USSD (Unstructured Supplementary Service Data) is a live two-way interactive mobile solution, compatible with smartphones as well as feature phones. USSD allows you to display plain text that users can interact with on their handset.

Businesses can use USSD in a variety of ways. This includes surveys, competitions, lead generation campaigns, loyalty program registrations, and more. It features prominently in the financial services industry and forms the backbone of many mobile banking services. Content for USSD can be customised according to the information entered by the customer. Responses are obtained in real time with full reporting available.
