VimpelCom is the second largest mobile operator in Russia with over 64 million subscribers and 40% market share. VimpelCom's license covers a territory with a population of about 340 million people. VimpelCom wanted the flexibility to rapidly launch, deploy and charge for new services in a very highly competitive market. To meet customer demand and create competitive differentiation, VimpelCom needed to perform a global upgrade to its existing payment system, but in a manner that would allow them to cost effectively manage their subscriber growth. To master these needs VimpelCom chose Kabira Technologies. Kabira Technologies deployed the Kabira transaction platform for mobile payments; VimpelCom was able to significantly reduce its "Zero balance" period while also offering multiple new payments and card types.
