SkillPod Media is a gaming industry enabler, offering localised white label platforms and 3rd party premium games content and solutions to publishers and game developers across the globe. The SkillPod Media white label games platform has been used by many of the top publishers across the globe.
The strategy being to provide publishers with a solution that has the following key benefits: • White label structure – the ability to relatively easily skin the solution with your own brand identity. • Single Sign-on (SSO) solution – the last thing users want to have to do is register multiple times on the same site. It is a non-negotiable that a platform should allow you to fully integrate it with your own user registration process. • Comprehensive games catalogue – services and features are one thing, but a great catalogue of game titles across all genres is without doubt the single biggest factor in long-term gaming site success. • Localisation ability – in most cases English will suffice as the primary language on a gaming site, but users are starting to demand content in their own languages. The platform and games content must be able to be fully translated and localised. This includes reformatting for non-Western alphabets (e.g. Arabic being read from right to left). • Micro-transactions and billing solutions – while display ads do still generate revenue, it is imperative to choose a platform that offers opportunities to generate revenues from micro-transactions. It should be fully integrated with a reputable payment provider, offering multiple payment solutions and options. • APIs for developers and publishers – the strength of any platform lies in its ability to seamlessly pull and push content to and from various predetermined sources, including content feeds to the primary site to promote special events and new titles. It is vital that APIs for game developers can be quickly and easily integrated with the platform’s SSO, billing and interactive features. • Feature-rich gaming modules – there are some non-negotiable features of a gaming platform. The following need to be part of the bouquet: secure high score logging, user registration (incl. Facebook Connect and Google), live leader boards, friends, messaging, avatar tools, tournaments, prizes, contests and challenges. • Comprehensive back end management – this is another non-negotiable. You need to manage your content and special promotions, review performance, communicate with your users and keep an eye on overall performance linked to your predefined key metrics. • Cross platform ability – with the widespread adoption of mobile devices and the inevitability of IP TV, it is vital that a gaming platform be compatible with these. It also needs to be configurable so that you can format your content on the fly and deliver it to multiple devices. • Multiple deployments – many publishers have sites that serve multiple geographic locations and languages. Your gaming platform should support these multiple deployments, and allow you to make the necessary design and content changes to suit each market.
Typically, publishers looking to offer games on their sites or launch standalone games sites, have wish lists of basic requirements and additional features. These are the most common: • White label structure • Multiple language support for content • Seamless interfacing with the user registration platform (SSO) • Ability to deploy multiple versions of the games site • Ability to monetise • Ability to add custom content • Ability to manage events and featured content • Accurate reporting capability
