Celltick, the market leader in Home Screen Mobile Marketing, announces the expansion of its Indian subsidiary along with the appointment of a new Managing Director to lead continued growth of the business.
Celltick’s LiveScreen mobile marketing solution is deployed and operated as a fully managed service at mobile operators, offering broad reach to their consumer base. Celltick partners with an extensive network of regional content providers and media agencies to ensure a wide variety of regionalized content services.
LiveScreen publishes content directly to the consumer’s mobile home screen when the phone is in an idle mode. The content appears silently and non-intrusively, delivering news headlines, sport updates, games, traffic and other targeted useful information as well as advertising and promotions. Consumers engage with the service through an interactive dialog on their home screen guiding them to further options for mobile content consumption.
"I am excited about the potential of Celltick in the Indian market. Celltick is a pioneer in the convergence of media and mobility and its unique patented technology enables access to hundreds of millions of mobile consumers daily in one of the largest and fastest growing mobile markets” comments Abraham Punnoose, new Managing Director of Celltick India. "Celltick has a proven track record of servicing operators in India including tier 1 operators and I look forward to developing the business further and building our network of partnerships to deliver continued benefits to our customers and their consumers,” he added.
India currently has a mobile subscriber base of over 650 million which is growing rapidly. Celltick has the capability to reach more than 400 million mobile consumers through its current contracted customers on their networks.
