Barcelona, Spain. Ooredoo is bringing the immense benefits of digital technology to millions of previously unconnected people in Myanmar and Maldives through its cutting-edge Supernet, innovative apps and partnerships with public and private organisations, in line with the GSMA’s commitment to deliver digital inclusion for all.

In Myanmar, a country of more than 53 million people, Ooredoo is revolutionising 800,000 customers’ worlds through its My Ooredoo app.

The one-stop mobile app offers everything from live streaming platforms to account information, purchase packs, value-added services, rewards programmes and world-class content.

As 65 per cent of Myanmar’s population is rural, Ooredoo Myanmar has launched the ‘rural IVR’ service, specially designed to provide farmers and the rural population with a digital solution that can help them on a daily basis.

With this service, farmers can call a number (456) for free to get all the information that is relevant to their work, like the weather forecast, daily crop prices and others. To keep them engaged and entertained, the farmers can listen to music and daily astrology news as an add-on via IVR. The service is currently seeing a huge pick up with more than 1.4 million customers already using it.

Ooredoo is creating a sustainable partner model with women entrepreneurs and rural digital experts to help spread the benefits of digital inclusion throughout Myanmar. Ooredoo has rolled out 450 rural kiosks in remote villages nationwide, opening up a world of digital experiences while also boosting employment and entrepreneurship at the local level.

Evee also provides ease of access to Ooredoo’s customer service through Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter and more.

Evee answers query based on its training and keep learning, building its intelligence as it responds to customers’ calls.

Ooredoo launched Moolee ‘Make a connection and strong growth’ in Maldivian, an innovative e-commerce market, which integrates into Ooredoo’s mobile app with loyalty programmes, paying for goods and services, and ordering deliveries.
