MTN has extended its cloud service offerings to Ivory Coast, assisting growth in small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
MTN Cloud supplies business automation tools for companies in professional services, including microfinance and health.
The Ivory Coast launch follows MTN’s success in Ghana and Nigeria, with promises of further cloud provision to Uganda, Cameroon and South Africa.
Pieter Verkade, group chief commercial officer at MTN, said: “Our focus as MTN is to contribute to the development of enterprises and sustainable growth of economies in the countries where we operate.”
He continued: “MTN Cloud is integral to our strategy to achieve this, particularly as enterprises are key economic growth drivers in most of our markets.”
MTN sees itself as a single point of contact for customers, supplying access to digital services with a centralised approached.
According to Verkade convenience is a key factor, aiming to ease business administration in cutting out the obligation of dealing with multiple service providers.
The second phase of Ivory Coast-based MTN Cloud will target major corporates and multinationals.
Verkade is optimistic about the success of the new launch due to positive performance of the previous two.
