Established to develop competitive services and products in information and communication technology, Turkcell Teknoloji stands out as one of Turkey's leading R&D and innovation companies. In 2007, the decision was made to establish a techno-park company and enable R&D staff specialized in information and communication technologies within Turkcell since 1994, to continue their R&D and innovative activities in an optimal setting. Accordingly, in 2008, a building was constructed for Turkcell Teknoloji in the Technology Free Zone; designed with a 500-person capacity, the goal was to establish the most favorable living and working environment for those engineers responsible for software research and development. This building ranked first in the Architectural Design Awards held in Turkey in 2010.
Developing services and products in areas including customer relations and channel management, mobile marketing, business intelligence solutions, SIM assets and services management, roaming solutions, value-added services, operational and business support systems, Turkcell Teknoloji employs 360 highly qualified engineers as of 2010. As the first and the sole company from Turkey to become a member of CISQ (Consortium for IT Software Quality), which is setting global standards of software quality, Turkcell Teknoloji focuses on changing, transforming and simplifying people's lives through its innovative and customer-oriented approach. Products under development on in-house platforms incorporate the creative ideas of our employees. The value given to innovative and creative ideas is demonstrated by the increasing number of patents that Turkcell Teknoloji obtains each year. Turkcell Teknoloji establishes partnerships with national and international R&D companies, universities and research centers within its eco-system to develop new ideas, and to transform them into value-added products. Playing an active role in international R&D programs, Turkcell Teknoloji is also working with leading R&D technology companies and universities abroad.
Ensuring the international expansion of differentiating products and solutions of Turkcell and its Group companies, and thus creating value for other operators as well, Turkcell Teknoloji carries out successful technology and software export operations to the CIS, Middle East, Africa, and Europe, and aims to become a world brand in its area.
