Krakow, Poland, June 06, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Since February Polkomtel S.A. offers a custom ringback tones service, called Czasoumilacz (EnTIMEteiner). The service enables Polkomtel’s customers to replace a traditional ‘beep’ tone, heard by those who call them, with personally selected – or even personally created – songs and sound effects.
“Thanks to our cooperation with Wind Mobile, Polkomtel has been technically capable to deliver, through a scalable platform, the custom ringback tones service with a very rich music content to all Plus customers,” said Dariusz Boduch, Deputy Director, Products and Services Development Department, Polkomtel S.A. “Thanks to the original and innovative advertising campaign, prepared and carried out by Polkomtel, the service has been highly popular since it’s very launch.”
A novelty of the promotional campaign lies in creating “the first exclusively mobile” music band called The Czasoumilacze (The EnTIMEteiners). Their mission is to “put an end to the boring standard ringback signal.” The viral advertising campaign includes funny ads and information in TV, press and internet, as well as the band’s fanclub portal and blog (www.theczasoumilacze.pl).
“Polkomtel has been carrying out one of the best ringback tone service launches in the region,” said Tomasz Gniewek, VP Consulting and Sales at Wind Mobile. ”I have never seen comparable service pick-up rates in Europe. We are happy to see that the functionality of the platform is attractive to users and creates a synergy with a strong advertising campaign.”
The new service remains highly reliable and scalable thanks to a unique architecture of the system deployed by Wind Mobile – Falcon Custom Ringback Tones, which has been integrated with Plus mobile network in four independent localizations.
