Tigo DRC, a leading telecom operator in Democratic Republic of Congo and a subsidiary of Millicom International Cellular, announced that its Voice SMS service has achieved an impressive adoption rate of over 60% in little over six months. Tigo launched Voice SMS service across Democratic Republic of Congo in September 2010, using the pioneering Voice SMS technology from Kirusa, world’s leading vendor of mobile social media and value added services.

Kirusa further announced that the Kirusa Open Multimodal Platform deployed at Tigo has been expanded to support the hundreds of millions of calls processed since launch.

Voice SMS allows Tigo subscribers to send messages by voice, eliminating the need to type. It enables subscribers to communicate faster, with greater ease, and convey emotions as compared to limitations of text messaging which allows only limited display of characters. Use of Voice SMS by mobile subscribers is gaining global traction given its immense value and for its benefits in surpassing the limitations of text messages.

General Manager of Tigo, Mr. Abdellatif Bouziani said: “We introduced Voice SMS to Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) to facilitate better communication. We are delighted with the runaway performance and customer response to this service. Kirusa has proven its ability in generating high revenues from Voice SMS and its open multimodal platform.” He added,“We are very happy with the stability and performance of the Voice SMS service. Managed services from Kirusa have been crucial to the success of Voice SMS at Tigo.”

Congratulating Tigo on the successful and stable performance of Voice SMS, Taranjit Singh Batra, Vice President of Sales at Kirusa, said,“Tigo has been a true partner in success of this service. Their proactive support has made a tremendous difference and we are delighted that this partnership is being extended to other mobile services on the Kirusa platform.”
