Espoo, Finland –Telecom IT solutions provider Tecnotree today announced the delivery of a conference calling platform to South Africa’s largest mobile operator, Vodacom. The service, called Vodacom Conference Call Advanced, provides consumers and businesses alike with a tool to set up multi-party conference calls by simply dialling a dedicated number or sending a short code text message.
The service is quick and easy to set up, and participants only pay per call. The Vodacom Conference Call Advanced service is currently available to all mobile, fixed line and VoIP subscribers in South Africa.
According to the recently published Operator Trends 2012 research by MobileSQUARED, 40 per cent of surveyed operators already offer convergent triple play or quad-play bundles. An additional two per cent of operators seek to offer dedicated fixed and mobile telephony bundles without actually owning a fixed network themselves.
“Tecnotree has a wide footprint in operational Call Completion solutions in the Middle East and Africa region. We are continuously working with our customers to optimise the use of the existing investment and revenue,” adds Kerry Koutsikos, Tecnotree Vice President, Middle East and Africa.
