The first ever MTN Business annual fair in Accra ended successfully with key participating firms giving the telecommunications operator high rating in the country for networking and allied services.
Executives of software development companies, Rancard Solutions, Teksol Limited, and SMSGH took turns to commend MTN, crediting it with world-class technology-based products and support services for businesses.
Other businesses that took advantage of the rich platform were Fidelity Bank, which had on display its SMART Account portfolio that takes only minutes to complete and virtually deposit-free, and the Ghana Investments Promotion Centre (GIPC).
On display at the MTN Business were MTN Audio Conference; MTN Mobile Money; MTN Cloud Services; Eazifon; Car Tracking; Connectivity (including dedicated Internet, leased lines, APN solutions, bundle offers, hosted PBX and allied data and security services); and MTN Directory among others.
Speaker after speaker told of how the network, which boasts of nationwide coverage, was the only one among many they tried, could help their dream businesses materialise.
The CEO of Teksol, Mr Louis Amenyo Adanuty, said his outfit had won a big contract with a company to deploy a technology that required the provision of a reliable and far spread network “and after wasting time and money with other networks, it was only MTN that came to the rescue.”
“We were on the verge of losing the contract, but thanks to MTN, they solved our challenge in record time.”
For the CEO of SMSGH, Mr Alex Adjei-Bram, who predicted rather philosophically that payments would soon be a function of communication rather than banking, technology-based solutions have been made possible and cheap too as a result of the opportunities for collaboration.
The Chief Information Officer of Rancard, Ebow Bentil, whose company specialises in software solutions provision, recommended MTN as the one network to look to, in deploying technology and for support. He said network quality and spread were key for market penetration and those were qualities assured at MTN.
Mr Michael Ghartey, Key Accounts Manager (ISP & Bulk Carriers, MTN Business), said if anyone was in doubt about MTN’s pedigree, the unsolicited testimonies should convince all that the network was serious with what it promised.
He invited businesses to test the company’s products for their reliability, value for money and low risk, which he said were scalable to suit the needs of SMEs, small offices, large corporate bodies and even multinationals.
