Why WaveTek is launching in Nigeria

By Kokumo Goodie, Lagos, Nigeria

New ICT services provider WaveTek Nigeria Limited says it has launched in Nigeria to fill a yawning gap in the information communication technology (ICT) sector in the country.

The company says the Nigerian market is still full of limitless opportunities.

WaveTek, launched this month, will offer a range of ICT solutions for the public and private sector.

Ken Spann, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, said: “WaveTek was established out of the need to fill a gap in the market. I am confident there is room in the marketplace for WaveTek to operate, owing to our differentiators which include international scale, product knowledge, pricing strategy, intelligent insight, market research and a knack for success, among others. WaveTek has rich content to bring to education, government at all levels, and the business segments of Nigeria.”

Spann has spent 11 years Microsoft Corporation at its headquarters in Redmond, WA, USA, with three out of those years spent as the developer. He said the new firm will be offering services in the areas of application integration and IT infrastructure to include cloud and hosting services, education, bandwidth and last mile connectivity.

Shedding more light on what the firm will offer its customers, Dapo Onawole, Chief Information Officer and Chief Software Architect, said: “With our carefully selected product/ service delivery structure, WaveTek is poised to provide high performance, secure and managed SQL database and business intelligence solutions; customer relationship management (CRM) software; Lync and unified communications solutions; sharepoint server and collaboration solutions. Others are virtualization solutions; hosting solutions; cloud services; Microsoft IT Academy, e-content and e-administration.”

For Nehita Fashe, AGM of Sales, the value proposition of the firm makes it stand it out from the pack. “WaveTek’s value proposition is to provide completely bundled solutions designed to our customer’s requirements. We seamlessly deliver content by creating hosted as well as resolving many of the last mile challenges by “bringing the last mile closer,” he said, adding that  over the coming months WaveTek would become a leader in providing world class solutions, whether in the Cloud like Office 365 or on high speed Virtual Fiber Networks.
