CWG Plc, has inked a partnership deal with OLX Nigeria, the country’s top online classifieds platform to offer OLX merchants free small business enterprise resource planning software (SMERP).
The solution, built by Computer Warehouse Group (CWG) aims to enable Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) manage their business operations efficiently. CWG is targeting to reach over 100,000 unique merchants who currently use the OLX platform.
Mr. Chidiebere Asiegbu, the Product Manager, SMERP at CWG, “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.”
The Enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution will help the SMEs manage and integrate important parts of their business 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.
CWG will 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.
OLX is also excited to be working together with CWG to offer its users exclusive access to a value added system of integrated applications to manage and automate different areas of their business. The firm says the ERP solution would help its merchants 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,” said Mayokun Fadeyibi, Senior Manager, Business Development at OLX.
