ANYKEY Technologies, a South African company, is in the country to explore Zambia’s technology market with the intention of setting up a foothold.
Company managing director Chantal Applewhite said Zambia had an exciting technology market with entrepreneurs ready to apply new technological skills in their businesses.
Ms Applewhite said Anykey was targeting both the general business and banks which needed to apply technology in their daily business.
“We are exploring Zambia, it’s an exciting market; we love the fact that the Zambian people are well educated and believe in enterprises that embrace technology, which is coming,” she said.
She said Anykey was confident that it would get a positive response from businesses here as shown at the first executive meeting which took place on Tuesday in Lusaka.
“We are targeting banks in Zambia because we feel it is a sector which needs to embrace technology for their day to day transactions and business.
“We will see how the response will be; general business will also be approached and share information on the importance of technology,” she said.
Ms Applewhite said her company was keen to help Zambia promote her technological skills.
“We want to help out in Zambia and promote technology skills. We have a presence in Mozambique and we have been there for three years now.
“We have top skills to provide infrastructure environment and partnering with people like KPMG to provide technological support to business in Zambia,” she said.
The company provided remote monitoring, a service that helps businesses minimise the risk of system failure that may occur due to problems such as file systems filling up, paging space running low, and memory utilisation.
It is also able to provide automated monitoring, which enables Anykey to assess the business system, and generate a report which would highlight any potential problems before they arise.
“Anykey can evaluate current business backup strategy and recommend any possible areas of improvement.
“Should there be any deficiencies in the backup strategy, Anykey can design and customise backup procedures which will achieve the specific requirements and needs of the customer,” she said
