The ability of Africa’s small, medium and large enterprises to sustain seamless remote work in the pandemic era lies in greater investments in cloud services, officials said on Thursday.

David Behr, CEO of Cloud and Cybersecurity at Liquid Intelligent Technologies, a Pan-African technology firm noted that enterprises which adopt solutions that promote hybrid work will benefit from enhanced productivity besides cutting down on operating costs.

“Businesses need a solution that will create a workplace facilitated by seamless communication, collaboration and flexibility,” Behr said during the virtual launch of Liquid Intelligent Technologies’ OneVoice for Cloud PBX solution in Nairobi.

He said the digital solution that will be pioneered in six African markets will help businesses navigate disruptions created by the pandemic by ensuring employees, clients and other stakeholders are connected remotely.

According to Behr, OneVoice for Cloud PBX solution will enable African enterprises to build a more unified, integrated, converged and easily manageable communications ecosystem at a reasonable cost.

He stressed that start-ups in the continent that digitize their core operations including human resource management will gain from efficiency, improved linkage with clients and long-term profitability.

Richard Were, head of Shared Services at Liquid Intelligent Technologies said that as remote work becomes the new normal, businesses have no option but to invest in cloud solutions that facilitate seamless interactions while protecting critical data.

Were noted that the pandemic accelerated digital transformation among African corporate entities, adding that investing in tools that integrate voice and data is key to realize efficiency in a hybrid work environment.

Were said that adoption of cloud-based solutions will shield businesses from the high cost of installing broadband infrastructure, improve their brand visibility and ability to attract talented workforce.

Mike Siachitema, head of Products and Solutions at Liquid Intelligent Technologies said that transferring the traditional workplace into the cloud will ensure that African businesses remain agile and resilient in the face of COVID-19 disruptions. Enditem
