S i2i is a one-stop service provider with a broad portfolio of Voice, Data and Computing services with a leading edge in mobile VoIP technology. Our unconventional thinking and constant reinvention allows us to facilitate more affordable global connectivity with superior quality in voice communications. Espousing the driving mantra "innovation to infinity", we, at S i2i, are committed to innovative exploration of the market, offering customers emotional delight and enduring value.
Headquartered in Singapore, S i2i (formerly known as Spice i2i Limited) has transformed itself from a one-stop service provider for voice, data and communication to a global company focused on promoting a digitally connected lifestyle through its innovative mobile phones and mobile internet solutions. Given its experience of operating in fast-growing and rapidly evolving markets, the Company has implemented its 'i2i' strategy that focuses on 'Innovation to Infinity' to bring groundbreaking new mobile products and services to emerging markets across the Asian region.
Over the course of the year, the Company has made significant progress towards the achievement of its 'i2i' strategy by expanding its footprint through brand acquisitions of 'Nexian' in Indonesia, 'WellcoM' in Thailand and the Greater Mekong Sub-region, 'CSL' in Malaysia and the creation of 'S' brand in Singapore. The strengthened market presence together with its ingrained technological expertise has created a solid platform to ride the growing band of mobile users in the region. Moving forward, S i2i is confident of meeting the evolving needs of its consumers to facilitate their aspirations for a 'SWITCH' to the Mobile Internet and the ensuing digitally connected lifestyle.
The Company operates under two business groups, namely Mobility and Technology.
S i2i Limited set up its new Mobility business unit in March 2011 to leverage on the growing demand for mobile internet solutions and products. In Mobility, the Company is primarily involved in the procurement and sale of mobile phones, which it sells through its vast retail and distributiorship network across the region.
Portfolio of leading domestic mobile phone brands
The Company has acquired a host of leading mobile phone brands around the region, namely CSL, WellcoM and Nexian. This allows the Company to tap into each brands' uniquely built up brand equity and combined retail network of more than 3,200 outlets across the region.
Strength along the supply chain
As the largest producer of Dual SIM mobile phones in the region, S i2i has garnered greater bargaining power when procuring supplies along the supply chain. The Company has also taken decisive steps to build up its technological capabilities, having entered into a strategic partnership with Mediatek Inc. through its sister company "Spice Digital". The partnership allows S i2i to tap onto Mediatek's chipset technologies which are currently used by top mobile phone brands across the globe.
Mobile value-added services
Extending beyond traditional hardware for mobile phones, S i2i's range of feature and smart phones come embedded with its rich offering of mobile solutions including push mail, social networking options, analogue TV and customized Value-Added Services. S i2i offers a host of mobile Value-Added Services like S-Unno (a mobile application that allows users to make calls to anyone in the world at low cost rates) that encourages greater user stickiness.
