Workz and Truphone strike deal to bring latest eSIM technology to new markets
Workz Group to deliver solutions to growing eSIM market through Truphone’s remote eSIM provisioning platform and SIM operating system (OS)
Workz Group, the Dubai-based mobile & IoT solutions provider today announced a partnership with Global SIM technology provider, Truphone. The collaboration will see Truphone licence its GSMA-accredited remote SIM provisioning platform and SIM operating system (OS) to Workz Group. The deal enables Workz to offer its customers state-of-the-art SIM technology – yet unavailable in the rapidly-growing market in the Middle East and Africa – while allowing Truphone to showcase its capabilities to mobile operators in new territories. Truphone SIM OS software and remote SIM provisioning platform will be integrated with Workz Group’s GSMA-accredited SIM hardware, together creating an unrivalled solution for the next revolution in mobile technology in the Middle East and beyond.
In August this year, Workz became the first GSMA eSIM factory for Africa and the Middle East—guaranteeing that its SIM chips are manufactured to the highest level of security and in compliance to international standards for compatibility.
Commenting on the new accreditation,

We are incredibly proud to work with such a reputable business and work together to support more operators in enabling eSIM—driving forward its mainstream adoption.
