The telecommunication customer’s journey from onboarding, through support and repair, to trade-in can be fraught with challenges due to no remote intelligence, disconnection and lack of history awareness. This leads to friction for customers and operators. The mature dDLM platform is an emerging digital-first differentiator for telcos. It provides an end-to-end platform for device lifecycle management. It uniquely positions MCE not simply as the only platform technology, but as the defacto platform standard for the industry.
“With his considerable experience working with Israel’s leading technology companies, Oren exhibits more than just knowledge of how things work, but wisdom about why they work,” says Yuval Blumental, MCE Co-Founder & CEO. “MCE is in a position to support the digital transformation of the telecommunications industry with an end-to-end platform, which we understand requires scale and major partnerships. This has been a key focus of MCE’s recent additions to our Advisory Board. Oren is a perfect match with MCE’s future-focused approach and with his strategic expertise, we anticipate he will help accelerate MCE’s growth journey.”
Oren is currently a board member at Yissum, The Hebrew University Tech Transfer Company. Oren serves at the investment advisory of several Israeli tech companies, late-stage VC and Fund of Fund focuses on investments on Israeli VC’s.
Oren holds a Master’s of Arts in Diplomacy and Security from Tel Aviv University and a BA in Economics and Accounting from Ben Gurion University and participate in Harvard Leadership Program. He is also a Certified Public Accountant in Israel.
