“We are very ambitious in providing a satisfying user experience for our customers. So, first of all, we were looking for a supplier that was willing to be not just a supplier but our partner, who was able to provide a custom package that we liked. We needed a company that would help us to deliver our vision.
AlphaOTT™ became such a partner. The company made a lot of useful recommendations and provided us with a great experience. It included app development, high-quality integration with billing, DRM and CDN systems. The product was scalable and we also didn’t see too many limitations, which was important to us.
Furthermore, the product looks good. That’s the first thing and another advantage. UX design is essential. You never have a second chance to make a first impression. But besides a wow-effect, your apps have to work. And this is the second part of importance. Now we see the product looks good and it works well: that’s what people want and we, as a company, too. AlphaOTT™ was the right partner to achieve these goals.”, CEO of Tugo Media
Thanks to mutually beneficial collaboration AlphaOTT™ and Tugo Media were able to create a cutting-edge brand new TV experience for new TugoTV subscribers who now have the opportunity to experience all interactive features expected in current TV apps.
