USSD Application Development & Integration

Make your services universally accessible on any mobile phone, both smartphones and non-smartphones "Kabambe".

Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD) is a text menu driven protocol used by GSM cellphones allowing users to interact with an application through a network operator.

Enable your customers to interact with your application without Internet connectivity. USSD services provide your customers with a seamless connection to your application offering them an interactive session.

Simply dialing a shortcode e.g. *243# on their phone... they connect to your application.

The customer can initiate various functions of your application like user registration, account balance query, check status, make a payment, and many more depending on the set functionalities of your application/system. Dialing the shortcode initiates a real-time session between the customer and the USSD Integrated application, website, or system.

What Ziprof will Offer

We help enterprises develop USSD applications including hosting the application, programming the logic, database structure design or simply integrating to an existing system or application.

Ziprof can also assist you in the registration of your shortcode. There are two types of shortcodes

  • Dedicated Shortcode - This is a three-digit code for example *483# that is used solely by one user for their company or service.
  • Shared Shortcode - This is a code that is used by multiple companies or services. Each company is allocated a channel on our dedicated codes, for example, *483*15#

We will develop and easily integrate a reliable USSD and start delivering scalable solutions to your customers. With integration, we will ensure your customers don’t go an extra cost of accessing the service over the internet but simply through a short dial code to complete all their transactions on goods and services.
