SIM management goes live
The Flickswitch team that included; Director Flickswitch International, Rudi Barnard (r), Manager: Key Accounts, Violet Verimuje and Managing Director, Flickswitch, Kees Snijders, last week launched their business SIM management service in Namibia.
Launched at a breakfast event in Windhoek in partnership with local telecoms operator MTC, the service is set to help companies to easily manage large numbers of SIM cards cost-effectively.
The service will now enables businesses to align their mobile communication spend with a range of MTC products, all in real time. Businesses can use the SIMcontrol website to better manage their MTC SIM cards.
“With this Flickswitch partnerships we firmly believe that it will stimulate innovation, support startups and large corporates alike, with the necessary business tools to address their mobile requirements,” said Tim Ekandjo, Chief Human Capital and Corporate Affairs Officer at MTC.
The SIMcontrol service is the first of its kind in Namibia, after being successfully launched in South Africa and Kenya. “We are building on our experience in supporting hundreds of thousands of SIMs for our customers in South Africa. Managing costs and making SIM management easier is what we do best,” said Barnard.
“The Namibian Internet of Things (IoT) market is very similar to South Africa and Kenya, with not only established sectors such as fleet management and point of sale, but also advanced agriculture, security and payment solutions picking up rapidly,” he added.
Barnad said the partnership with MTC creates an innovative mobile eco-system that gives local businesses with large scale communication needs access to self-help SIM management tools.
“Managing communication costs is an important factor in many industries and a key enabler for economic growth in these sectors,” he concluded.
