all in-house. When the product works, we take all the credit and when the product fails, we take all the blame. We own it from start to finish and it’s very important for us because we don’t use other people’s software, we don’t use the open source community – which is a great community, but we don’t use their software. We have engineers, scientists and so on that work for us who went to University for 4,6,10 years, why would we use other people’s software? So we build it ourselves in-house and we deliver it and our customers love the fact that we can do this end-to-end as a solution that if they say look we need another bit of innovation or could you change this or what about that? That’s what we do together, we work and these relationships with operators are 5-year deals as a minimum.” For more information, check out their website: www.OneHorizonGroup.com
