Consorteum Holdings, Inc. (CSRH) Thin Client Server, UMI & Hybrid Applications Mobile Content Delivery Platform Easily Cuts Across Sectors

Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

Consorteum Holdings has put together a remarkable mix of mobile technologies, partnerships and licensing agreements, placing the company at the forefront of a variety of potential solution development markets like mobile compliance gaming, e-commerce/banking, mobile healthcare, and mobile government. At the core of it all is a thin-client architecture and proprietary UMI (Universal Mobile Interface) which hurdle two fundamental obstacles in the world of mobile computing: device-specific processing limitations and the need to maintain/update client-side versioning. Of course, the UMI also makes it easier for customers to deliver rich content to the user’s device without having to jump through all the time-sink and complexity issue hoops that crop up when you are developing for a standalone execution.

The UMI, developed by CSRH’s wholly-owned subsidiary, ThreeFiftyNine Inc. (359), is a marvel of universalized content delivery, as it is able to simply take whatever content the customer has designed, identify the user’s mobile device and then render everything in the appropriate display format. This allows developers to code once and publish everywhere, rather than trying to laboriously recode the application to meet device-specific requirements, a process which otherwise must also be done every time they want to push a new version to clients.

This capability is especially useful in the mobile gaming market, which is on-track to reach from $22B to $26B globally within the next two years alone. One of the keys to attracting gamers and keeping them engaged with a given product is feature-rich content and gorgeous graphics. A difficult task to execute effectively on its own, this task is made all the more difficult if costly development uptime is taken away from core content and spent coding for various device specifications. The UMI allows developers to focus on making the game they want and making it look/feel great, instead of trying to make sure that their vision isn’t ruined by device-specific limitations or an inability to execute the crucial user interface elements effectively on a given set of devices.

The thin-client architecture, which uses a remote server and cloud computing framework to alleviate the heavy computational lifting otherwise required to be performed on the user’s device, also gives developers considerable breathing room to create powerful applications with high-resolution graphics, without slowing down the user’s device inordinately or placing a given application out of the reach of older devices. A Thin Client Server platform like the one employed by CSRH’s platform also allows for improved security, presenting developers with a pipelining solution that makes the platform ideal for mobile compliance gaming. Fully leveraging the power of a hybrid application format, which uses a web app combined with a native client wrapper, Thin Client Server applications have the power to transform the world of real money mobile gambling. The company’s platform is one of a select few cleared by the gold standard in regulatory gaming, the Nevada Gaming Board, and opens up the world of sports and horse betting as well as casino games like keno and video blackjack to a vast, growing market of mobile users.

This same platform capability allows for some compelling opportunities in the world of mobile healthcare and mobile government as well, two other areas where security and the ability to deliver feature-rich content in real-time (without a ton of updating hassle) are paramount. Take mobile healthcare for instance, a world where health record data security is of increasing concern, what with HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) data breaches reaching record numbers. Office for Civil Rights (OCR) reportage at the recent OCR/NIST Conference on Safeguarding Health Information indicated that, this year alone there have been nearly 12M health data record breaches (according to Health and Human Services), including the record-breaking 4.5M Community Health Systems (CHS) breach in August.

Addresses, birth dates, names, social security and telephone numbers were all stolen in the breach at CHS, the second largest for-profit healthcare hospital system in the U.S. as of last year. Needless to say there is massive demand that is simply not being met for a more comprehensive approach to securing such data. A combination of shrewd encryption and mobile platforms, like the one offered by CSRH, could go a long ways towards addressing the problem.

The same concerns and platform benefits exist in the world of mobile government computing, where a combination of huge paperwork volumes (even larger than in healthcare in some cases), diverse logistics, a strong need for security and a persistent lack of accessibility, have created a perfect storm of opportunities. Moreover, the UMI platform’s sophisticated geo-location and geo-fencing capabilities, already proven in the world of compliance gaming, offers a ready means to create true logistical situational awareness for government entities, mapping personnel and equipment from all over the globe in real-time.

Consorteum Holdings, Inc. (CSRH) Focuses on Hybrid Applications for Mobile Gaming

Thursday, October 16th, 2014

The online and mobile gambling market is growing by leaps and bounds. The global market for gambling wagers made via mobile devices—in fact, for all forms of mobile and online gambling—is expected to grow by billions over the next few years. This trend toward increased mobile gambling supports the need for a mobile platform to meet new and existing compliance regulations.

