Warid Congo Partners with Telemune for Managed VAS: WAP Portal Services, Low Balance Suite and Phone Backup

New Delhi, November 7, 2013: Telemune, a pioneer of value added services in emerging markets globally, today announced that it is partnering with Warid Congo to launch WAP Portal Services, Low Balance Suite and Phone Back Up Service. Telemune will be managing the services end-to-end.

WAP Portal Services are popular with mobile users interested in getting updates on entertainment, sports and news from regular feature phones. Low Balance will help Warid’s mobile users stay connected when they are running low on balance, or have no balance at all. And Phone Back Up Service provides mobile users with the convenience of always having their contacts available for download. As part of this partnership, Telemune will deploy the solutions, manage operations and ensure service and feature enhancement. For WAP Portal services, Telemune will manage content and content partners and create campaigns and promotions to drive service uptake.

Speaking on the partnership, Mr. Imossio Begoume, Marketing director, Warid Congo said, “We want to keep our customers up-to-date in the simplest and most convenient way possible – and ensure they have access to fun services on their mobile. We see WAP Portal services as a key means for our customers to stay in touch with what is happening in their world. We also want to make sure our customers are always in touch. With Low Balance services they can ask friends for balance or to call them or to pay for their call – or even ask Warid to extend credit. Phone Back Up provides users with access to their contacts at any time – and is really helpful if they lose their mobile or mistakenly delete contact details. We think these services will have great appeal and we are proud to be broadening the types of service our customers can enjoy from us.”

Harish Bansal, CEO, Telemune commented, “We are very excited to be partnering with Warid Congo to manage WAP Portal, Low Balance and Phone Back Up services. We believe these services will add fun and utility to customers’ service experience. Telemune has extensive experience in delivering and managing successful WAP Portal services and we will work closely with Warid to build a popular and engaging service that is easy-to-use and offers a great range of constantly changing content. With Low Balance services, we are confident that mobile users will enjoy the new options they have to keep in touch and request credit. And Phone Back Up is a highly practical service that ensures users always have access to their contact details.”
