Vopium wins the Frost & Sullivan 2009 European Mobile VoIP Technology Innovation Award


Copenhagen and London, 22nd April, 2009 – Vopium, the company that drives down the cost of international mobile phone calls has today been honoured with the 2009 European Mobile VoIP Technology Innovation Award by Frost & Sullivan. The award recognises Vopium’s dedication to innovation, its commitment to bringing new products to market and its excellence in technology-leveraged and customer-focused services.

The Frost & Sullivan Award for Technology Innovation is presented to the company that has demonstrated technological superiority within its industry. This award is testament to Vopium’s ability to successfully develop and introduce new technology, formulate a well-designed product family, and make significant product performance contributions to the industry.

Commenting on the award, Vopium CEO Tanveer Sharif said: “We are very proud that Frost & Sullivan has recognised our persistent efforts to develop and deliver the very best mobile VoIP technology to the market. Vopium is dedicated to helping friends and families communicate, regardless of where they are in the world and our rapid expansion reflects our desire to be the leading provider of global communication.”

“By offering such a cost-effective service, Vopium enhances customer loyalty and confidence its applications, thereby enabling the firm to create a sustainable competitive advantage over other mobile VoIP providers,” explains Frost & Sullivan Programme Manager Luke Thomas. “Considering that Wi-Fi is not as ubiquitous as cellular networks today, Vopium has also made provisions for users to automatically connect to a 3G network when Wi-Fi is not available within a particular location.”
Vopium has rapidly expanded in the last six months launching its unique free software programme using mobile VoIP and Wi-Fi technology to reduce the cost of international phone calls in 16 countries including the UK, Germany, Switzerland, France and Spain. Vopium also recently celebrated being the world’s first mobile VoIP provider to offer mobile backup - a free service which allows Vopium customers to store their address book contacts and calendar securely online. Integrated with the Vopium application, Vopium Sync automatically backs up a user’s contacts and calendar direct to their online account. With several other product launches in the pipeline Vopium’s wave of development looks set to continue.
