With the motto of “STAY CONNECTED, GET REWARDED”, Gorilla works with over 500 mobile operators across 190 countries, providing affordable roaming mobile data to business travelers in the SEA region and around the world through its proprietary e-SIM product. Embedded in the user’s mobile phone as a virtual SIM card, which eliminates the need for a physical SIM card, e-SIM technology offers the convenience of managing multiple cellular providers on a single device for traveling abroad and even separate plans for personal and business purposes. And later in 2023, Gorilla will launch its revolutionary Switchback Rewards feature, which allows any unused mobile data and credit to be converted into SOPA Loyalty Points and redeemed for rewards and offers across the SOPA platform. With a virtual mobile number, Gorilla’s users access cost-effective data plans to enjoy a reliable internet connection worldwide. And through its tiered data plans, Gorilla’s customers enjoy global mobile internet and have full control over their data spending.

Asia Pacific currently has over 100 million business travelers, representing more than 30% of the world’s market. According to Amadeus, by 2025, corporate travel spending in Asia Pacific is forecast to double and account for half of the world’s total. Rokas Sidlauskas, Chief Marketing Officer of SoPa, elaborates, “Gorilla’s next-generation technology is targeted to the fast-growing business travel segment here in SEA. Our digital e-SIM product allows customers to buy data credit and to stay connected online with their mobile devices while traveling abroad. By 2H 2023, our suite of services will expand into local e-SIM provisions.
