WHY HIRE SOUKTEL?

We know the development sector: It’s where we come from. Our staff have worked at funders like USAID and at organizations like Oxfam and Save the Children. We also know the mobile industry: Our tech team has worked for Africa and Asia’s leading mobile networks, from Orange to Ooredoo.  

For close to a decade, we’ve combined this development and tech expertise to build award-winning, custom mobile solutions for over 30 clients. Here’s what they love about Souktel’s unique model:

We build fully customized solutions, not cookie-cutter products.

  • Developer teams work directly with you to design platforms that meet your exact needs: Choose your language, layout, and features. Integrate the system with your own website or database.

  • Souktel trainers write custom user manuals for staff and communities. We give you customized training on system management.

We do all the mobile network set-up, so you can focus on project delivery.

  • Souktel works directly with mobile networks to set up your platform, activate hotlines, purchase airtime, and test connectivity for you.

  • We host your platform on dedicated servers in the US. Or we install the software on your own servers.

  • Our support team is available 7 days a week. With our team ready to help, your staff don't need any IT training or experience.

We reach over 500,000 mobile users across the globe.

  • With large user databases in Africa, Asia, and the Americas, we have ready-made audiences for your content and services.

We build partnerships.

  • Our former funder, NGO, and mobile network staff leverage top-tier relationships to build successful project consortiums. We work actively with our clients to bring government ministries, mobile operators, donors and communities together, through strategic planning sessions and high-level briefings. Recent multi-partner projects include a Morocco agriculture service with mobile network Orange, USAID, and the Moroccan Ministry of the Environment.

We’re thought leaders.

  • With close to 10 years of ground-level experience, we bring a wealth of knowledge to each new project. We advise USAID, the World Bank and the ILO on mobile strategy, and we publish strategic insights for MIT’s Innovations journal, the GSMA, and the Overseas Development Institute, among others.
