Boston, MA. December 08, 2011— OnePIN, Inc., the world’s leading provider of mobile social address book solutions, today announced that Orange has signed a contract to deploy the CallerXchange service to its subscribers in Cameroon.
Orange is the first operator in Cameroon to offer OnePIN’s CallerXchange service.

CallerXchange transforms a static phone book into an enriched, dynamic social address book.
“We are excited about the launch of CallerXchange in Orange Cameroon. This project epitomizes Orange Group’s commitment to innovation in Africa and we are looking forward to repeating the successes that CallerXchange has generated for Orange in other regions around the world.” stated David Moore, Director of Solution Sales at OnePIN, Inc.
