VALUE ADDED SERVICESBy BiztechAfrica - March 3, 2012, 3:51 p.m.
Pervasip Corp. subsidiary Vox Communications has entered into a letter of intent with Trust Pay and Emoni to market its mobile VoIP application in Africa.
Trust Pay is an SA-based company that developed the Trust Pay app, which has enabled developers to monetize their apps by building a seamless payment solution that enables mobile consumers to purchase apps directly from their cellphones without the need for credit or debit cards. Developers receive payment from Trust Pay via a variety of Mobile Wallets across dozens of mobile networks, depending on the country in which the user is located.
Trust Pay's solution is an innovation in the rapidly expanding worldwide Android market. Each day there are 850,000 Android devices activated and over 1 billion app downloads every month.
"Our partnership with Vox Communications will be a great alliance as we will have a concept that no other app can match," said Sean D Conde, CEO of Trust Pay.
"The VoIP application, with its superior technology and easy to use payment integration is the right mix of high quality voice and video paired with low international rates and text messaging, is the future of making calls."
"We are excited to work with the industry leader in Mobile Wallet to launch and market our mobile VoIP application starting in South Africa and moving up into the African Continent," said Barry MacCheyne, CMO at Vox Communications. "Our international calling features and robust network capabilities allow us the opportunity to partner with world class companies like Trust Pay."
Vox Communications will provide its mobile VoIP offering as a white label solution.
