TD to empower more ICT resellers in Nigeria
WORRIED by the rising costs of doing business and its attendant effects on start-ups in the country, Technology Distributions (TD) has unveiled plans to boost the operational capacity of Small and Medium ICT enterprises (SMEs) through a partnership programme which will provide access to a suite of business support initiatives for the beneficiaries including financial management guide, mentoring sessions, business intelligence and credit facilities, among others.
According to a statement, the initiative is in line with TD’s desire to help cushion the harsh effects of the contemporary business environment on SMEs and provide a platform for this vital sector to thrive as a means of contributing to the growth of the Nigerian economy.
The partnership with Technology Distributions, number one ICT distributors in Sub-Saharan Africa, will see the beneficiaries join TD’s wide network of resellers while allowing them benefit from the organization’s wide presence and proven expertise in the areas of fiscal management, corporate image building and soft loan financing. In addition, the successful beneficiaries will receive special trainings and business guidance on multi ICT products being represented by TD as largest distributors on the African continent.
TD enjoys prime status as authorized distributors for IBM, HP, Dell, Microsoft, Cisco, Lenovo, D-Link as well as smart mobile brands from Infinix, Techno and Injoo, in addition to a wide range of smartphones, tablets and other ICT devices. Furthermore, a quarterly review system will be deployed to gauge progress made by the new resellers and assess likely areas of improvement.
“These are indeed tough times and the harsh operating environment is likely to impact more on small scale businesses. Access to funding is even more difficult now as banks are more skeptical about granting loans. This is why we have decided to help provide a way out for these businesses,” said Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at Technology Distributions, Mrs. Chioma Ekeh.
“The role of small and medium scale businesses in the growth of any economy cannot be over-emphasized. This sector holds the key to generating wealth for the greater number of Nigerians and it is in line with these realities that we have decided to partner with them and empower them to take advantage of the limitless opportunities in the ICT business space and position their businesses for the future,” she enthused.
With branches in major Nigerian cities coupled with expansion into other key African capitals, Technology Distributions has forged a reputation for being the prime ICT distributor in the West African sub-region. Backed by its status as the pioneer manufacturer-accredited local distributor for the sub-region, TD has successfully represented a number of globally renowned brands which has helped maintain its position as the market leader.