Consorteum Holdings has developed an advanced Universal Mobile Interface (UMI) that addresses the challenges facing compliance in the mobile gaming industry. Naturally, this sector is one of Consorteum’s primary areas of focus. The company recognizes that it has a competitive advantage because it has one of the first third-party-developed, regulatory-compliant mobile platforms for the delivery of gaming content, and it plans to capitalize on this first-to-market opportunity.

Content managers in security-sensitive industries, like gambling, have only a few mobile access options to consider. There are:

• Web Applications – They are accessed through a device’s mobile browser and provide a minimal user experience, restrictive content management, nonexistent security or compliance capability but do represent a low cost solution.

• Native Applications – They are resident on a mobile device, offer an exceptional user experience, minimal content management, high level of compliant security and have high reoccurring costs associated with hardware, operation system and content changes

• Hybrid Applications – A hybrid application, also called a thin client server application, is a web solution wrapped in a native application. The hybrid application offers an excellent user experience, the highest provision for content management, a high level of compliant security and comes at a lower cost – due to low reoccurring costs associated with its “develop once, deploy many” times architecture.

When a client’s interactions contain sensitive information, due to security restrictions, there are only two choices; native applications which require continual expensive reprogramming or a hybrid application where content management and device updates are not interdependent.

Through its subsidiary, ThreeFiftyNine, Consorteum is able to offer hybrid applications to clients. Built on a mobile platform, ThreeFiftyNine’s UMI offers a powerful solution for an economical investment. The platform allows developers to create, update and modify content while it maintains the device integration as well as content delivery and display. The company’s hybrid mobile interface provides for geo-location, geo-fencing, security and e-commerce while utilizing the native functionality of individual mobile devices. Mobile users only need to download the application once and the UMI delivers the content regardless of OS updates, new content or web site enhancements; this is the platform’s “develop once, deploy many” solution for mobile content.

Consorteum Holdings, Inc. (CSRH) Delivers Advanced Mobile Solutions

Thursday, October 9th, 2014

Consorteum helps businesses connect with customers. Companies who use the company’s fast mobile solutions can also benefit from unparalleled customer service and program documentation. ThreeFiftyNine, one of Consorteum’s wholly-owned subsidiaries, has developed a Universal Mobile Interface (UMI) that offers unmatched flexibility and advanced security options.

Flexibility

ThreeFiftyNine’s UMI platform allows content providers to develop and deploy their content to mobile devices while it identifies the mobile device being used and delivers the right display format for that device. The customer provides the mobile display content while ThreeFiftyNine delivers it with its UMI platform, allowing mobile content providers to reach the broadest customer base.

Without a universal platform, content providers have to reprogram their mobile application every time they update or add to their content; or a mobile device’s operating system is updated. ThreeFiftyNine’s UMI platform is the first available universal mobile content delivery solution that is based on web-standards and carrier-agnostic, operating system-agnostic, and device-agnostic.

Security

Mobile content providers have a number of ways of presenting their content to mobile users. Their content can be mobile web available, resident on mobile devices or a combination of both. Usually, client content resides on client servers from where the content is accessed by mobile devices. For general information such as advertising, social media and event information, security issues are not important. When personal information and financial transactions are included in the client information however, security is critical.

ThreeFiftyNine addresses client security requirements by separating the client’s servers from the mobile devices. The subsidiary has developed a “Thin Client Server” platform to deliver client content in the proper mobile device format, regardless of the mobile device. Because the platform handles the mobile interface providing the optimal display to each mobile device, the application only needs to be downloaded to the mobile device once, irrespective of client updates or content additions, therefore limiting the chances of security breaches.

Healthcare Data Security Lacking Muscle; Consorteum Holdings, Inc. (CSRH) has the Fix

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

We see a lot of buzz about online security when it comes to bank and personal identification data, but not much about the security of our healthcare information. According to the Ponemon Institute, however, in 2014 more organizations reported a higher frequency and number of data breaches than the year prior. The same report shows that nearly 39 million individuals have had their “protected” healthcare information compromised in security and privacy breaches since 2009.

