An interview with Mr. Morten Brøgger, CEO of MACH

Morten, can we say that MACH is the perfect link between financial industry and telecom?

Over the past decade, world-leading technology companies have found their home in Luxembourg and quickly turned it into a hub of creativity. Global companies that set the agenda in their respective industries have flocked to Luxembourg in order to take advantage of a business environment that encourages innovation. I am pleased to say that MACH continues to thrive and support the local economy in this innovative atmosphere. MACH has long been known for its leadership in data and financial clearing and settlement of mobile roaming, with more than 50% of the world’s roaming calls passing through its system. More recently, it has been recognized for its pioneering achievements in fraud protection, revenue assurance, mobile data monetization and direct operator billing. Our vision is to be part of every transaction in the connected world by leveraging our core expertise in these areas and applying it to similar and adjacent markets.

We have a mission to be the leading cloud-based managed service provider of business support systems and data monetization solutions. Our innovations are testament to our continued focus on helping our operator partners to drive revenue, introduce new products and services quickly and seamlessly and attract and keep a loyal customer base, despite the challenging environment in which we all operate.

Today, MACH is fast becoming the provider of choice for real-time, value-added services that are essential for communications service providers around the globe to enhance customer experience, optimize wholesale processes and monetize their businesses in 3G and 4G mobile ecosystems. In addition, with its long heritage in data and financial clearing, settlement and hub-based connectivity models, MACH provides its 650 operator customers with state-of-the-art tools needed to align their business processes. I am looking forward to continuing to build on MACH’s achievements of the past 23 years.
