GTS-Infotel, Nigeria’s leading licensed Value Added Service (VAS) provider, in Lagos unveiled a revolutionary mobile numbering system called ‘Mobinawa’ designed to enable conversational and transactional VAS services offered by the businesses using single dedicated numbers to its consumers. These numbers (the GTS numbers) are long VAS numbers and also part of the national numbering plan in the prefix of 0700, allocated to GTS-Infotel by the Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC)
Dr. Pierre-Francois Kamanou, Founder/ CEO GTS-Infotel, during the unveiling proclaimed GTS-Infotel to be the first dedicated Business-to-Business Mobile VAS Network Operator (B2B-MVNO) enabler. Explaining the importance of GTS number to the modern day business, Dr. Kamanou said;
“The new GTS number is the ID for the digital business to communicate in the digital space. With the GTS network, many organizations 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 communication services, in terms of internal and external communications, multichannel customer services and mobile marketing”.
About the new app, Mobinawa, he said;
“With this mobile app which can be downloaded on Google play store and Apple store free of charge, it would avail many organizations 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”.
Kamanou referred to Mobinawa as a uniquely designed app meant to serve as a virtual directory and also as an automatic call attendant with Voice/SMS Contact Center services.
