ISON Technologies, an Information Technology Enabled Service (ITES) company, on Friday said technology transfer was essential for the economic growth of a country.

The Chief Operating Officer of the company, Mr Rahul Srivasatav, expressed the view at a media parley in Lagos.

He said that his firm was ready to scale up its Public Private Partnership to boost technology skills transfer and economic growth.

The COO said that technology inclusion was quite promising in Nigeria, hence, the need to collaborate to ensure effective technology transfer.

“At iSON Technologies, we are passionate about deploying technology services to our customers.

“Over the years, we have become the go-to technology provider for different verticals spanning technology, banking, government, healthcare, travel and hospitality.

“It helps that we have a strong delivery centre and ready access to unique technological skills.

“But also, our constant search for improved service practices that can be utilised to better reach throughout our expanding customer base is also a unique strength.

“We are extremely excited about the future of technology, especially in a country like Nigeria, where technology inclusion is quite promising, and of course, we are firmly set to lead the revolution in this market.

“Of course, what could expand skill base even more is public-private partnership in order to build and transfer specific skill base,” Srivastava said.

The Chief Growth Officer, iSON Technologies, Mr Akshay Grover, said the company had been in the mainstream of driving technology inclusion, with a number of key service offerings to some of the biggest organisations around the world.

Grover said with presence in 25 countries, iSON’s clients include MTN, Airtel, Etisalat, Standard Chartered Bank, AIICO, Multichoice, GTBank, among others.

He said that part of iSON’s core strategy for Nigeria and Africa was to invest in the development of local systems and the up skilling, growth and empowerment of local talent.

According to him, iSON has always stood by its policy of bringing jobs to people, rather than the other way round.

“’We remain focused in doing our part to develop the economy and we will continue to invest in the development of local manpower,” he said.

Grover said that throughout the countries in which the company operated, it focused on employee training and capability development.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that iSON Group, with headquarters in Lagos, Nigeria, is an IT and ITES organisation in Africa, with presence in 25 countries and over 10,000 employees.

iSON Group operates through its three main subsidiaries namely, iSON BPO, iSON Technologies and iSON Innovation and Investments
