TomTom Africa and the National Small Business Chamber (NSBC) have partnered to ensure that about 75 000 members will have location services, this includes an Address Validation Tool and “Put Your Business On The Map”.
Through this initiative Small businesses, which contribute largely to the economic growth of South Africa, will have a greater visibility.
“This will assist customers in finding these businesses via a business locator on the TomTom App or any of the TomTom portable navigation devices (PND’s)”, commented TomTom Africa General Manager, Etienne Louw.
Mike Anderson, NSBC Founder and CEO added: “TomTom plays a pivotal role in enhancing the visibility of small businesses throughout South Africa. Through their powerful business geo-locator, small businesses can now help their customers and potential customers find them quickly and easily. The NSBC in partnership with TomTom has a vision to ‘put every small business on the map”.
Founded by NSBC and Nedbank, the first Friday in Spring every year has been declared ‘Small Business Friday’ which encourages all South African’s to interact with and support small business on a daily basis and particularly every Friday.
With support from the community, small business will grow and sustain people through job creation. At the same time harvesting the entrepreneurial spirit and reducing unemployment.
The My Business Expo at Gallagher Convention Centre will be hosting small businesses through pertinent seminars such as the Small Business Start-up Zone and various start-up Expo Exhibitors. Join us at the My Business Expo on 12th March 2015 at Gallagher Estate where TomTom will literally be putting small businesses on the map!