The good news is that the uptick in breaches has subsequently triggered a prioritization of data breach prevention. The bad news is that the 2014 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report shows that healthcare organizations are behind the curve when it comes to implementing efficient privacy and security measures.

While concerns of healthcare security go unseen by the majority of us, recent data breaches at Target, Home Depot and several other large companies shed light on the magnitude and severity of compromised security. In response many relatively unknown companies are stepping forward with innovative technology capable of turning the tide.

Specializing in the delivery of mobile content, mobile payment solutions and products through strategic partnerships, license agreements, and joint ventures, Consorteum Holdings offers mobile initiatives that benefit multiple business verticals; among them, mobile health care.

Consorteum’s 359 Thin Client Server / Hybrid Mobile Application, provides the HIPPA-required security for health care transactions. Another perk of the technology? Cost savings. By nature, the health care industry is extremely labor and record intensive, which translates into expensive. Consorteum’s solution, developed by its 359 subsidiary, allows patients secure access to their own medical information, thereby minimizing unnecessary expenses.

359 also developed Consorteum’s Universal Mobile Interface (UMI) platform, the first universal mobile content delivery solution available that is based on web-standards and is carrier, operating system, and device agnostic. The UMI platform could include optimized patient data processing and reduced costs as in the following examples:

• Secure account access and mobile health records (Clients can success appointment and results information as well as review health records)
• Medication notifications and automatic refills (It is often critical that medications not be combined, mobile records could save lives)
• Real-time insurance co-pay information for prescriptions
• Records update for emergency personnel (Having access to a patient’s medical history will save time and assist in emergency treatment)
• Non-emergency medical inquiries (Medical practitioners can avoid expense visits by interacting with patients online or mobile)

Verizon’s report shows that the biggest sources of breaches in the healthcare industry is loss or theft of employee’s devices (laptops, hard drives, USB drives, etc.), further compounded by a lack of encryption. By putting patients at the center of their own healthcare information, Consorteum offers healthcare providers a way to reduce labor costs while mitigating the risk of security breach among their staff.

Consorteum Holdings, Inc. (CSRH) Pipelining Solutions for Mobile Gaming Come into Focus as Market Goes Supernova

Wednesday, September 24th, 2014

According to the latest Pew Research data on the U.S. mobile market, upwards of 58% of all Americans own a smartphone (some 42% of Americans own a tablet computer) and gaming is the hottest vector in the space, so hot in fact that adult women now make up 48% of the gaming market, largely on the strength of smartphone proliferation. Market research by NewZoo and AppLift have pegged the mobile gaming market phenomenology quite well with a $24B projection by 2016. A forecast that tracks well with the Gartner data, which also has the mobile gaming space doubling over a short period of time, with a revenue prediction suggesting the market will expand from the roughly $13.2B seen last year, to around $22B in 2015.

Either way, it seems clear that mobile gaming is an extremely hot market, with growth in Brazil, China, and India dominating the upward trend. Perhaps Morgan Stanley read the tea leaves best in describing Microsoft’s (NASDAQ:MSFT) $2.5B acquisition last week of Swedish indie developer Mojang AB, who made the smash hit Minecraft, as a smart move for the company’s Xbox business. But look at the fact that Minecraft is also the top paid app on both Android and iOS, where 40% of the game’s downloads occur, and you will realize the move is about much more than the console or PC markets, MSFT is moving to gain a sizeable foothold in mobile gaming here and industry analysts are starting to take note. Such games have an immediate appeal that cuts across language barriers (beside which, in-game multilanguage technology has come a long ways, making it easy to publish once for multiple languages irrespective of game engine in most cases) and the mega-hot Chinese mobile gaming market, set to grow a whopping 93% this year alone (projected 37.6% CAGR through 2018) according to market intelligence firm, Niko Partners, is a juicy target, especially considering AppLift/NewZoo’s data pegging China as 12% of the global market last year.

This portrait of the mobile gaming market brings players like Consorteum Holdings (CSRH) under a bright light indeed and the diligent work executed by CSRH in particular over the last few years, seamlessly tying together a network of key relationship and licensing agreements, is a compelling subject for the savvy investor to study. CSRH is a mobile solutions provider with the kind of rich transaction experience needed to move the ball down the field revenue-wise and acts as a support player/publishing and distribution enabler. Moreover, the company’s UMI (Universal Mobile Interface) solution is a verticals-spanning powerhouse technology that supercharges CSRH’s mastery of mobile payment/transaction solutions and content delivery.

