The Swedish-developed mobile communication service VMS continues to spread around the world, now also in Turkey. VMS will be marketed by Ericom, a Turkish telecommunications company that develops and markets telecommunication solutions for mobile operators in the region.
Turkey is a strategically important country for Ironroad's continued roll-out of VMS. The Turkish market is fast growing with a young population that now tops the charts for mobile surfing in Europe. New mobile services are quickly embraced. Turkish telecom and technology companies are among the fastest growing in Europe.
"We continue to successfully pursue our strategy of establishing ourselves in new markets. Our goal is to establish VMS in the global market as the most significant mobile communications service for businesses and individuals. Turkey's mobile market is one of the largest in the region due to its large population, and it is growing rapidly", says Magnus Kniving, CEO at Ironroad AB (publ).
Ericom, listed on the Turkish stock market, has an extensive experience in marketing solutions towards mobile operators after several years of collaboration with major players such as Turkcell and Huawei. The company was named the sixth fastest growing technology company in Turkey in the Deloitte Fast 50 in 2010.
"Ericom is very excited to launch VMS in Turkey. Turkey is one of the biggest markets in the world and ranks 4th with 30.5 million Facebook users. We believe that the cooperation between Ironroad and Ericom will attract millions of users in our country. VMS is the perfect application and Turkish people will now start to share and and have fun using it", says Soner Bahcuvan, member of the Board of Directors at Ericom.
VMS is the sequel to SMS and MMS, a simple and cost effective way to share experiences and communicate via mobile phone. VMS is downloaded as a free app from the App Store, Android Market and BlackBerry App World.
