Evergent, the customer management and monetization innovator providing flexible monetization tools for direct-to-consumer and B2B businesses, is partnering up with MBC GROUP’S streaming service Shahid, the VOD and SVOD streaming platform in the Middle East & North Africa (MENA) region. 

Through the agreement, Shahid will use Evergent’s comprehensive suite of customer management and monetization tools to support user registration, subscription management, and other key functions throughout the MENA region.

Shahid is the first and leading VOD and SVOD streaming platform in the Arab world owned by MBC GROUP, offering premium content to Arab families, including binge-worthy exclusive Shahid Original Series, Shahid Premieres, Arabic movies fresh from the box-office, live TV channels in true HD quality as well as international offerings. 

Evergent offers innovative, flexible customer monetization solutions for media and telecommunications companies throughout the world. With customers in 175 countries ranging from small businesses to Fortune 500 companies, Evergent creates user-friendly solutions that enable each customer to streamline their CRM processes and maximize monetization efforts.

“The past 24 months has seen a period of unprecedented growth for Shahid, as we successfully pivoted our product from the region’s leading Catch-Up platform to a Premium OTT SVOD service,” said Dominic Farrell, Chief Technology Officer, Shahid. “In order to support this growth and the rapidly evolving OTT landscape, we need a trusted partner who was able to help scale our business across complex and varied regional markets whilst supporting multiple currencies, languages and payment methods. Not only did Evergent meet this brief, but they allowed us to migrate and deploy their solution in record time with zero visible disruption to our core business.”

“Evergent stands out among customer management providers in the digital media and telecommunications industries because of our ability to take on large, complex challenges without hesitation,” said Vijay Sajja, founder and CEO of Evergent. “We were thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Shahid, one of the Middle East’s most important media entities. Our team worked tirelessly to support Shahid on an accelerated timeline, and we look forward to developing our partnership further in the coming years.”
