Vopium has already signed agreements with Canadian Convergia Networks and Swiss TEL4LESS, and is now reaching out to other telcos and ISPs looking to join the booming mobile VoIP-market.
Vopium now makes it possible for partners, with or without a mobile service offering, to provide Vopium’s voice and messaging services under their own brand. This gives telcos and ISPs a new tool for developing their business model and retention rates, as they can offer price-conscious customers international mobile calls in superb quality with up to 90 percent savings, without compromising their own brand and existing international call margins. The white label solution is a first step towards new partnerships and collaborations with telcos, who may previously have considered VoIP companies a threat rather than an opportunity.
“Traditionally, telcos have regarded mobile VoIP providers as challengers to their core business. Now they realise that a quality VoIP offer enables them to grab a share of their competitors’ international traffic. It also helps them to protect their user base, retaining cost-conscious customers with frequent calls abroad.
“Vopium has invested significant resources in a cutting-edge white label solution, and forward-thinking telcos use it to offer their customers a complete portfolio, including traditional telephony products as well as the best from mobile VoIP. And with Vopium’s white label solution, telcos can get to market fast with their own brand and visual identity, using a proven and well-tested solution, instead of investing in a lengthy and costly VoIP development process over numerous handsets,” says Tanveer Sharif, CEO of Vopium.
Vopium signs white label agreement with TEL4LESS
Last year, Vopium signed its first white label partnership with Canadian Convergia Networks, one of the world's largest privately held global end-to-end telecom networks. Swiss-based provider TEL4LESS, which focuses on mobile VoIP in the German-speaking DACH region, has also chosen a Vopium white label solution to expand their services. Both companies will use Vopium’s technical VoIP and messaging platform, but will provide end-users with a completely rebranded interface.
“Vopium’s white label gives us a turnkey solution for offering international mobile calls with up to 90 percent savings, free WiFi calling, online backups etc. under our own brand. We have chosen Vopium’s solution because it is the most versatile, and is adapted for over 900 different types of mobile phone, which gives us a unique platform for reaching out to new user groups who can now benefit from mobile VoIP. We value the new partnership, as Vopium’s VoIP services are perfectly suited for the booming numbers of mainstream VoIP consumers,” says Arthur Hertnagel, Chairman of API Invest & Finanz AG, which holds the majority of TEL4LESS.
Fast time to market and no hassle for end users
Vopium provides the white label offering either as a technical platform or as an end-to-end mobile VoIP and messaging service. Partners can work with Vopium either for a quick fix, to fulfil end users’ immediate demand for mobile VoIP, or for a full-scale strategic partnership, with tight integration between billing systems and telephone networks.
“Our white label solution gives telcos a new platform for combining their traditional products with a VoIP service. End users perceive this as a hassle-free solution, as they don’t have to change SIM-cards or log into other online services in order to stay connected with friends and family, both domestic and abroad,” says Tanveer Sharif, CEO of Vopium.
