Vodafone Ghana launches Voice SMS
Vodafone Ghana is continuing to bolster its services in the West African country, now launching its Voice SMS 2.0 services along with infotainment offerings that the company hopes will further improve services given to subscribers.
“The Kirusa Open Multimodal Platform (KOMP) deployed at Vodafone is designed to deliver a portfolio of leading social media and value added services,” Vodafone said.
The hope is that with the new service, Vodafone can continue to position itself at the top of the mobile market offerings, especially as other companies in the country have pushed forward a number of initiatives in recent months.
“The Voice SMS service allows customers to compose, retrieve new and old messages, forward, delete and save options. Infotainment services include songs, bible messages, inspirational messages, dating tips, health tips, and a ‘bid and win’ competition. It also includes pay-per-use facilities to dedicate a song and dedicate a prayer,” the company added.
“Voice SMS has many inherent advantages over text messaging including customers’ abilities to send out messages even when on the move. It also empowers the illiterate, and people with visual or hearing impairments,” Vodafone said.
They also believe the move will help the company expand into rural areas.
