The Telfree Group is a privately-owned group of companies headquartered in Switzerland, which provide value-added communication services of the next generation around the world. Telfree has positioned itself to penetrate the ‘last growth market’ – namely, Africa and other emerging markets, with its largest operations in South Africa.
In its current position, Telfree has the potent blend of being able to compete on a level playing field with incumbent operators, through its full operator SS7 (highest quality) carrier capabilities for voice and SMS, as well as provide value-added services that leverage IP connectivity like presence, instant messaging and push email, through its desktop and mobile applications, far ahead of any other player in the market. Telfree has achieved the ideal of unified communications across a range of products for the mobile phone, the computer/laptop and office PBX systems, thereby creating a user experience across multiple platforms. Telfree has successfully pursued the ultimate combination of the ‘old’ and the ‘new’ of telecommunications.
Instrumental to Telfree’s competitive advantage is the Group’s vision to utilise the burgeoning capabilities of the mobile phone to provide reliable, efficient communication. These handsets are used to create a mobile platform with the power to enable cost-effective voice communication, as well as a large array of related communication methods – all from the palm of a user’s hand. Key to this vision is Telfree's investment and partnership with the South African company, Yeigo Communications, an early pioneer in mobile application development.
Telfree’s ultimate goal is to create new opportunities to communicate, and to improve how the world communicates, by unifying different mediums across more platforms. Today, Telfree stands on the forefront of tomorrows’ global communication standard.
