Workz Group, the mobile solutions and serialization software company has announced a agreement with UK telecoms software company Simulity Labs. The Value-Added Reseller agreement sees Workz provide Simulity regional commercial and technical support for Simulity’s embedded SIM (eSIM) operating system, and remote provisioning server for distribution across the Middle East, Africa, and South East Asia.

The partnership enables Workz to provide their regional customers with remote management capabilities of mobile connected devices through eSIM technology. Workz expects to support device manufacturers, technology enablers, mobile network operators and other businesses looking to benefit from the new eSIM technology in the M2M, automotive, mobile devices and medical fields. Some of the first use cases demonstrate roaming flexibility, big data for analytics and AI to automate operations. Workz will offer clients local support, regional testbed capabilities to finalize their proof of concept before moving to the implementation stage.

This agreement is considered by both Workz and Simulity as an extension of services and a further strengthening of their relationship as both companies have been in partnership since 2010, working together on a range of UICC SIM services for mobile network operators.

Commenting on the agreement, Workz CEO Brad Taylor said “Our eSIM, OTA, and remote provisioning solutions allow customers to realize their IoT development strategy whether it be competitively-priced multi-IMSI SIMs, roaming data, device management, big data management or automation. For rapid deployment and cost-savings, we will provide a fully secure online SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) connected management solution. We are, currently, in the final stage of becoming certified under the GSMA Security Accreditation Scheme for traditional UICC SIM cards and will shortly be applying for its eSIM (embedded SIM) counterpart, in order, to give customers full confidence in our secure data management systems. We expect our relationships across the IOT value chain will allow us to deploy and manage devices across a wide range of solutions and a host of industries.”

Simulity founder and CEO, Stephane Fund added: “Simulity is delighted to further develop our strong working partnership with Workz and believe that this agreement will grow the international footprint of both companies.”
