Vodi serves as an all-in-one platform by providing the free texting, calling and video calling that mobile users demand while also offering popular products and services such as eGift cards and prepaid mobile plan recharges. Other features like conversational search and translation make chats on Vodi "smarter," allowing users to access the information they need all within a single app, as well as an exciting rewards program that keeps users engaged.
Meanwhile, our live voting and Stars for Charity platforms let users interact with the events and influencers they care about. Products coming on in the near future include bill payment and money transfer, making our already powerful app even more useful!
Launched at the beginning of 2016, Vodi reached more than 300,000 users in 160 countries around the world by the end of 2016. The app was also recognized with two awards at CTIA StartUp Lab in September 2016 – first place in the Wireless category and second place overall.
Then, in January 2017, Vodi served as the Official Global Fan Vote Sponsor for Miss Universe. Our app was one of four ways that fans around the globe could cast their votes for the next Miss Universe, and the excitement surrounding the event helped our user base grow by more than 167 percent to 800,000-plus users.
Now we’re keeping the momentum going with more exciting features, including livestreaming within the Stars for Charity platform and new events to be hosted on the live voting platform. And there’s still greater things to come from Vodi in 2017!
