"Our clients were eager to introduce it to their businesses and to their customers wherefore Zoiper for WP8 has already been customized for a number of them. We also already distributed several SDKs." said the Director of Sales Mira Georgieva.

And to no surprise are the carriers, ITSPs, and Mobile Operators impatient to introduce OTT solutions - according to the announced statistics, Windows Phone 8 is outselling Apple's iPhone in at least 24 markets and is on second place on 14 markets.

"Zoiper logically followed the lead of our technology partners." added Mira Georgieva.

Zoiper also is stably amongst the most popular softphones and is gaining bigger share in a progressive pace. Expected to penetrate new markets, its estimated market growth is close to 300% in Q2 (based on previous periods' results).

With the introduction of Windows Phone 8 support, Zoiper completes massive operating system coverage - on mobile Zoiper already runs on iOS and Android, and on desktop Zoiper supports Windows, Mac OSX, Linux and Solaris. Zoiper has highly-integrible SDKs for all common supported platforms, including for BlackBerry 10.

"Popularity is an asset indeed, but not our priority. We are developers. The only thing our team does is build softphones for 11 years. Quality is what we have always been aiming for and what requires the hardest work," commented Joachim Vanheuverzwijn, Zoiper's CTO.

The 11 years paid off and the Zoiper team got it right straight from the first releases - Zoiper for WP8 is fully packed with everything needed from end-user and business perspective: audio calls, SMS or chat (IM), contact list integration, push notifications. The Zoiper team will be packing the Zoiper app for Windows Phone 8 with features such as call transfers, conference calls and call recording to keep up with the other feature-rich Zoiper products.

This is not the first time Zoiper pioneers. The QR-code tap-provisioning was first implemented and introduced by Zoiper and completely changed the way VoIP accounts are configured on mobile devices nowadays.

A reminder - all Zoiper mobile applications, including Zoiper for WP8, come with a built-in QR-code reader button, allowing users to configure their complete VoIP accounts by simply taping on a QR-code, generated by their provider.

Any VoIP provider, VoIP-enabled enterprise, call center, and any VoIP enthusiast, can sign-up and use the QR-code provisioning platform freely and at no costs.

To have all set-up issues addressed, Zoiper avoids end-user configuration by feeding a list of recommended service providers with pre-configured settings to Zoiper's end-users.

Getting listed and configured is absolutely free of charge.

Moreover, all Zoiper applications have free versions for free download and use, and are nearly fully-packed with features.

"OTT solutions are no longer a complementary offer, they are a necessity on the mature markets and businesses on all fields have already realized it.

Users are obsessed with social communication software and services, and already expect them by default. We are highly concentrated in being the quality enabler of OTT solutions but we are also savvy in our clients' sensitive end-user markets." commented Mira Georgieva.

"We are a small company with strong positions and this allows us to afford flexibility, to build customer-oriented roadmaps and to complete projects of any sizes in budget- and time-friendly manner, while following our high quality dedication."
