About Us

APVAS’ cloud-based platform integrates advanced analytics with instant telecom companies’ event processing capabilities to understand, predict and meet telecom subscribers’ mobile needs and wants effectively and efficiently at any given time.

Our believe is that subscribers perceive real value in the convenience of having access to mobile offers that are tailored to their immediate needs. When brands are able to deliver this value to customers—they consume more—and tend to remain loyal for longer periods of time.
