As a leader in mobile telecommunications, Azercell tirelessly invests in the development of its operational infrastructure. Since our establishment, we have invested over 1 billion 621 million USD to create one of the most advanced communication networks in the region.
State-of-the-art processes and software help us provide essential products and services for individuals and organizations across the country. With over 1 billion 845 million AZN paid in taxes, Azercell is the leading non-oil contributor to the economy. We are proud of this achievement; it inspires us to continue on our upward trajectory towards new milestones every day.
It is impossible to imagine modern social life without mobile communications, especially mobile internet. Azercell provides over 50% of the population with easy access to information, entertainment and education. In many rural areas, mobile phones are the only reliable communication tool. During natural disasters, wartime and other emergencies, many lives have been saved by the modern technologies made accessible by Azercell.
We are acutely aware that an entire generation has grown up heavily influenced by digitization and social media, and work diligently to protect them through a variety of initiatives.
As a leading organization in a developing country, Azercell is at the very forefront of innovation across a range of criteria. We instill a creative mindset through dedicated teams, structures and processes. Our high-level, cross-functional Innoleague team evaluates complex challenges and recommends solutions. We were among the first in the country to implement special software to collect, screen and realize innovative ideas from across the organization.
This focus on innovation has made Azercell a learning center through which other local companies set their standards of customer service, project management and IT application. We are also proud to have introduced digital GSM technology, Blackberry mobile email, mobile payments, 4G connectivity and numerous other novelties to the population.
Azercell is a model of responsible employment in Azerbaijan. Over 12,000 individuals work with Azercell, either directly or in related industries.
Our values have been translated to employee relations and care.
