SIMcontrol is a revolutionary offering from Flickswitch, providing companies with one single online platform to manage all connected mobile data devices.

With over 10 years’ experience, Flickswitch started in South Africa and expanded its SIMcontrol reach into the rest of Africa, offering Sim management on local networks as well as global roaming options that cover all African countries at cost-effective roaming rates.

By being “network agnostic”, it offers one platform to manage local and roaming Sims.

SIMcontrol is built on core mobile network infrastructure to ensure maximum reliability. Unique add-ons include location services, data session history, device setup SMSes, Sim profile lookups, an advanced API for system integration, and a technical support team that understands IoT and roaming device connectivity issues.
