Wind Mobile is known particularly for being the leading provider of value-added service platforms for mobile operators. The “Powered by Wind Mobile” logo has been displayed on many products already introduced for existing customers, and Wind Mobile technology solutions are familiar to millions of mobile phone users. Apart from a friendlier waiting time solution, thanks to Wind Mobile products, subscribers receive missed call notifications, important information when crossing borders, or they can top up their pre-paid mobile phones using short codes.
For over two years, Wind Mobile has been developing the VAS Force department, whose function is to outsource the value-added service management for mobile operators. Thanks to the innovative technology, as well as Wind Mobile’s staff’s passion and involvement, operators can safely transfer some of their business activities to the partner and benefit from the guaranteed increase of efficiency.
In 2011, Wind Mobile began to work on Halo Ads – a mobile advertising system based on ringback tones. The goal of the company is to make – for the first time in the world – this kind of advertising medium available for the subscribers of all mobile networks operating in a particular market.
We are witnessing the biggest revolution in technology since the spread of the Internet in the previous decade. For a long time, mobile phones have already been used for other purposes than just conversations – they give us entertainment, information and are becoming an indispensable working tool. We are proud of the fact that Wind Mobile sets the standards in many areas, being more creative and efficient than large international corporations. The admission of the company to the Warsaw Stock Exchange is an important milestone in our development path,- says Igor Bokun, Wind Mobile CEO.
