We helped Zenith Bank Plc to bring world-class, reliable connectivity to their customers and between branches.
In a competitive market like Nigeria, banks have to be able to offer their customers the latest products and services. By investing strongly in its people, processes, and systems, Zenith Bank has become one of the largest and most profitable banks in Nigeria. It is also one of five Nigerian banks to be rated by The Banker Magazine among the top 500 in the world in terms of brand value. Zenith Bank’s objective was to continue to improve this rating in line with its vision of building a top, reputable, international financial services network, recognized for innovation and performance.
However, they faced serious network connectivity issues between their head offices and their remote networks. With our Pan-African footprint and strong Nigerian presence, our solution was to implement our AfricaConnect highspeed broadband service, which provides premium VSAT connectivity in over 60 sites including Ghana and Sierra Leone. This has significantly reduced downtime, network link unavailability, and failure.
Zenith Bank customers now have access to real-time online banking and Zenith Bank’s customer base has increased tremendously, while our services have provided a reliable and cost-effective solution which has reduced their expenditure on network and communications.
