4 March 2014


MTN is proud to bring the first Family & Friends Finder service to Côte d'Ivoire

MTN T’es ou offers peace of mind; safety for individuals, employees and families everywhere in Côte d'Ivoire. Now a father or a mother can check where their children are to ensure that they are where they are expected to be and where they are going. Children can also alert parents in distressful situations with their location information.

Companies can use this same tool to locate their employees on the go e.g. field engineers, couriers, sales representatives and drivers. Employee location can be used to allocate the right person to perform the right task optimizing quick response and use of resources. In addition, friends can share their location conveniently without disrupting the others.

T’es ou service supports all the phones in Côte d'Ivoire and landmark locations enable everybody to understand locations. A user just sends keywords to a number 410 or uses smartphone app that can be downloaded in MTN T’es ou website. User privacy is fully protected. Consent is always required for locating the other person.

"Gecko Landmarks is excited to partner with MTN Côte d'Ivoire to bring this helpful everyday service to the market. MTN T’es ou improves quality of life and creates a new dimension in MTN’s service bouquet." said Pasi Riipinen, CEO, Gecko Landmarks.
