In a nutshell, Procescom Virtual SIM provides mobile-to-IP and IP-to-mobile services. It allows mobile operators to capture some of the subscribers who are looking for international-to-domestic VoIP and text messaging service.
Procescom Virtual SIM service is primarily targeted at immigrants and people working abroad on temporary contracts which need to make frequent calls and send/receive text messages to their homeland by using a domestic mobile phone number. Virtual SIM users are required to purchase a virtual MSISDN number from the service pool which acts as a domestic prepaid mobile number. All voice calls and SMS text messages directed from/to this virtual phone number are transferred to the Virtual SIM service provider’s network over available IP/Wi-Fi connection.

Virtual SIM service is offered on subscriber’s phones through an Android and iOS client applications which handle the traffic whenever there is an IP/WiFi network present. These applications also allow pictures and other files to be shared between the service users. A Virtual SIM web-app is also available.
