IMImobile is a leading provider of technology platforms and content aggregation to mobile operators and media companies enabling them to offer innovative and differentiated value added services to increase Average Revenue per User (ARPU) and reduce subscriber churn.
The company’s product portfolio includes a core Service Delivery Platform (SDP), carrier grade messaging platforms and gateways, a range of applications for data services and voice platforms and applications for voice value added services.
The company increased revenues by 30% to $13m and expects to continue this rate of organic growth. The growth has come predominantly from the Indian mobile market which continues to grow rapidly with nearly 100m subscribers added during the year to take the total number of wireless subscribers to over 260m. As expected the additional subscribers are based in rural India and as a result there is greater demand for voice based value added services. IMImobile’s investment in developing voice platforms is now paying off.
Growth in Latin America and the Caribbean has been slower than expected as sales and deployment cycles have been longer than envisaged. However, new clients like Tigo and new deployments at Terra and Telesur have laid the foundation for accelerating growth in these markets.
The company’s technology roadmap continues to be at the heart of the company’s success with the company’s revenue mix increasingly coming from technology rather than content aggregation though both are critical to the managed service offering.
The company continues to innovate with the launch of Ad-Ring, a multi-channel multi-format mobile advertising solution and mVaayoo, a web-based platform for SMEs in India to reach and interact with their prospects/customers through their mobile phones.
The company’s innovation and market presence have been widely applauded both within India and internationally. The company won the prestigious “Emerging Company of the Year” award in India, was included in Deloitte’s “Technology Fast 50” list and recognised in a global “Top 250 Technology Companies” list.
The company now employs 340 people and boasts a 24/7 Network Operations Centre in Hyderabad remotely managing over 280 servers globally that support over 150 services for 52 mobile operators.