Naturally, the transaction management and mobile solutions prowess of CSRH lends itself directly to the gambling end of the gaming spectrum and the company has wasted little time enmeshing themselves therein, utilizing a bold marketing and technology strategy that is designed to revolutionize the space. CSRH’s wholly-owned ThreeFiftyNine Inc. subsidiary (359) for instance is the only 3rd party developer cleared by the Nevada Gaming Commission (NGC). 359’s client-server application has been vetted successfully by the NGC and thanks to the company’s proprietary UMI platform, complete Geo-fencing and Geo-location compliance has been satisfied.

Of course, in this market, security is always a top watchword and the in-depth security capabilities of the company’s hybrid client-server app makes it very appealing for a pipeline solution to get gaming content onto mobile user’s devices. 359 uses a thin-client application to integrate a gaming provider’s backend with the company’s own client-server framework, pumping the content out for delivery and display, eliminating the cost and complexity for gaming providers related to updating device applications due to new code or new devices. The implications are staggering for anyone who understands the casino gaming space and gambling market in general. From mobile lottery and offerings like the Stations Casino’s Sportsbook application for sports and horse betting, to keno and casino games like video blackjack, the UMI approach to getting content to customers is lightweight but powerful.

A striking example of how agile CSRH can be came in May this year with the completion of development work on a mobile results app for live Keno with partner XpertX, Inc., which is seen as one of the industry leaders in Keno gaming today. The partners pulled off a comprehensive architecture from game server and feature integration, to publishing and distribution, including various support services like database management and hosting, in short time, leading XpertX founder and President, Eric Thomassian, to be extremely optimistic about live Keno being brought to mobile gaming in a jurisdiction-tuned fashion. Consorteum Holdings’ recent mobile app development contract signed between their 359 subsidiary and BetButler parent company, Bet Clearer Ltd., likely could’ve saved BetButler. Whose sizeable customer database is now up for grabs, with plans to settle with customers via a new company with “no conditions on withdrawal,” according to a Bet Clearer spokesman.

Consorteum Holdings, Inc. (CSRH) – Pioneering Mobile Compliance Gaming Solutions

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

Consorteum delivers innovation with specification. For the last three years, Consorteum has focused on developing licensing agreements and relationships that will allow it to take center stage in the fast growing mobile gaming market.

359, a Consorteum subsidiary, has demonstrated expertise in mobile platforms for compliance gaming by providing one of the best mobile solutions for lottery experts and any compliance gaming application. 359 is also the only third-party developer for compliance gaming that the Nevada Gaming Commission has approved.

One of 359’s offerings is SportsConnection.com, a mobile sports book application developed with Stations Casinos. The Stations project called for 359 to meet the Nevada Gaming Commission’s benchmarks for Geo-location, Geo-fencing, secure commerce and secure application performance.

Working with Stations’ development team, 359 brought the first compliance gaming mobile product, built on a third party mobile platform, to market. 359 provides the protocol and interface for the backend of Stations’ Sportsbook. Utilizing a proprietary Universal Mobile Interface (UMI) mobile platform, 359 provides the Geo-fencing and Geo-location required for the compliance gaming application. In addition, its hybrid client server application provides the in-depth security that is critical for gaming applications.

As a third-party mobile platform provider, 359 seamlessly integrates its server with its client’s (the gaming provider) backend. 359 then handles any mobile device interaction for content delivery and display. By doing that, 359’s thin client application relieves the gaming provider from having to constantly update the mobile device application software for new devices or release device upgrades and changes in gaming content. All in all, the 359 application model assists gaming operators with their marketing strategy for inclusion in current and future mobile devices, saving them both time to market and money.

Consorteum and 359 envision lucrative opportunities within these mobile gaming business sectors:

• Casino Games: Slots and video card games

• Mobile Lottery: Ticket purchase, scratch games, and results

• Multiplayer Games: Poker and Black Jack

• Sports Book: Bet placement, odds comparison, real time in-play betting, and results

Consorteum Holdings, Inc. (CSRH) On-Ramping Public and Private Brands Securely into Mobile Marketplace

Tuesday, September 9th, 2014

Consorteum Holdings is focused on getting company brands on mobile platforms so that they can take advantage of and thrive in the white-hot digital sales marketplace. The company meets customer needs by offering ways to develop comprehensive card and payment transaction processing solutions. A core characteristic of Consorteum is that it delivers mobile content, mobile payment solutions and mobile products through license agreements using venture revenue sharing arrangements with its partners.

