February 25, 2014Partnership deal extends Voxox For Operators Program reach in Asia
BARCELONA (MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS) and SAN DIEGO – February 25, 2014 – Voxox®, the most comprehensive cloud-based rich communication service for consumers and businesses, today announced at Mobile World Congress, being held at Fira Gran Via in Barcelona, Spain, February 24-27, 2014, the addition of a new partner to its Voxox For Operators™ program: VTC Intecom, a subsidiary of Vietnam Multimedia Corporation (VTC). An ISP and cable company with plans to deploy a mobile network, VTC is a multiple-system operator and Vietnam's leading digital content provider with more than 16 million active accounts for digital content services. VTC has partnered with Voxox to launch a co-branded version of the Voxox application on the iOS, Android and desktop platforms to deliver powerful unified communications features coupled with digital content, such as games, through various distribution channels. The partnership is a no CAPEX, revenue-share deal with a non-exclusive license targeting the Vietnamese market.
As part of the agreement, VTC will license, distribute, and monetize the co-branded apps using its Vcoins virtual currency for VTC customers. Voxox will integrate select VTC content into the co-branded apps and localize the apps in the Vietnamese language. In addition, the Voxox desktop application will integrate the VTC Game Launcher, which will allow customers to download and play games that are licensed by VTC. Once deployed, the co-branded app will enable users to sign in with their current VTC login or Facebook login and use a Friend Finder feature to search for contacts and invite them to download the application and communicate for free. Voxox will issue phone numbers to VTC customers and terminate their calls on a global basis using its award-winning Service Delivery Platform, expansive telecom network interconnections, and highly competitive rates. Future plans include developing calling and messaging capabilities for VTC gaming customers to use in real-time during gameplay.
"Vietnam is one of the key emerging markets in Southeast Asia, and we're thrilled to partner with VTC at this exciting time," said Bryan Hertz, CEO and co-founder of Voxox. "Our partnership will help grow and extend our global reach for both features and content, while enhancing VTC customers' communications experience."
The VTC partnership agreement is the latest in a series of deals brokered as part of the Voxox For Operators program, which was first introduced at Mobile World Congress 2013. The Voxox For Operators program enables service providers and Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) to economically deploy the industry's most comprehensive suite of OTT services in order to recoup revenue being lost to competing OTT players and generate incremental revenue from a wide variety of compelling features.
"We are very excited to partner with Voxox to enable our valued customers to experience the most comprehensive communication app on the market," said Nguyen Thanh Hung, CCO at VTC. "We look forward to combining our expertise in delivering entertainment content with the power of unified communications across any device, anywhere. We expect our partnership will set the bar even higher when it comes to delivering a compelling entertainment and communication experience to users."
As the industry's most comprehensive OTT communication service, Voxox offers an unmatched combination of calling and messaging features that enable users to connect with anyone, anywhere – regardless of network or calling device. Free and low-cost features include worldwide calling and texting, two-way electronic faxing, call routing and call forwarding, on-the-fly language translation, voicemail transcription, video, photo and location sharing, and much more. All Voxox-to-Voxox communication is free, as is all inbound communication from non-Voxox accounts. Voxox also offers business telephony solutions for SMBs, carriers and enterprises.
