Connecting your Business to the Internet

Jumia Phones and Tablet Deals

The internet is an important component of any modern business. Despite this fact many businesses in Nigeria and most of the developing world are lagging behind in the deployment of internet technologies in business.

The major factor for the low adoption of these technologies is ignorance. Businesses are yet to appreciate the value that internet technologies add to their businesses. Businesses in Nigeria are yet to be convinced on the merit for the extra cost on internet technologies.

The low adoption of internet technologies by businesses in the country is also attributed to the non existence of internet infrastructure in most parts and even where they do exist to the huge investment required to adopt the technology.
