CWG Plc, has inked a partnership deal with OLX, Nigeria’s number one online classifieds, to offer its SMERP Solution to Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in Nigeria for FREE.
CWG, the largest Information Technology Integration Company in Nigeria built the SMERP Solution to enable Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) manage their business operations efficiently.
Speaking of the partnership, Mr. Chidiebere Asiegbu, the Product Manager, SMERP at CWG said the aim of the partnership is to leverage OLX’s platform to reach and deploy the SMERP Solution to the over 100,000 unique merchants, who currently use the OLX platform, whilst still being available to new signups.
Enterprise resource planning (ERP) is a process by which companies manage and integrate important parts of its business. An ERP management information system like CWG’s SMERP Solution, integrates areas such as planning, purchasing, inventory, sales, marketing, finance, distribution and human resources.
Asiegbu noted that it’s expected that at least 20 per cent or more of the merchants on the OLX platform would need a business management tool such as the SMERP Solution to support their business “We are happy with this partnership because it will afford us the opportunity to reach and deploy the SMERP Solution that enables growth to the Nigerian economy; seeing it is estimated that the SMEs segment accounts for over 25 percent of employment in the country at present,” he said.
Also commenting on the partnership, Mayokun Fadeyibi, Senior Manager, Business Development at OLX stated that we are excited to be working together with CWG to offer OLX users exclusive access to a value added system of integrated applications to manage and automate different areas of their business. The ERP solution would help users organise and grow their business while putting valuable structures in place. “We encourage our users to take advantage of this exclusive opportunity where the service is free for one year for all OLX users.
Fadeyibi also added that, OLX users can take advantage of this offer by signing up by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
As part of the partnership, CWG would train and onboard the merchants on the use of the platform as well as host and support the platform for use, while OLX’s role will be to advise and encourage the merchant to use the platform, through its communication channels and also sensitize the merchant on the functionalities, usage and benefits of the platform. Together CWG & OLX say to SMEs in Nigeria, for Business efficiencies, Just SMERP IT!
