NewsSouth-East European INDUSTRIAL Мarket - issue 6/2005

The boom in Eastern Europe has opened up great business opportunities for the Telecom & Banking division of Munich-based Elatec GmbH. The specialist in card-based mobile communications and bank applications has sold 70,000 credit cards to the United Bank of Bulgaria (UBB) and has received an even larger order from BH Telekom, said from the company. The Bosnian mobile network operator has chosen Elatec as its exclusive provider of SIM cards and SIM packages, laying the technological foundation for new applications and services.

Elatec beat the competition for the BH Telekom order with its 32K Java SIM card. The bid was accepted primarily on the basis of comprehensive quality and function tests conducted by the mobile network operator. Delivering prepaid scratch cards and SIM packages to Voljamobil, Elatec successfully acquired another customer in the mobile telecommunications sector. Voljamobil is one of the fastest growing mobile communication firms in Slovenia. Similar to BH Telekom, the company relies on state-of-the-art technologies and innovative services.