The company’s mobile solutions combine a Hybrid Mobile Application with a Thin Client Server platform. This combination enables it to deliver Thin Client Applications to mobile devices. Its Universal Mobile Interface (UMI) solution cultivates business opportunities in sectors such as healthcare, government, e-commerce and banking.

In the public sector, today’s governments generate excessive amounts of paperwork and consider employee payroll one of its heaviest operating expenses. Adding mobile access to government departments would improve accessibility which in turn would lead to shrinking backlogs and reducing costs. Due to the sensitive nature of citizen’s information, the company’s 359 Thin Client Server / Hybrid Mobile Application would provide the security required for governmental transactions.

Resource allocation is also vital for government operations. The UMI platform’s Geo-Location maps personnel and equipment in real time. Under emergency conditions resource mapping has proven to save lives. Under normal circumstances, efficient use of personnel and equipment also reduces operating expenses.

In the e-commerce and banking sector, security is the top priority for mobile financial transactions and information access. The 359 UMI and the Thin Client Server / Hybrid Mobile Application, provides the appropriate amount of security. One capability is that it can play an integral part in warding off issues like identity theft. The UMI platform will allow mobile users to restrict their financial transactions by of geo-fencing their own transactions or allowing only specific transactions to occur. The end result is that customers will have access to real-time updates on all of their accounts in a secure, mobile environment.

Consorteum Holdings, Inc. (CSRH) – Mobile Solutions for Diverse Businesses

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014

Many of today’s consumers shop and buy online. Those in their 20s and 30s are especially driving the modern-day technology agenda with their intensifying online shopping habits. Consequently, for a company to survive and thrive nowadays, it has to be present in the digital space.

Consorteum Holdings is committed to bridging the mobile divide for businesses. Realizing that a mobile presence is no longer a luxury but a necessity for a business, the company strives to extend business brands onto mobile platforms.

Consorteum has extensive experience in the global payment and transaction industry and meets its clients’ needs by offering various tools used to develop end-to-end, turn-key card and payment transaction processing solutions. In particular, Consorteum is known for delivering mobile content, mobile payment solutions and mobile products through license agreements, on-deck partnerships and joint-venture revenue sharing arrangements.

Consorteum’s mobile solutions combine a Hybrid Mobile Application with a Thin Client Server platform, allowing it to deliver Thin Client Applications to mobile devices. Furthermore, its Universal Mobile Interface (UMI) solution is creating opportunities in multiple business sectors, including the healthcare, governmental, e-commerce and banking fields.

Health Care

Through its subsidiary 359, Consorteum offers the Thin Client Server/Hybrid Mobile Application which provides the high level of security needed for sensitive mobile health care information and transactions.

The health care industry is, by nature, labor- and record-intensive, both of which can be expensive. By offering patients secure access to their medical information through a UMI solution, health care institutions can lower their avoidable expenses while optimizing the processing of patient data.

Government

359’s Thin Client Server/Hybrid Mobile Application provides the security necessary for governmental transactions and the sensitive and personal nature of citizen information. For example, the UMI platform’s geo-location can map personnel and equipment in real time. Under emergency conditions, the efficient use of personnel and equipment can help save lives; under normal circumstances, it can significantly lower operating expenses.

Governments today also face a number of obstacles that prevent their efficient operation. They generate huge amounts of paperwork. Their employees are a major operating expense and, in certain countries, government officials are not accessible to most citizens. Adding mobile access to governmental operations would alleviate backlogs, make officials more accessible and help to lessen costs

E-Commerce and Banking

Security is the No. 1 priority for mobile financial transactions and information access. The 359 UMI, in conjunction with the Thin Client Server / Hybrid Mobile Application, provides the appropriate amount of security for such sensitive transactions.

Identity theft is also a major concern for financial customers and institutions. The UMI platform will allow mobile users to restrict their financial transactions; they can either geo-fence their own transactions or allow only specific transactions. At the same time, customers will have access to real-time updates on all of their accounts.

