ICT solutions provider, iWayAfrica Uganda, has announced a change in ownership resulting in a name change to Echotel Proprietary Uganda Limited, and now forms part of the Echo Group, an ICT services business.
“This is an amazing new chapter to our story. In November, we celebrated 25 years of operating in Uganda. Our history started with Wilken Afsat in 1994, then Afsat, later evolving to iWayAfrica, absorbing AfricaOnline along the way,” says Godfrey Sserwamukoko, Managing Director of iWayAfrica Uganda who remains with the operation. He adds, “Joining forces with the Echo Group increases our ability to reach more people, improve our service delivery, offer aggressive Bandwidth speed packages, increase coverage to previously unprofitable areas and maintain our high standards of customer satisfaction that the market has come to expect of us”.
Having joined the company in 2001, Sserwamukoko has extensive communications experience and knowledge of Ugandan Market dynamics across the ICT spectrum.
“We are undertaking a seamless transition to Echo so the process of integrating our businesses will not affect on-going service provision.
Sserwamukoko continued, “With Echo’s backing and pan-African reach, we have the opportunity to expand our operation even further locally. We are working to bring the Ugandan market even more service offerings and look forward to unveiling our new brand and portfolio in 2020”.
Jacques Rautenbach, Chief Executive Officer of Echo International, added, “The expanded geographic footprint means that our clients operating on the continent have the reassurance of our ability to execute and support their businesses on the ground across Africa. Additionally, we can provide commercial agreements that consider local currencies along with centralised planning, governance and service management. We can also leverage Echo’s product investments, group skills and consultative approach to design, which means clients in each country will have a much wider portfolio of services to choose from.”
