In the era of business-to-business (B2B), one company stands above the rest when it comes to delivering communication solutions that are not only end to end but also secure whilst being business centered. Wirepick has become the African standard for messaging for not only financial technology using entities but for Governments across Africa.
Established over 10 years ago, Wirepick has carries traffic that is over circa. 10 million SMS per day across the 25 African countries it operates. This includes the provision of VAS services to a number of industries in those countries.
With governments, such as the Zambian one which has recently shown a positive trend of supporting technology companies, Wirepick can only be pleased with recent declarations by legislators who are keen to see the sector grow.
“At present, we are happy to work with fintechs because we too are a software development company”, said Frank Banda CEO of Wirepick Zambia during a sit-down interview with this author. “We can help fintechs as well as governments meet their objectives”.
Wirepick is also bullish about the Zambian Governments intentions of opening up the communications sector. “With the government service bus opening up, and fintechs needing access to those services, we would like to tap into that and connect companies that do not have the capabilities to access those services”. Wirepick views the investment that Government seeks to make as well as the creation of a Ministry of Technology which will look into affairs of the sector as a commitment to driving growth.
WIREPICK started operations over 10 years ago and the company currently carries traffic of over 10,000,000 (TEN MILLION) SMS per day across the countries of operations. Wirepick is currently in 25 African countries driving messaging and VAS services in their industry.
