NOT ON THE CURRENT EDITION
This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the RadarUnderstand more

In the last technology radar, we spoke about Vumi as a platform for using USSD as a UI for feature phones. Vumi has become very stable and its open source nature gives it appeal. In our projects, we have been able to integrate with telecommunication networks seamlessly and rapidly due to the simplicity of configuration. The platform is also readily available and scalable.
Vumi is a scalable open source messaging engine driving conversations through frugal methods on mobile devices. Vumi facilitates SMS, IM and USSD interactions between companies and their clients, health services and their patients, governments and citzens, and more. Vumi integrates with telcos and allows you to build apps on top of it easily. You only have to pay for carrier charges.
