With our in-house developed USSD Centre, we connect you with a huge, existing portfolio of enterprises and financial institutions, integrate with your back-end, and provide you with a full set of management tools. Digital SMS also takes care of the platform implementation, maintenance and upgrades.

Deployment: Physical and cloud

Two deployment options are available, depending on the MNO preferences and technologies. With physical deployment, USSD gateway is placed at the carrier’s premises, with direct physical connections to carrier’s infrastructure.

We cover any hardware or software costs associated with USSD Centre deployment.
