VImage

VImage was developed with one focus in mind. A picture says a thousand words. VImage allows users to load pictures with descriptions onto a web site and making it at the same time accessible for people to view on their cellular devices.

INTRODUCTION

3 Years ago the capability of mobile phones were limited to text messages and voice calls. Only a selected number of phones which were expensively priced could view a photo or video. Over the years this has changed and 80% of all cellular phones distributed within the mobile market today are multimedia ready thus opening the door to so much more within the mobile phone market.

Stafford Maisie (Country Manager, Google SA) says: "Seventy- eight percent of all people that own mobile phones don't own PCs. More than 85 percent of that 78 percent will not own a PC in their entire lives. So I think the world is changing and if I look at the mobile device I think that is an opportunity to have every African connected - even if they're not able to afford PCs."

South Africa is one of the biggest users of mobile phones worldwide, and trend gurus predict that as mobile phones become more powerful and versatile, they will become the preferred technology for Internet access. There's a golden opportunity for education and literacy in this online connectivity.

It is because of the market trend that Virtual Telecommunications develops mobile products that will serve the correct and effective purpose for now and the future for the African information market.

HOW DOES IT WORK FOR THE OWNER OF THE PRODUCT?

The owner of a life long license for VImage will be provided with a username and password after registering with VImage. When logging in, the system will allow the user to add, modify or delete entries. Each entry consists of a heading and 4 pictures with descriptions. After an entry has been made an automatically generated code will be provided to the user. This code is what we call the result code in VImage terms. The result code is then advertised i.e. sms result code to the VImage
number (35955).

VImage has been built to achieve two goals in mind – user friendliness for the user utilizing the platform as an advertising model as well as providing the user doing the search an easy to use directory search by merely sending a single sms to receive information.

HOW DOES IT WORK FOR THE MOBILE USER DOING THE SEARCH?

The mobile user will be provided with a result code that he is required to sms to the VImage short code (35955). After sending this text message to the short code two things happen. The user will receive a sms with a link on his phone that he is required to select, after selecting this link the images and information linked to this code will be displayed. At the same time the owner of this result code (the user who loaded the information onto the VImage website) receives a sms with the details of the person who did the search, so in essence the VImage platform creates a sales lead for the owner of the result code.
