During this period we have started and completed (within the sector) a large number of roaming agreements and within two years ERONET became the operator with the most commercial roaming agreements in Bosnia and Herzegovina (in comparison with the remaining operators in BiH). We successfully implemented the project of IN (Intelligent Network) system which is based on the introduction of pre-paid services in ERONET 17.6.2002. In addition, we made a whole series of smaller projects and more specifically can emphasize the introduction of SMS VAS services - project (complete solution), which is managed and conducted almost entirely within the Department. I was the coordinator of these projects.
3. 1.9.2002. – 30.6.2003. – Head of Department of billing, IN services and IT services - During this period we continued improvement of the previous activity. We increased IT security of the company. In parallel with these activities during September 2000. - June 2003. I was appointed head of the "Commission for tariff policy", which was tasked to create a complete tariff policy of the company - from the new tariffs, packages, activities and other amenities. This team was made up of professionals from different sectors (marketing, sales, finance, accounting system,...). In this period ERONET had a significant number of new tariffs, actions and general activity in the post-paid and pre-paid segment (from June 2002)., which have been successfully implemented and whose result was the growth of users and revenue in this period.
4. 1.7.2003. – 15.8.2006. – Member of the Management Board – Chief Marketing and Sales Officer – During this period ERONET was obtained by a third company in Bosnia and Herzegovina (including a complete economy) and despite all the (political) problems, ERONET grew by revenue and profit. During the period of three years, ERONET introduced GPRS services in its portfolio and a full range of services but also new tariff packages and significantly refreshed and improved its offer.
