    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. We also offer SIMcontrol services in Namibia, Kenya, Tanzania, Nigeria, Zimbabwe and Zambia.

    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. (Service subject to approval).

    SIM cards to suit any need

    We offer normal, micro, nano and chip SIMs across all South African mobile operators. For special industrial applications, talk to us about our exceptionally rugged ‘Plug 85’ industrial, as well as circuit-board based device SIMs.
