RUNS NV is based in Torhout, Belgium

Our mission is to inform end users, family heads and enterprise fleet administrators of their 23-3G mobile data usage in real-time, expressed in monetary units (€/$/£) and not just in volume (MB).

At any time, the user should be informed of the 3G data bundle (product) being consumed, the consumed credit (daily, weekly, monthly) and the remaining credit in the bundle.

Market tests have shown that informed subscribers spend more on mobile data services, whereas non-informed subscribers experience bill shocks, switch off 3G or never even purchase a mobile data subscription (SIM card) in the first place, even if their device (netbook, tablet, smartphone) supports it.

Therefore what we provide is an ultra-affordable (yet scalable and customized) server performing the AAA (Authentication, Authorization & Accounting), PCRF (Policy & Charging Rules Function) and OCS (Online Charging Server) functions. 

Our customers are MVNOs (Mobile Virtual Network Operators), MVNEs (Mobile Virtual Network Enablers), M2M Operators (Machine-to-Machine) and MNOs (Mobile Network Operators) wishing to inform their customers in an open, transparent way.

An example of smartphone app communicating to RUNS servers is Cubic Internet, available for free on Android Market and on Apple App Store.

Finally, we support flexible business models : licensed software, software+hardware integration, hosted, managed, cloud.
