We procure and finance all technology equipment for network partners such as smartphones, feature phones, tablets and computers. Our structure allows for the financing to be completely off balance sheet thereby enhancing EBITDA and cash flow.
We have launched several innovative mobile financial services such as Lifesaver — a product that allows a user to recharge with airtime and get the additional benefit of funeral cover.
Airvantage has a suite of value added services to increase brand loyalty, ARPU and decrease churn.
Managed Value Added Services (VAS)
We have been providing managed value added services (VAS) for mobile operators in Africa since 2001. Mobile value added services (mVAS) have progressed a long way since simple ringtone offerings. There is an increasing appetite for a wide range of on-demand information and entertainment services among mobile subscribers.
Infotainment value added services, ranging from daily jokes, to health tips, football goal alerts and money transfers are now a major revenue stream for mobile operators.
VAS for business value

Building a fully structured set of mobile value added services is essential for mobile operators looking to attract and retain mobile subscribers and raise ARPU. We have proven experience in identifying opportunities for new mobile value added services to broaden a mobile operator’s VAS portfolio.
We successfully create and implement managed VAS solutions to maximize a mobile operator’s revenue.
