Egyptian GSM provider, MobiNil has upgraded its online presence. Visitors to the site will be able to access a variety of services including corporate news, detailed product and service descriptions, financial results, business calendars and annual reports.

“This new web site gives MobiNil a comprehensive online presence which supports expanded services and increased accessibility to new and improved innovative solutions,” says Osman Sultan, president and CEO MobiNil.

The overhaul of MobiNil web site was carried out by local internet service provider, LinkdotNet. The ISP’s subsidiary, Link Development used Microsoft’s Net technologies to upgrade the site.

“We awarded LinkdotNet the contract based on its experience with leading companies and cutting-edge technology,” comments Sultan.

“We are glad to announce that LinkdotNet has effectively translated our vision and corporate strategy into a rich interactive site which will help us maintain our industry leadership position,” he adds.

Project work included the introduction of MobiNil Community. The community area has been designed to increase site traffic by incorporating access address book, notes and a personal information manager.

Screensavers, TV commercials and e-cards are also available on MobiNil’s site.

Link Development had already worked for the GSM operator, delivering numerous wireless services, including WAP, IS-SMS and MobiNil Winning Stars, an SMS-based game for subscribers.

“We have been selected by MobiNil as its development and solutions partner because of our ability to deliver a fun and functional site that powerfully supports MobiNil’s products and corporate goals,” explains Ramy Abdallah, LinkdotNet, vice president of corporate sales.
