Digital Virgo’s challenge is YouScribes’ success

Digital Virgo’s challenge was supporting YouScribe’s internationalization and development in Africa. Using our expertise in alternative payment solutions we were able to develop a payment strategy that is adapted to local realities. Beyond the integration of a seamless and secure payment method, Digital Virgo built a global strategy around YouScribe’s needs.

“The success of YouScribe is largely based on micro-payment via telecom operators. From Digital Virgo (world specialist in mobile payment via telecom operator billing solutions and digital marketing) to local publishers, via Canal+ and telecom operators (Orange, Maroc Telecom, Ooredoo, Moov or Inwi), the platform has developed strong partnerships.” – Marie-France Reveillard, La Afrique Tribune.

Digital Virgo adapted their offer to market needs and realities by:

• Partnering with local publishers to integrate local content

• Developing YouScribe’s service in English and Arabic

• Implementing an efficient marketing strategy with Telecom operators.

The success speaks for itself with YouScribe now in over 10 African countries and going from strength to strength.
