Lagos computer village gets new e-commerce service

23 April 2014, 08:44

Abuja - A local software development and mobile strategy company has launched an e-commerce platform for businesses in the popular Computer Village at Ikeja in Lagos.

The platform is the brainchild eKnowvate Solutions Limited.

The Managing Director, eKnowvate Solutions Limited, Muyiwa Alawode, said the platform would provide opportunity for over 6 000 shops and an estimated 18 000 businesses at the popular computer and allied accessories market to showcase their products to a global audience for improved customer engagement and patronage.

“The launch of the e-commerce platform by eKnowvate Solutions Ltd in conjunction with the executives of the Market Association – CAPDAN has become expedient in order to preserve the market share of businesses in Computer Village in the sales of IT equipment and accessories in view of recent competition from a number of e-commerce platforms.

MyComputerVillage.com offers a unique platform that promotes the company names and brands of the individual businesses that subscribe on the platform as opposed to other e-commerce platforms that serve as mere aggregators of products,” he said.

He added, “Furthermore, the e-commerce provider, eKnowvate Solutions Ltd, does not share in the sales proceeds of shop owners for transactions that take place on the platform as the case in other e-commerce platforms. A virtual shopping mall where businesses in the market can own shops, subscribers to MyComputerVillage.com platform offers its users all the tools needed to enable their business go live on the internet without needing to worry about technical setup skills, hosting and maintenance upgrades. All that a subscriber has to do is sign up for the service and start trading.”

eKnowvate focused on delivering adaptive and innovative information technology solutions that transform for value, the business objectives of its customers across various verticals of the economy.

Alawode added that MyComputerVillage.com is an affordable, convenient, effective and efficient online shopping mall, saying that with a monthly or annual rental fee, entrepreneurs and businesses that currently have shops in Computer Village could effectively showcase their products and company brand to prospective buyers via an online shop.

He said with N1 000 per month, traders at the Computer Village could subscribe to have their products showcased on MyComputerVillage.com with ease, adding that there were no hidden charges attached.
