SOURCENEXT helps Global Developers Monetize their Android Apps through Mobile Carrier Subscription-Based App Program

Japan’s Largest Software Publisher and Distributor Introduces Non-Japanese Apps to Leading Mobile Carriers Through Full-Service Market Penetration Program

SAN FRANCISCO, CA — September 11, 2017 — SOURCENEXT (TYO: 4344), Japan’s largest software publisher and distributor, will be showcasing its mobile carrier program at Mobile World Congress Americas 2017 in San Francisco at booth W.624. SOURCENEXT localizes non-Japanese apps and helps monetize them through the three largest Japanese mobile carriers: au by KDDI, NTT docomo, and SoftBank. SOURCENEXT gives non-Japanese Android app developers access to these carriers’ market-leading app store subscription services, which utilize a different app purchasing model from many other parts of the world, including the United States. These monthly “all-you-can-eat” subscription services offered by Japan’s largest mobile carriers create an instant sales channel for app developers to reach the Japanese market.

SOURCENEXT helps US and other foreign-based software companies and app developers launch desktop and mobile apps in Japan. Their full-service market penetration program drives ongoing profitability for foreign companies and developers through localization, domestic customer support, marketing, merchandising, distribution, partnerships, and more.

“The major challenge for software and app developers looking to break into the Japanese market is understanding and appealing to an unfamiliar audience. Japanese consumers rely on their mobile service providers to help them discover new apps, and they trust these service providers to curate relevant and interesting content,” said Noriyuki Matsuda, CEO and founder of SOURCENEXT. “Our mobile carrier partnership program takes the guess work out of finding profitability in this market by optimizing the Japanese subscription services and using our trusted relationships to shorten the distance from market introduction to profitability.”

Asian mobile users spend on average $.20 more than the global average of $.50 monthly in-app purchases per user, making Japan one of the largest and most profitable app markets in the world. By connecting new app developers with Japan’s three leading mobile carriers, which collectively equate to $1 billion annually, SOURCENEXT helps developers navigate this key market and generate revenue share.
