Telogic launches its Over-the-Air Phone Backup Solution for Sun Cellular in the Philippines
Singapore, 9th May 2006 -- Telogic Pte Ltd., a Singapore-based Telecom Solutions Provider is excited to announce its strategic partnership with Sun Cellular (Digitel Mobile Philippines, Inc.), for the launching of its Over-the-Air Phone Backup service called Sun MyVault.
Sun Cellular (Digitel Mobile Philippines, Inc.), a fast-growing GSM Operator in the Philippines, enables its subscribers to create a backup of important information such as contacts and text messages to the MyVault server. It is a very important concept which helps users to maintain a copy of their information, in the event of unavoidable situations; for example: when phone is lost, defective, broken, stolen, and even in the event that user needs to change his handset. It also allows the convenience of storing and retrieving important mobile phone data anytime, anywhere.
This very simple store-and-restore mechanism over-the-air is available to all handset types. In fact, users can upload their contacts and text messages using keyword-based commands.
“We are very glad to work with Telogic to have this functional and useful service. Our subscribers will definitely have peace of mind, knowing their important information is safely stored and available whenever they need it. It’s a very interesting idea that meaningful text messages that users usually keep are backed-up. Imagine also the benefits of having your contact list intact and reduce the risk of losing them. MyVault will definitely give Sun Cellular a boost and increase its position as a provider of unique services.” said Mr. Dominick Danao, AVP-Value-Added Services of Sun Cellular.
Developed and marketed by Telogic, this backup and restore solution allows users to upload and download their contact list (phonebook) and text messages using simple SMS commands to be sent to MyVault. Alternatively, contacts can be sent as business card (vcard), making the steps even simpler.
“We are very excited to be able to participate in this opportunity to help Sun Cellular with their objectives to bring innovative services to their growing subscribers. This Backup Solution is part of our increasing capabilities to offer customers with powerful tools to increase their revenues and enhance their positioning in the marketplace. We welcome Sun Cellular in joining Telogic’s growing network of alliances in our offering of this interesting and useful mobile service to a growing network exceeding 50 million subscribers.” said Mr. Low Kim Seng, Managing Director of Telogic Pte Ltd.
