AVOapp - the most convenient alternative to mobile roaming

  1. 1. Capitalize AVO
  2. 2. Even with Skype, Viber and WhatsApp, mobile customers still spend billions on roaming charges for data and calls abroad. Why is that?
  3. 3. Key reasons q  Creating a local VoIP number for a call re-direct is possible(e.g. though services such as Vonage or Skype), but too time consuming/expensive and di!cult for most consumers; q  Only 15% of consumers can correctly identify mobile roaming charges and changes to EU legislation (which only impacts the EU, from 2017 onwards) are described as ‘half-backed’ and won’t solve the q  problem of higher roaming costs q  VoIP services, such as Skype, Viber and WhatsApp can’t receive inbound calls made to customers mobile number;
  4. 4. Some (around 25%) more frequent travellers attempt to use other solutions: q  Restricted to calling home only when they have Wi-Fi access, which depending where you are traveling isn’t always reliable or o"ers enough bandwidth for a VoIP call. q  Carrying two phones. One for cheap local Internet, the other to receive inbound calls, but those calls from home are only returned when the customer has Wi-Fi access. Alternatives people use q  Buy a local SIM/phone for cheap local Internet access. However, this doesn’t solve the inbound call cost problem or reducing roaming charges if they use their phone from home
  5. 5. None of these solutions are ideal. Despite technology advancing, there’s no simple way customers can receive calls from home without the expense of roaming or inconvenience of depending on local Wi-Fi.
  6. 6. Market Size Every year, over 600 million mobile subscribers incur $70 billion worth of mobile roaming costs. AVO is the solution. u u u

  15. 15. Next Generation Platform and why we now need investment We have done signi#cant research and now command the technologies and have partnership under way to fundamentally change our technology in such a way, that we can cover the globe and eliminate the need for a partnership per country. It is our estimate, that this is ~  four months of development time to #nalise our next generation platform. Further we will enhance our user capabilities so it will be possible as well to improve user experience by eliminate necessity of any setups from user side and also will provide not just voice but also SMS service. We are convinced, that this will be so attractive in the market, that we can increase our market penetration and reach eventually millions of users. This can be individuals signing up, as well as companies with many travelling employees, as the savings are substantial. This opportunity, in order to accelerate fast, will need investments both for the development, but as well for an e"ective launch and marketing campaign.
