WorldMate Freemium pricing
WorldMate initially tested its Freemium pricing structure with its launch of an application for the Nokia S60 platform. The business model increased the company's revenues on this platform by several hundred percent. WorldMate has expanded its customer base while leveraging its thought and product leadership in the market through continued product advancements.
Delayed or cancelled flights
According to statistics from the US Bureau of Transportation, more than 27 percent of flights were delayed or cancelled in the US alone during the first half of 2007. This statistic increases WorldMate's value, making travel easier by providing comprehensive flight status and flight schedule services as well as world clocks, clothing size and currency converters.
