Mobile World Congress “Massive Success” for The Qtel Group
The Qtel Group is celebrating its most successful GSMA Mobile World Congress ever, following the huge response to the launch of a string of new announcements at the event, which took place end of February in Barcelona.
During the week, The Qtel Group unveiled a Strategic Marketing Partnership (SMP) with Universal Music Group, the world’s leading music company, to offer unlimited music for customers across key international markets.
It has also announced plans to make Mobile Money services available for customers across its international operations at the event. Among the services being developed as part of the Group’s mobile money proposition are secure international mobile remittance, mobile payment and mobile recharge facilities.
The Qtel Group also premiered a new service to manage social networks and blogs through a single address book. The new service will enable customers to unify all their accounts, contacts and details for a full range of microblogging, blogging and social media services onto one platform, which can be accessed via their mobile phone or the Internet.
Other major announcements included the launch of a local Mobile Entertainment Forum (MEF) office in Doha, to be sponsored by The Qtel Group, choosing Qatar to be the hub for its operations in the Middle East region, plus a brace of new agreements with Microsoft.
