Advanced SIM management system

Flickswitch helps companies to connect all their devices to the internet cost-effectively, easy, reliably and quickly. SIMcontrol is a bulk SIM management service that allows you to better manage large numbers of 2G, 3G & LTE business SIM cards via a single online platform.

SIMcontrol is prepaid for business

Login to the SIMcontrol self-help online platform anytime and anywhere on your Mac, PC, tablet or phone.

Cost-effective

SIMcontrol enables you to cap your costs and monitor usage in real time. By doing this, you eliminate the risk of SIM abuse and save on data and SIM management costs. Never experience bill-shock again.

Quick

We supply SIM cards to your door in bulk, RICA them on your behalf and help you with provisioning and activation.

Easy

SIMcontrol is prepaid. No contracts or volume commitments. You pay only for what you need and when you need it. You can add or remove SIMs managed as you need them with the click of a button via our simple online SIM administration system.

    Our solution is feature-rich, allowing you to do complex tasks such as reporting on usage of a particular group of SIMs over any defined period of time. You can get individual SIM information straight from the system and easily export this information to further process in your application of choice. Recharge reporting is just as easy, allowing you to fine-tune your own recharge rules, be that for moisture-monitoring, vehicle tracking or remote controlling of drones. This level of reporting is also extremely useful for trouble-shooting and identifying problem devices or firmware.

    Multi-network

    Recharge prepaid SIMs based on customisable rules on any South African mobile network. If you use Vodacom you can also monitor usage in near real-time or look up the location of your devices using advanced cellphone tower triangulation.

    Bulk actions

    Manage your entire base of M2M or IOT SIM cards with a single self-help tool. Ask us to help with bulk RICA requirements and set custom spending caps and SIM-level limits on any group of your SIMs.

    Usage reporting

    Report on the usage of your SIMs – detailed standard reporting includes the day of usage and the amount of usage split between airtime, sms and data.

    Recharge reporting

    Report on the dates, times, bundle types and cost of all of your SIMs going back as far as you want in time.

    SIM location service

    Use the mobile network to find the location of your GSM devices. Ideal for asset audits or finding lost or stolen devices. Receive comprehensive co-ordinates report plus a live Google Map view.
