Intellimedia Chairman Alex Chesosi has urged procurement officers to embrace the transformative power of connectivity, emphasizing its role in expanding market reach and attracting a broader customer base.
Speaking at the Second Procurement and Supply Chain Dialogue forum held at Sarova Whitesands Beach Resort, he highlighted the pivotal role technological advancements play in fostering inclusive socio-economic development within trade.
“Adopt private cellular network-based connectivity solutions, they are beacons of innovation poised to revolutionize business operations. There is need for agility, innovation and a shared vision among industry players to thrive in a connected world,” he said.
Drawing reference from Intellimedia Networks Africa’s journey, Chesosi cited the company’s success in enabling last-mile solutions as evidence of the possibilities when industry, government, and partnerships dare to envision and execute ambitious plans.
“This is not about re-inventing the wheel; it’s about leveraging the rapid adoption of mobile telephony in Africa and applying it to the broader realms of commerce, education, government services delivery, entertainment, healthcare, and, importantly, supply chain management,” Chesosi said.
He went on to say that technological connectivity would enable procurement officers to seize business opportunities not only within Kenya but across the entire African market. Chesosi retaliated emphasized the enduring spirit of progress, unity, and innovation that binds not only Kenya but the entire African continent.
He expressed confidence in Africa’s ability to compete on equal footing in the global economy, urging the continent to be pioneers in a movement that propels sustainable growth.
“As we convene under the auspices of the Kenya Institute of Supplies Management, we are reminded of the enduring spirit that binds not only Kenya but also the entire African continent – a spirit of relentless pursuit towards progress, unity, and innovation.
The chairman said that the dialogue on connectivity will unlock potential, bridge gaps, and contribute to the creation of a robustly interwoven Africa within itself and with the global economy. “We have the unique advantage to implement and activate a new paradigm of growth, to be the forerunners in a movement that will see Africa compete as equals in the global economy, “he said.
A month ago Intellimedia Networks Africa showcased it’s commitment to this vision of promoting Africa connectivity as they made an announcement of a USD 3 million partnership deal with Matic Enterprises, a Congolese conglomerate.
During the signing of agreement between Intellimedia and Matic Enterprises, Chesosi emphasized the critical role of collaboration between government and the private sector in overcoming connectivity challenges.
