Entertainment brand, Evoke International (Pvt) Ltd celebrated its 12th anniversary recently.

Evoke is the largest value-added service provider based in Sri Lanka offering a wide range of innovative, data driven and customer-centric products with their 360 degree in-house development team.

Some of their services include mobile app and web development, content aggregation, content production, WAP Products, SMSC, IVR & Voice Services and Digital Media.

Evoke was launched in 2008 capitalising on the rapid shift toward the digital from mainstream entertainment channels such as radio and television.

Evoke’s ever-expanding  portfolio of content featuring 1000+ movies, music of all genres and products in voice, data, WAP & app segments are widely sought after by its extensive clientele ranging from independent artists to telecommunication providers and everyone in between.

Chairman of Evoke Rajitha Basnayake said, “With Smartphone ubiquity across Sri Lanka and the region fueling consumer engagement in communication, digital entertainment, information and commerce we observe consumers transforming from ‘connected’ which is the conventional to the contemporary which is ‘digital’.”

Director and CEO Lahiru Wickramasinghe said, “Everything we have achieved over the years can be attributed to the team effort without which survival in such a dynamic industry, enjoying the first-mover advantage in most contexts, would not have been possible.”

“We plan to venture out of Sri Lanka this year to Bangladesh and the Middle East where we see great potential for what we offer – this will serve to create value for all our stakeholders as well as afford us an opportunity to showcase what Sri Lanka and Sri Lankans are capable of technologically,” he said.

 Director Rajiv Gunawardena credited Director and CEO Lahiru Wickramasinghe’s visionary leadership for the success of Evoke while also applauding the talent within the company for their respective contributions toward making Evoke vision a reality.

“We are well poised financially for expansion and we believe that to sustain the momentum we will have to be innovative because the industry we are in is subject to constant change and evolvement. We look forward embarking on new projects, new avenues and new markets in years to come,” he said.
