Geosim, the UK’s leading low cost overseas SIM card distributor have appointed Textlocal to deliver their Text2TopUp service. Text2TopUp enables registered GeoSim card users to simply add credit to their GeoSim card anywhere in the world by simply sending a text to a Textlocal dedicated inbound number.
Users of GeoSim can simply text “Topup + Credit Amount” to inbound number 07786202559. A pin code is then sent to the customer’s handset which they must reply with in order to activate the download. Once activated credits are downloaded onto the customers handset.
The advantage of the GeoSim global sim card is that it significantly reduces mobile phone charges when roaming overseas. Users of the service replace their everyday SIM card with the GeoSim and pay less when they make or receive overseas calls. The service is very popular with all overseas travellers but is particularly useful to anyone off the beaten track such as Mountaineers, Yachtsmen, and Seafarers who require a very simple solution to add credit to their phones.
Geosim MD Ed Neal is delighted with SMS messaging as a way of adding customers phone credits. “SMS provides another avenue to service our customers and take payments.”
Neal continues, “we are particularly impressed by the speed and ease of setting the sms messaging service up. Within a few hours we were up and running with Textlocal. We have looked at other suppliers and Textlocal offer a far superior system. The support and knowledge offered by the technical team is also excellent.”
