LONDON, UK, VANCOUVER, CANADA, 23 July 2012 – Following successful launches of global offices in Dubai and Sydney, Infobip, one of the world’s most trusted mobile services providers, announced today it is opening an office in Vancouver. As one of the leading providers of mobile services to enterprises and mobile operators, Infobip is looking to promote in the North American market its SMS-based enterprise mobile services, as well as the Centili m-payments platform targeting an audience of gaming and digital goods providers.
As an established mobile messaging provider, Infobip has a wide range of cloud services for enterprises and mobile operators. Infobip’s solutions help businesses bridge the communication gap and at the same time open new ways for operators to monetise their central position in the mobile ecosystem.
Centili is Infobip’s latest innovation, an m-payments system based on direct carrier billing technology, allowing purchase amounts to be charged directly to the consumer’s mobile account. Centili comes with a rich set of features for easy rollout by any merchant or mobile operator and instantly brings an added value.
Infobip CEO Silvio Kutic says, “Its IT and gaming sector make Vancouver the ideal location for our newest office, because Centili is especially formulated for seamless mobile payments of digital goods, in-app or in-game payments. Vancouver’s role as a trade and transport hub also means plenty of potential clients for our enterprise portfolio of messaging services.”
The Vancouver office will be headed by experienced executive Massimo Cristini, who has set up and was running Infobip’s Kuala Lumpur office until now. Mr Cristini says, “Opening the Vancouver office and introducing Centili to the North American market is an exciting opportunity and I’m looking forward to working with the young and enthusiastic team we are gathering here”.
Infobip’s Vancouver office will be staffed entirely by employees who have been recruited locally and are currently in training. Mr Kutic continues, “Local talent is indispensable for establishing your brand and business in a new country, as we’ve already seen in our other overseas offices, and even more so in North America. We’re glad to welcome them to the global Infobip family.”
The first task of the Vancouver office will be to attend the Casual Connect event in Seattle, dedicated to social and casual gaming and associated industries, where Infobip will be exhibiting at stand C3E as one of the sponsors.
