SIMPLUS - No. 1 in sms solutions. Since 2002

About EUROVISION at “See you on TVR”

One week after the Eurovision 2010 Final of March 6 , the organiser of the event, TVR, broadcast today an edition dedicated to the winners, inviting on the set of the “See you on TVR” show, moderated by Marina Almasan, those who contributed to the development of the event.
Of course, the protagonists were  Paula Seling and Ovidiu Cernauteanu, the winners who will represent Romania in Oslo.

Simplus Invest, the company which provided the entire televoting solution of the event, was represented by Dan Boabes (general manager). He spoke about the method of voting by SMS and by phone call to free green numbers (this year it was the first time when the competitors could be voted for free as well, and a record number of calls was registered), about the behaviour of the user who has at his/her disposal a free service (”there were hundreds of people who called in order to vote for all the 16 songs”), answered the questions related to the technical solution provided for televoting (”hundreds of telephone lines were made available for voting within the limit of the budget allotted by the organiser, (…) the capacity was three times larger than the largest call-center of a television in Romania”), confirming once again the good operation of the voting system.  There were almost 200,000 calls, out of which 117,000  valid votes; several hundreds of viewers called for all the 16 songs present in the contest.

Green numbers are toll-free, the called party (the organiser) paying for the cost of these calls. Therefore, the configuration process of the budget is very important, as the technical resources which may be allotted to such a project are also based on it.

As the hostess of the show, Marina Almasan, noted, the public liked the fact that the feedback message that they received after voting by phone came right from the voted artist. Each number allotted to each artist had a thank you message for the vote recorded by the respective artists themselves.


At the end of the show a software application implemented by Simplus extracted live one of the telephone numbers that voted in the Eurovision 2010 final.  Thus, the owner of this number won a trip for two people to Oslo.



And, since a success was being celebrated, the show ended with the strains of the winning song “Playing with fire”, the savouring of delicious Romanian forcemeat rolls of cabbage, which Paula Seling’s parents, who came all the way from Baia Mare, had brought hot and kept in clay pots covered by blankets in order to keep them tasty.
