SOS Mobile South Africa develops and manages the Siemens Repair Centres
(LSP – Local Service Partners) in the SADC region - Southern Africa Development Countries.,
Included in this community are: Angola, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique,
Zambia, Madagascar, Kenya and Mauritius.
One of the reasons that made SOS Mobile start its activity in Africa was the belief that its
experience can produce competitive advantages in such an emergent market.
These advantages can be summarized in 4 groups:
Telecommunications Business Knowledge
We know the telecommunications business. We’ve acquired a significant experience in a market that is,
today, one of the most developed in Africa, with innovative products and leading edge technologies that sustain extremely developed services.
We’ve been growing in a financially consistent way.
We know that in order to collect we have to invest and we’ve been investing.
All our objectives have been achieved in a perspective of innovation and enlargement of our activity.
Manufacturer recognition as EMEA “benchmark” for repair services
The proof of our competencies is the close partnership we had with our clients and the progressive
responsibilities we’ve been assuming in that relationship.
All our staff have specialized skills in sales, technical and administration.
Training is one of our biggest bets and one of our reasons for success
We want to grow in a financially consistent way.
We are ambitious but realistic. This is why we’ve been ensuring our financial health in a way that allows
us to face new challenges such as the one we are proposing now.
Everywhere we’ve been working, we’ve created important strategic relationships.
In South Africa we have a strong relationship with Vodacom, Cell-C. and MTN.
Our target is to enhance these relationships becoming preferred partners for these operators.
The South African market is a very attractive market for SOS Mobile for several reasons:
It is an emerging market, with great growth potential both in products and services;
Its competitiveness will reward a strategy of quality and detail in which we’ve been very successful;
It is a market culturally and economically favorable to the implementation of a company with SOS Mobile characteristics of quality, speed and market focus.