Consorteum Holdings, Inc. (CSRH): A Pioneering Force in Rapidly Evolving World of Mobile Gaming

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014

Consorteum Holdings is poised to profit off the burgeoning mobile gaming market with an adept software marketing and licensing strategy. Having built a network of key relationships and licensing agreements over the last few years, CSRH is now in ready to carve off a sizeable chunk of this market, which is growing so fast that projections vary considerably from analyst to analyst.

The Gartner report from October of last year pegs the 2013 mobile gaming market at around $13.2B globally and estimates a doubling by 2015 to around $22B. That same report also identified mobile to be the fastest growing segment of the $93B video game market, which is pegged as growing at 20% YoY by the recent SuperData Research analysis, with China approaching and even set to overtake the U.S. market in coming years ($3B and $3.2B respectively for 2013). Meanwhile, the mobile gaming market’s impact in countries like Russia, which has seen an 800% leap in the last three years according to Mail.ru Group and Newzoo, illustrates further just how white-hot the sector is.

Moreover, the demographics of mobile gaming are changing rapidly as well. Even as some 86% of time the average user spends on their mobile device is now in apps, mostly gaming (clearly telegraphing the app revolution’s metrics), recent data from Flurry shows that women are more likely to do in-app purchasing, while being some 35% more likely to also keep right on gaming as their male counterparts log off (women have a 42% retention rate as well according to Flurry). The viral success of the Kim Kardshain Hollywood game, which blew industry expectations out of the water, generating upwards of $1.6M in the first five days (largely through in-app purchases), shows not only how far women have progressed into the territory of mobile gaming, it shows how in-app advertising is the real revenue story.

The mobile platform employed by CSRH’s wholly-owned subsidiary, ThreeFiftyNine (“359”), is ideal for mobile gaming, in that it utilizes a thin-client architecture (as opposed to typical native apps), where a great deal of the computational or information processing workload is handled via the remote server. This thin-client architecture results in an improved user experience, greater fluidity and response from the app. The server does the lion’s share of the heavy lifting when it comes to content, overcoming any specific hardware/OS or performance limitations of the user’s mobile device when it comes to running the app, fully leveraging the company’s sophisticated Universal Mobile Interface (UMI) to ensure consistency across devices and deliver display content optimally. The UMI is the first content delivery engine for mobile engineered around web-standards to be carrier/OS/device agnostic and represents an excellent pipeline solution for shoving content out to user’s devices. This develop once/deploy anywhere pipeline solution is a Godsend to developers and users alike; developers can focus on creating great content and not worry about how it’ll end up displayed, and users get great gaming experiences.

Further enabled by a robust cloud architecture, 359’s mobile platform is able to offer users an experience driven by on-demand remote resources, improving app performance and allowing for a gaming experience that is right at home in the emerging age of streamed gaming, where companies like NVIDIA Corp. (NASDAQ: NVDA) and Kinoni (with their KinoConsole) are already making huge waves on the PC gaming side of the industry. Mobile gaming has stepped to the forefront as the major disruptive force in apps, with the Google, Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOGL) Play Store and Apple, Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) AppStore clearly indicating the revenue dynamics of gaming apps and in-app purchasing.

The iron is indeed hot for CSRH to continue striking, as they recently did with the Bet Butler parent company, Bet Clearer, development contract, which is designed to have 359 roll out an app for their existing betting concierge service in Q4 this year for UK markets (with other markets soon to follow thereafter). A superb use of the 359 platform’s security features and the architecture’s ability to deliver content in a more efficient and economic fashion, the ported version of the Bet Clearer mobile solution will not only showcase further how CSRH’s technology leaps over mobile content admin, distribution and compliance issues across multiple devices, it expands the already tight-knit relationship between the two companies. Taken in light of the earlier partnership between 359 and live-action Keno systems/Keno-associated products giant, XpertX, Inc., producing a mobile results app for live Keno, the company obvious has a firm grasp on innovating in this market.

Consorteum Holdings (CSRH) to Develop Mobile App with Bet Butler Limited

Tuesday, June 10th, 2014

Consorteum Holdings, Inc. (CSRH): Expanding Digital Content Space Will Provide Opportunities

Wednesday, June 4th, 2014

Consorteum Holdings is a transaction management and mobile publishing company. It also deals in mobile offerings, mobile content delivery, and mobile payment solutions.

