Launching operations as a greenfield operator in Oman, Vodafone had little experience in running ground operations in the region. On top of that, there were established competitors in the market; 6 mobile network operators catering to a population of approximately 4 million.
To address the diverse needs of Vodafone Oman’s digital journey, Seamless implemented its comprehensive Retail Value Management (RVM) suite. This encompassed solutions ranging from distribution chain management to order and payment fulfillment, route & on-field tracking, incentive management, and even digital customer onboarding through omni-channel support.
Seamless delivered a holistic approach, covering every functional need in Vodafone Oman’s sales and distribution processes. The RVM suite ensured a seamless integration of digital and physical aspects, providing a unified platform to streamline operations.
