Mobilise’s HERO platform earns key European patent
After a rigorous three-year process, telecoms SaaS provider Mobilise proudly announces that its HERO platform has been granted European Patent No EP3786819A1. In the digital landscape, innovation is the key to staying ahead of the curve. This milestone reinforces its position as innovators in the digital services industry.
For those that are familiar with patent processes, you will know that having a software patent granted is no small feat. Courts and patent offices often struggle with whether the software is merely an abstract idea, which is not patentable, or if it represents a new and useful process, which can be patented. It can be challenging to demonstrate that the software does more than just execute a series of calculations or automations.
Mobilise’s patent centres around the innovative design of HERO’s orchestration layer, a core component of the platform responsible for managing the complex workflows of digital services. It harmonises multiple systems, automating business processes to increase productivity and reduce operational costs.
The patent relates to a software license distribution system that connects an external software provider and one or more end-user clients. The system stores a license pool provided by the provider and grants licenses to access a software service based on user credentials. The system also monitors the usage of the licenses and updates the license pool accordingly. In its essence, the system aims to improve the efficiency and security of software license management.
The HERO platform revolutionises the digital service experience. It allows service providers to offer exciting next-generation digital experiences and assists service providers in delivering high-quality, customisable digital solutions. HERO simplifies the management of complex digital services, offering comprehensive control to seamlessly coordinate all components of the digital ecosystem and, in many cases, compensating for legacy systems and infrastructure unable to deliver on today’s digital technology requirements. Moreover, the platform’s scalability allows service providers to grow and adapt their offerings in line with market changes, maintaining competitiveness in the dynamic digital ecosystem.
Beyond the European region, Mobilise is now set to port this patent to other jurisdictions. This strategic step ensures the protection of its unique HERO platform at a global scale, reinforcing its value and standing worldwide.
“The patent grant is a testament to the ingenuity and expertise of the team at Mobilise,” explained Hamish White, CEO of Mobilise. “We are thrilled to have this recognition for our HERO platform, which we believe is the best digital BSS solution in the market. More importantly, it sends a clear message of our dedication to driving excellence in digital service delivery. This patent is not just a testament to the ingenuity of our team but also a promise to our partners and clients that we will continue pushing the boundaries of digital service provision. Here’s to many more milestones in our relentless pursuit of innovation.”
