The Challenge

Bringing banking and wireless under one roof

Before Zolve, getting a credit card was an intimidating experience for immigrants, filled with bureaucratic obstacles.

Zolve recognized that the same challenges apply to obtaining a US phone plan. By combining easy access to both credit cards and phone plans in one app, Zolve saw an opportunity to become the go-to solution for US-bound expats looking to hit the ground running.

Zolve faced several hurdles in finding a connectivity provider that could cater to their digital-native audience and provide all connectivity components out of the box, including:

Wireless plans with custom pricing & branding that seamlessly integrate with the Zolve app.

Carrier-grade 5G service without spending 12+ months on network negotiations and integrations.

A checkout solution covering the entire subscription lifecycle, from billing and number porting to plan activation and data top ups.

The Solution

Zolves chooses Gigs to launch a branded wireless service with zero new hires
