GTS-Infotel, a top licensed value added service (VAS) provider in Nigeria, unveiled its disruptive “GTS Network” with its new Mobinawa mobile application at the recently concluded Nigeria Com, held in Lagos recently.
GTS Network is a new virtual network independent from GSM Networks, designed for the provision of end-to-end local and secure digital mobile value-added communication services between business customers.
During his presentation, Pierre-François Kamanou, Founder/CEO of GTS-Infotel, introduced the GTS Network as a new digital mobile communications network, enabling conversational and transactional VAS services offered by businesses using single dedicated GTS numbers to consumers using a mobile app called ‘Mobinawa’.
He explained that the GTS numbers are long VAS numbers, part of the national numbering plan in the prefix of 0700, allocated by the Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC) to GTS-Infotel.
With the unveiling of the GTS Network with Mobinawa App, GTS Infotel has reaffirmed its position as the foremost VAS operator in Nigeria.
Speaking to media representatives at the event, Pierre-François Kamanou said that the importance of a GTS number to the modern day business is that; “The new GTS number is the ID for the digital business to communicate in the digital space .
With the GTS network, many organisations which have not digitised their communications by using multiple mobile and fixed numbers for voice conversational services and short codes for SMS/USSD transactional services, would now use a single GTS number for all their digital communications services, in terms of internal and external communications, multichannel customer services and mobile marketing,” he added.
Unlike other over the top (OTT) applications, Mobinawa is designed to serve as a directory of automatic call attendant and Voice/SMS contact centre services of local businesses in the GTS Network.
“With this mobile app which can be downloaded on Google play store and Apple store free of charge, it would avail many organisations the opportunity to be found in the online directory with their profiles, thereby boosting their visibility. The application runs on the internet and calls can be received and made free of charge in any part of the world without roaming charged accrued”, Pierre-François Kamanou said.
