Global mobile solutions provider SLA Mobile has partnered with IT management solutions company Blue Turtle Technologies to bring additional direct operator billing and identity management to African and Latin American markets.
Blue Turtle is a South African Enterprise Technology company focused on optimising, enhancing and leveraging existing IT investment.
“Blue Turtle continues to search for partners that have a unique competitive advantage which solves real challenges for our clients,” said Justin Arnoldi, operations manager of Blue Turtle’s Application Management sector. “In the last year, we have seen the market demand for direct operator billing grow at a staggering rate, as operators start to see the revenue opportunities.”
“These new revenue opportunities are critical for operators as margins from traditional services (especially voice) are starting to decline,” he added. “From both a technology and thought leadership perspective, SLA Mobile is the clear leader in the market and we are very excited to be partnering”.
