Konga bags industry recognition
Konga, a composite e-commerce platform, has been named the most innovative company of the year.
The award was presented to the management of Konga at the 2021 Titans of Tech Hall of Fame Awards held at the weekend in Lagos.
Konga beats competition from other players such as Payporte, Jumia and Jiji.ng to win the highly coveted award.
Explaining how Konga emerged winner, the event organisers said the result of a report released by its intelligence unit, which showed that Konga was the clear favourite, even as it credited the company with a string of innovative strategies that have raised the bar in the e-commerce sector.
“The report by our intelligence unit indicates that Konga is today, a clear leader in the highly competitive Nigerian e-commerce market, showing that e-commerce can be profitable. The firm’s Omni channel structure in which it operates both online and offline is one of the advantages that has placed the company upfront and ahead of other players.
“Konga continues to demonstrate that the key to a sustainable business is to offer products and services that solve problems and to grow revenue, while effectively managing costs. No wonder it has experienced over 1000 per cent growth in the past three years. The firm has also expanded its reach with its logistics platform, Kxpress, established to resolve the perennial challenges of logistics in the industry and indeed the country.
“Konga will equally be conferred with the COVID-19 Pandemic Courage Award for its high-level emergency readiness and proactive actions during the thick of the pandemic that kept it in business, with both staff and customers interacting safely.’’
Speaking while receiving the award on behalf of Konga, Head of Human Resources, Charles Udeozor, affirmed that the award was fitting recognition for the landmark strides recorded by the brand, adding that Nigerians should expect more from Konga.
