Mzadcom is an electronic platform for e-auctions, with a host website that provides users to sell or bid for products online.

“Vodafone is committed to ensuring the highest levels of service extended to its customers, by giving them the option to choose and own exclusive diamond and gold numbers. This step is aligned with the procedures set by the TRA as per the Telecommunications Regulatory Act Decision (No. 1/2018), which sees the allocation of diamond and gold numbers to be carried out through auctions to allow for greater transparency in the allocation process of telecommunications numbers to beneficiaries. The signing with Mzadcom further reinforces our vision of being a completely technology-driven company, since the bids will be conducted via an e-auction platform as well as entering into key partnerships with companies that have already built a strong foundation in Oman.”

Mr. Al Junaibi said that, “We are proud to be a part of Vodafone’s efforts to transform the face of the local telecommunications sector. Vodafone, as a brand, operates on a global scale and brings with it a world-class experience that augments our already existing facilities.”

“We would like to thank them for their collaboration and anticipate the positive impact that our partnership might bring, not only with regard to digitalization in Oman but also when it comes to enriching customer experience,” Mzadcom CEO added.
