NIGERIA’s leading licensed Value Added Service (VAS) provider, GTS-Infotel, has introduced a revolutionary mobile numbering system called “Mobinawa”.
Speaking at the unveiling in Lagos, founder/CEO of the company, Dr. Pierre-François Kamanou, said that GTS-Infotel is now positioned as the first dedicated ‘Business to Business Mobile VAS Network Operator’ (B2B-MVNO) enabler.
Mobinawa which is designed to ride on GTS Network as a new digital mobile communications network, enables conversational and transactional VAS services offered by businesses using single dedicated numbers to consumers. The GTS numbers are long VAS numbers and 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, Kamanou, explained the importance of GTS number to the modern day business.
“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 digitized 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 said.
Mobinawa is uniquely designed to serve as a virtual directory and automatic call attendant with Voice/SMS Contact Center services.
“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 charge”, Dr. Pierre-François Kamanou added.
