MTN launch cloud service for SMEs

21 August 2013, 16:46

Lagos - MTN Nigeria has launched a cloud service for small and medium scale enterprises (SMEs) in Nigeria.

The development, which officials say is in keeping with its vision of providing cutting edge digital services for its subscribers, makes MTN the first telecommunications operator to offer Cloud services to small businesses in the country.

Speaking at the launch of the service in Lagos, Babatunde Osho, MTN Chief Enterprise Solutions Officer, said SMEs in Nigeria would now be able to enjoy enterprise solutions without the usual attendant costs.

The services, he said, would enable small businesses to increase their productivity and profitability.

“No matter what entrepreneurs need, MTN Cloud Services can help take their business to new heights," he said.

Osho noted that technology had become a key differentiator and enabler for businesses and as such offerings like MTN Cloud Services could prove to be a critical success factor for SMEs due to their flexibility and pay-as- you-go cost structure.

The cloud service is a range of prepaid cloud-based services designed to offer a variety of services and enterprise software over a secure internet connection, without any of the associated IT infrastructure costs.

These services are available on the MTN Business Nigeria online portal, providing a one-stop shop for a range of services such as human resource management, customer relationship management, sales force automation, accounting and finance, virus and spyware protection, firewall protection, browser protection, and email protection among others.

Osho pledged that MTN Business would continue adding value to the lives and businesses of Nigerians through delivery of tailor-made and productivity-enhancing solutions to various segments of the market across the country.

SMEs contribute more than 40 percent to Nigeria's Gross Domestic Product.
