WHO WE ARE

“Where Communications and Consumer Behaviour Meet!”

We live in a world where networks are ever expanding and services can be provided to and from virtually anywhere, a networked society!

Living in a networked society certainly brings a host of exciting prospects, but also raises challenges in how new technologies and services can best be applied to achieve society’s goals in adopting technology in an increasingly globalized, connected digital world.

The rapid growth of communication and social media has important implications for both users and businesses. For users – both individuals and businesses – there are an ever-expanding variety of services and applications to serve their information, communication and entertainment needs.

As a result, the ways consumer’s access and use such services is changing; moving from reliance on traditional telecom operators to Over-The-Top (OTT) providers.

OTT providers are something of a thorn in the side of Mobile Network Operators (MNOs), since their arrival in the market heralded an end to the exclusivity MNOs held over the customer relationship.

With the high proliferation of OTT options out there – there are at least 20 apps that have a subscriber base of more than 25 Millions users each – its getting harder for subscribers to choose which app to adopt that will lock them into its community of users, as this connects them to their friends, families and interests.

This is where SIMon comes in; the unanimous service design – where users can communicate over voice or messaging with other users regardless of what app they are using – provides a suitable solution to the growing dilemma. An emphasis on user experience ensures SIMon aligns to achieving society’s goals in how we adopt and apply technology today.
