In a bid to serve the West African telecoms market, a mobile and IoT solutions provider Workz Group has announced the opening of its office in Senegal
This development was aimed at strengthening the Workz’ presence in Africa.
The Senegal office is the company’s second location on the continent after its Johannesburg opening last June.
The company, recognized by the Nilson Report, is the world’s largest scratch card manufacturer and a top ten SIM card producer. It is also the only manufacturer in the Middle East and Africa to be certified by the GSMA to produce the next-gen technology, embedded SIM.
The company currently serves 100 clients in over 60 countries, including more than 25 African network operators.
In addition, Workz group has revealed plans to offer certified SIM cards, embedded SIM chips, and scratch cards from its Dubai production facilities to the West African market; however, this is predicted to contribute over $70 billion to its GDP by 2023.
The Managing Director of the Middle East & Africa, Workz Group Tor Malmros, noted that
“Talking to our clients and other network operators in the region, we see a tremendous opportunity in West Africa. As a global provider and a regional manufacturer, we are confident we can offer something not currently available in the market which is a highly cost-efficient, high-quality product with very short delivery times”.
“With the opening of our new Dakar office, we hope to replicate the success we’ve had in other parts of Africa and be able to work even closer with West African network operators to overcome their current challenges and support their successful evolution in a very dynamic market”.
Workz will be attending West AfricaCom in Dakar this July to showcase their embedded SIM and IoT solutions along with 5G, traditional SIM and scratch card services.
