In delivering on its commitment to meet the needs of small and medium enterprises in Nigeria, MainOne has introduced into the market a new service called SME-in-a-Box, a converged solution of high-speed internet, fixed-voice and cloud solution designed to offer its world class services to smaller businesses in affordable packages. SME-in-a-Box is a simple, plug and play service poised to drive business growth, productivity and profitability without compromising quality and value for money. It will help businesses deliver robust services to their clients because of the high quality experience and value the solution offers. This service is especially practical in today’s economic environment where businesses have to adapt to the new financial regime in order to remain viable.
Speaking during the product launch, the Product Manager, Value Added Services, Adeyemi Tanimomo, discussed the value of SME-in-a-Box. He said, “MainOne understands the challenges small businesses face especially in terms of costs and quality of service. You will find that the typical business is always changing service providers because of these two issues. This is why we created this solution, to enable businesses increase their operational efficiency and ultimately their bottom-line. SME-in-a-Box provides business owners a viable solution to meet their objectives of growth, improved efficiency and good service delivery.”
Tanimomo further explained that from MainOne’s perspective, SMEs are key drivers of the economy because of the vital role they play in alleviating poverty, providing job opportunities and building wealth. However, an SME is unlikely to be able to fully attain its potential without being powered by reliable internet connectivity. He said, “SME-in-a-Box is an expression of MainOne’s commitment to constantly innovate as we continue to provide the best connectivity and data network services in West Africa. We also want to provide SMEs access to the same quality of services enjoyed by big organizations to drive their growth and sustainability. The service is especially recommended for startups, professional services companies, architectural firms, law firms, schools, hotels, hospitals, e-commerce firms, retail malls and other businesses that require business support connectivity solutions from one, single provider.”
SME-in-a-Box is affordable and currently available in Ikeja and Apapa, with planned phased launches throughout Nigeria.
