Voice SMS services debut in Republic of Congo

The Republic of Congo’s third largest telecommunications operator, Warid Congo SA, is launching Voice SMS services across its network. The offering is based on technology from Kirusa, a developer of mobile VAS. Voice SMS allows Warid Congo customers to send messages to any mobile subscriber in the Republic of Congo by voice, eliminating the need to type. The ease of use of the technology also allows mobile subscribers to experience the emotion and convenience absent in text messaging. Use of Kirusa Voice SMS by mobile phone users is gaining global traction due to its ease of use and value provided to mobile subscribers.
Commenting on the launch, Mr. Michel Elame, CEO of Warid Congo S.A, said, “Voice SMS has a significant utility as a means of communications and connectivity and as an enabler for the delivery of content and services, for both the consumer and enterprise markets. In Congo this service will give our customers the freedom to communicate and express their emotions with the Voice SMS service.”
Dr. Inderpal Singh Mumick, CEO and Founder of Kirusa, said, “Since we launched in Africa, we are greatly buoyed by a significant rise in the customer base across the continent. Our expansion plan involves two simple elements, to ensure that our product is one of the best in the industry and to continue to liberate mobile users.”
