The presentation will feature Turkcell’s success story on digital transformation along with its business model hedging strategy.
The company has cracked the code of growth and value creation in the industry by investing in building its own digital apps and services which enhanced the value proposition to both retail and corporate customers. Developed in-house, these apps and services have significantly increased customer engagement and have propelled Turkcell to be a market-defining player in areas as diverse as instant messaging and VoIP, TV, music, personal cloud and digital publishing.
The company further expanded its digital capabilities to cover and to offer traffic management, digital identity authentication and mobile payment services, investing in areas that have significant monetization potential in today’s digitized economy.
The ratio of Turkcell mobile subscribers using at least one of Turkcell’s digital service reached 64%, while the company also contributed to the digital integration of various vertical industries from health to transportation. All these efforts resulted in a 59% top-line growth in a two-year cumulative period in the third quarter of 2018.
