“SMEs hold the economic framework of every country as they represent over 90% of businesses and more than 50% of the global employment rate. With small businesses at the core of our economy, TD Africa is proud to be the channel through which SMEs have access to these business transformational products. We are also glad that Huawei products play a major role in helping these businesses grow,’’ disclosed Coordinating Managing Director, TD Africa, Mrs. Chioma Chimere.
She added: “Today, our partner Huawei, who are at the forefront of innovative technological products and services, have brought this to our doorstep. The essence is to drive empowerment the way it should be. Not only do they want to contribute to the success of big companies, but they are also supporting the bulk of those who need to be empowered – SMEs. You don’t have to be a big name in the business sector before you embrace technology. Every SME should embrace the products unveiled as it will help your business grow significantly in the remaining three quarters of this year.’’
Also speaking at the event, Gary Lee, Channel Director, Huawei cited the company’s consistency in churning out cutting-edge products, despite the challenging and constantly shifting business climate, even as he emphasized that Huawei’s enterprise business is committed to bringing ICT to each sector.
“Huawei, in partnership with our distributor TD has put this event together to see how we can create more value for our partners with our new SME products. Today, with our dedication and drive stimulated by our core value of customer centricity, we have provided solutions that will help our partners and SMEs be better positioned as they ride on these products. We won’t just launch these products. We are going to provide quality support systems for our partners and their customers to have seamless experiences as they enjoy these products,” he stated.
Further exciting channel partners and resellers at the event were the Huawei Incentives Policy – a sales performance scheme through which salespersons of client-facing tier partners of Huawei enjoy handsome commissions for every deal they close.
The event also provided useful networking opportunities for partners and other attendees, some of whom went home with Huawei Notepad tablets as giveaways.