Trying to make a mark as digital content provider

Last July, Consorteum Holdings decided to expand its business of providing digital content across all mobile phones. In this respect, the company formed the wholly owned subsidiary ThreeFiftyNine Inc. in August to commercialize new business opportunities in digital transaction management.

On April 22, the subsidiary initiated the New Partner Program under which it will provide services and solutions for the development and deployment of digital and mobile applications to existing as well as new partners. Currently, ThreeFiftyNine is targeting mobile gaming and wagering companies; however, because of its secure financial transaction platform, the subsidiary thinks it can expand its services to other applications.

Mobile gaming opportunities

Gamers are shifting from consoles and preinstalled PC games to mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. In 2014, game-playing on mobile devices globally is expected to increase by 20% year over year. Mobile gaming popularity also increased in the U.S. in 2013, and the trend is expected to continue. Revenue from mobile gaming in the U.S. is expected to reach about $3.2 billion this year in comparison to about $1.78 billion in 2013.

As mobile game-playing is growing, many popular electronic games’ mobile platforms are getting released. Keno is the one such popular electronic lottery game. Last year total sales of this game in the U.S. were about $3.2billion. Xpertx, a recognized leader in Keno gaming service since 1987, is starting to provide a mobile platform for the game, and for the same purpose it has entered into a binding agreement with ThreeFiftyNine. ThreeFiftyNine will enable XpertX to deliver mobile content to any kind of mobile handsets regardless of the operating system. With this agreement, players will be able to play Keno on mobile for the first time and also have access to results of Keno games played in casinos and Keno parlours across the country. As XpertX is the most popular Keno gaming service provider in the U.S., this agreement will provide potential upside for ThreeFiftyNine’s revenue. In addition, the company is expecting to enter into an agreement with mobile gaming companies this year, which will further improve its position.

Betting services by mobile is another growing prospect

Betting through mobile devices is continuously increasing, especially on sportsbooks and exchanges. Sportsbook is a place where gamblers can wager on various sports events. By 2017, wagering on sportsbooks is expected to reach $45 billion and wagers for all kinds of gambling through mobile devices will reach $100 billion, up from $20 billion in 2011. Mobile betting in the U.S. is also rising after the U.S. Department of Justice has reopened remote gambling in 2011, which was previously opened for just sporting events. After this verdict, several started giving permission for such services. In remote gambling, the person can participate by remote communication such as Internet, telephone, television, or radio.

With the growing popularity of mobile betting, ThreeFiftyNine Inc. is trying to enter into an agreement with the bet-brokering service providers. Last month it entered into a binding agreement with Bet Clearer Ltd., the parent company of Bet Butler. ThreeFiftyNine will develop mobile offerings for the latter’s web-based betting concierge service. Bet Butler is a global bet-brokering service that acts as a middleman between gamblers and bookmakers. It deals in popular sports such as football, horse racing, rugby and tennis. ThreeFiftyNine is developing a mobile version of Bet Butler’s service and is expected to release it in the fourth quarter of 2014. This mobile-based service will help Bet Butler’s clients bet from the bookmaker with the best price. Since betting through mobile devices on sports is increasing, this agreement will provide potential upside to both companies.

Mobile is clearly what the Keno customers want and the ability to view Keno results is just the first step in being able to offer a pay-for-play version of this game wherever allowed,” said Craig Fielding, CEO of Consorteum and president of ThreeFiftyNine.

Consortium worked closely with XpertX, by most accounts recognized as an industry leader in Keno gaming, to validate what the mobile app can do.

Together, ThreeFiftyNine and XpertX will provide vital components for the application. ThreeFiftyNine’s contributions include but are not limited to the establishment of the game server and various integration functions, platform and technology services, publishing and distribution of the app and various support services, including database management, hosting, billing and data protection, and privacy considerations and compliance.

“We are extremely optimistic to join forces with TFN bringing live Keno to mobile gaming within the limits allowed by each jurisdiction,” stated XpertX founder and President Eric Thomassian. “The game of Keno, by its nature, lends itself quite well to a mobile platform. This venture offers enormous potential not only for TFN and XpertX, but also for Gaming operators in terms of increased opportunities for incremental revenue through wide exposure of Keno to a new, younger audience that is solidly entrenched in mobile technology.”
