Boston, MA. December 22, 2016 — OnePIN, Inc., the world’s leading provider of social call connectivity and social address book solutions, today announced that it has launched its CallerXchange and MsgXpress services with Orange Democratic Republic of the Congo (“DRC”).
The mobile market in the DRC is undergoing significant growth and is currently the largest mobile market in Central and West Africa after Nigeria with more than 40 million subscribers. With a population of more than 80 million people and a relatively low mobile penetration rate of 50% of the population, the country offers considerable growth potential for Orange. Orange has launched OnePIN’s CallerXchange and MsgXpress services to its subscriber base of 12 million mobile phone customers in the country.
CallerXchange, OnePIN’s flagship service, is a person-to-person business card exchange service that connects people and enhances social networks. Subscribers can easily share and update their contact information after phone calls. The phonebook is one of the most universally used applications on the phone, and quietly continues to be a strategic play for mobile network operators. MsgXpress is a missed call service that allows subscribers to quickly and easily send personalized messages with a single click immediately after missed calls. Both services generate premium value added service revenue for mobile network operators, in addition to helping reduce subscriber churn.
Orange is one of the world’s leading telecommunications operators with sales of 40 billion euros in 2015 and 154,000 employees worldwide at 30 September 2016, including 95,000 employees in France. Present in 29 countries, the Group has a total customer base of 256 million customers worldwide at 30 September 2016, including 194 million mobile customers and 18 million fixed broadband customers. Orange is also a leading provider of global IT and telecommunication services to multinational companies, under the brand Orange Business Services. In March 2015, the Group presented its new strategic plan “Essentials2020” which places customer experience at the heart of its strategy with the aim of allowing them to benefit fully from the digital universe and the power of its new generation networks.
Orange is listed on Euronext Paris (symbol ORA) and on the New York Stock Exchange (symbol ORAN).
