Souktel is a web-based application/web service. It can be managed online or by SMS from a mobile handset--so people in different locations can all use it together and it is not tied to a single computer and handset. It's SMS-based, so it works on any basic phone handset. It's connected directly to national mobile network gateways, so partners can send thousands of messages instantly without problems. No USB modems required. It's custom-built to meet specific project needs: We work directly with partners to integrate apps into your website, your project activities, and your community. It's developed by people in crisis zones, for people in crisis zones: All apps are created in Palestine for use in Gaza, Iraq, Sudan, Somalia and other hard-to-access regions. It's deliberately designed for Arabic-script languages like Standard Arabic, Urdu, Kurdish and Farsi (but all apps work in English script too).
