"One step ahead of the needs of the Mobile Internet Society."
The idea of mobile society has seen drastic changes over the past decade. Mobile phones have progressed from being a single function device to a multi-faceted and lifestyle oriented device which allow users to stay connected, anytime, anywhere. S i2i is determined to be a significant part of the digital revolution.
To achieve this, we have made significant progress by expanding our footprint through brand acquisitions of 'Nexian' in Indonesia, 'Wellcom' in Thialand and the Greater Mekong Sob-region, 'CSL' in Malaysia and the creation of the ‘S’ brand in Singapore. With our new acquisitions, we now have access to more than 3,200 outlets in Indonesia, Thailand and Malaysia. These will soon be consolidated under one single digital "S" brand, allowing us to exploit our global supply chain.
Significantly, the brand acquisitions provide us a ready platform to pre-load our wide range of mobile internet applications onto phones directly sold to consumers. These include the incorporation of entertainment, information, healthcare, financial, transactional and other Value Added Services (VAS) onto our upcoming models of phones. Together with potential revenues from advertising, this provides us another avenue to enhance value growth.
As the industry becomes increasingly commoditised, it will be up to enterprises like S i2i to bridge the gap between sleek hardware features and innovative software solutions that will satisfy the evolving needs of consumers. Indeed, we intend to create a whole "S" brand internet lifestyle for users of our products.
