About Viamo

Mobile technology is transforming how businesses interact with their customers. More than 96% of the world’s population owns a mobile phone, making it feasible to contact practically everyone on the planet. Nonetheless, 3 billion individuals in emerging countries continue to lack access to relevant, accessible, and compelling information in their native languages, and their voices go unheard. Organizations serving them lack the technology and ability to reach them, and many are unaware of the power of mobile technology to achieve organizational goals.

Viamo uses digital technology to connect individuals and companies in order to make better decisions.

Callers will use their phones to select from hundreds of recorded voice messages to assist them in making informed decisions and better their lives in a series of “listen, then choose” processes.
