Bytes companies exhibit at Telecom Namibia ICT Summit
Several Bytes Technology Group companies participated in the annual Telecom Namibia ICT Summit, on 12 to 14 September, at the Safari Hotel and Conference Centre, in Windhoek.
Bytes Document Solutions, authorised Xerox distributor to 26 sub-Saharan countries, Bytes Technology Group Namibia, and Bytes Connect were among the exhibitors.
Bytes was a platinum sponsor at the event, which was opened by the honourable Jo"el Kaapanda, Minister of Information and Communication Technology.
Edward Bothma, divisional manager of SilverlineLAB, presented: “The connected office: Africa and beyond”. He spoke of a new way to reach customers and prospects through “the mass market of one”, and how to do this through cloud-based computing, rather than through owning the technology. This enables cross-media, which in turn powers transpromo.
Keith Knott, divisional director, Production and Software Solutions at Bytes Document Solutions, presented: “The connected office - Africa and beyond - fast-changing business world”.
The Bytes stand was a popular one, where delegates were briefed on:
* Imaging and content management
* Managed print services
* Corporate social networking and collaboration
* Hosted services and software as a service
* Cross-media marketing and personalisation
* Intelligent office automation
* Voice and data connectivity (Alcatel-Lucent)
The overall theme of the conference was: “We have arrived - the globe is linked”, which was inspired by the landing of the West Africa Cable System in February.
Bytes Technology Group Namibia demonstrated its Parrot Interactive Whiteboard solution, which has seen widespread adoption in boardrooms across Namibia.
The interactive whiteboard differentiates itself from the competition in a number of ways, not least of which is its diminutive size - it easily fits into a laptop bag alongside a laptop, with its dimensions of half an A4 page by 1cm. It is also flexible - it can project onto any surface and requires no fixtures.
The Telecom Namibia ICT Summit has proved so popular that 2011 is the first time it has been run over three days.
