Unique Technology with a Market Edge

Simtex's development process has emerged at the perfect time, and today it stands at a push point to become one of the top leading firms in the industry.

The E-sim technology, led by Apple, is the most updated and innovative development when looking on the cellular communication world. In the next couple of years, we'll see this technology take over this area completely.     

Simtex is one of the first entrepreneurship providing products using this technology, and therefore it can be integrated as one of the leading players in this field.

 

Strong Team with +30 Years Experience in the Field

The timing we entered into this world has created us a very positive momentum to go forward with. and recently Yaakov Vind, a well-known businessman with a rich experience of over 30 years in the top firms, such as Apple, E*trade and Comverse, joined the Simtex advisory board.

 

 

Pitch

The idea

 

The Need 

Today, almost everyone travelling abroad, whether for business or vacation purposes

are planning to buy a cellular package as a basic part of their trip.

Taking this into consideration, it's almost inconceivable when you look at the solutions that exists today.

The telecom providers offer expensive non-worthy packages and then there is the other option of buying a sim card at your destination.

In both cases we’re observing antique solutions for a common issue. People keep wandering around godforsaken places in order to find proper manual sim cards to insert in their device. This costs us time, money, and lots of energy. This method of dealing with the situation suits more ancient times that we have surpassed long ago. 

Simtex solves these struggles with an easy solution.

An efficient, accessible and cheap way to get over these obstacles with minimum energy investment.

The need for the app will become more significant over the next few years.

More people are traveliing, and Cellphones are such an integral part of this modern reality. All the apps we're using are creating an inseparable commitment to our devices, Think about Waze, google maps, Uber, Tripadvisor, airbnb.

These are just a few of the app’s we are depending on, and that we can't even imagine travelling without them on our cell . Although Wi-fi services are growing and spreading, it's far from being a the ultimate solution.

Aside from the accessibility and the simple usage,Simtex is bringing another thing we can't ignore - revolutionary transparency in the way of presenting all the options that are available for the end user- the traveler.

 

The solution

The idea behind Simtex, is creating an easy to use solution - an app, that will make traveler’s life much simpler when planning their next trip. Just open the Simtex app, choose the best package for you and forget you've ever needed to think about it.

When looking closely at this product, one can tell that it has a huge advantage over the other options, therefore it will shortly turn to be the default solution.

The Customer will get his own personal package, in such a simple way, and it will be even cheaper for him.The Telecom providers will also benefit from this, by saving workforce and resources, that up until now has been invested in this outdated process of selling manual sim cards.

 

 

The technology

E- sim technology was developed at the beginning of the last decade and in 2015 it entered the IOT world. Lately, in 2018, this technology penetrated also to the telecom field.

This E-sim is in practice a small electronic component embedded in the newest cell phones, eliminating the use of the old manual sim cards.  The E-sim contains many users' profile, thus allows simple roaming between different cellular providers. In this reality, all this process will occur in the software side instead of the hardware, using apps or QR code.Finally, we will no longer be slaves of these little cards.

 

These days, Simtex operates a pilot service called - 'Simtex Alpha', offering an attractive cellular data packages, while still using a tangible sim card.

The thousands of current customers are already giving us vital feedback from the field. Furthermore, the profit from these customers will be used for the E-sim platform development.

 

Alongside the specific cellular packages market, which itself is estimated at almost 31 B$, there is another channel to pay attention to - BD (Big Data). The company will maintain a lot of information regarding people’s travel habits, preferred destinations, etc., and thus could specify the marketing ads to be accurate for the clients.

It's no secret that this data is worth a lot, especially for advertisers and AdTech firms.

Almost any firm in the traveling world- travelling agencies, airlines, will be thrilled to get such information.

The company is currently in the final stage of capital raising in order to develop the finished product - based on the E-sim tech.

The launching of the Alpha version is expected to be at the beginning of Q4 2019, and we estimate that in a year and a half’s time, the finished product will be out to the market.
