Lleida.net opens a new office in South Africa
- South Africa, Swaziland, Lesotho, Botswana, Namibia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya and Ghana, eight countries to address Lleida.net services.
- "We have always planned to initially establish ourselves in South Africa, once fundamentals such as inter alia, the legal issues, are fully understood by our intended clients and they themselves are confident with such conditions, namely the Telecommunications Electronic Act 2002", comments Sirex Consortium Executive Chairman, Mr. Giacomo Carlo Avondo Lleida.net partner in South Africa.
Lleida, 15 April 2014. Lleida.net opens new office in Cape Town (South Africa) and will implement the Lleida.net services and products in seven other African countries, Swaziland, Lesotho, Botswana, Namibia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya and Ghana.
Our first steps in South Africa are taken along with a local partner who knows the market and the needs and applicability of our services. However, the Lleida.net services, being electronic communications cross borders, provides more secure communication for people and for businesses.
Mr. Giacomo Carlo Avondo, our partner and CEO of Sirex Consortium comments, "our expectations thus far are as anticipated, meaning that there is great interest in the Lleida.net Offerings. However, as with any such implementation there are questions and technical conditions to understand before implementing the Lleida.net products and services. With this in mind we have always planned to initially establish ourselves in South Africa, once fundamentals such as inter alia, the legal issues, are fully understood by our intended clients and they themselves are confident with such conditions, namely the Telecommunications Electronic Act 2002. We shall follow a similar strategy in the other countries".
The Telecommunications Act 2002, Article 25 amongst others, clearly indicates that South Africa and most of the countries of the commonwealth are already signatories to the Electronic Communications Act. The Democratic Republic of Congo, being influenced by France, is therefore subject to European Community signatories and participation, continues Mr. Avondo.
The priority sectors to which the services of Lleida.net will be aimed at are large organizations such as insurance companies, banks, travel agents; companies usually handle legal correspondence, booking companies, public administrations.
Mobile telephony and the Internet in Africa are living its boom. Africa has a cellular usage of 650 million users more than either the EU or USA.
The opening of Africa is an important step in the internationalization of Lleida.net Expanding the number of offices to 13, Lleida, Madrid, London, Miami, San Francisco, Paris, New Delhi, Santiago de Chile, Bogotá, São Paulo, Tokyo, Santo Domingo and Cape Town.
