Business Micros’ customer list already extends across Europe and into both the US and most notably Australia. Now though, it has just received its first order from Nigeria in West Africa as it expands into even more exciting new markets.
Go Windows and Doors, a start up fabricator in Lagos, has ordered Business Micros’ Evolution software to process fabrication of windows and doors in the Turkish manufactured Veratec and Uniplast PVC-U systems.
With Nigeria boasting one of the strongest economies in Africa with annual growth in recent years of around 7%, there is lots of potential for PVC-U windows and doors in a fast growing construction sector.
Because it offers remote software installation, Business Micros can offer Go Windows and Doors a cost effective route to acquiring the market leading Evolution software, which the team in Nigeria believe will give them a competitive advantage against other start up fabricators.
Working in English, which is the official language of Nigeria, Evolution will help Go Windows and Doors with things like works order sheets, bar optimisation, quotations, cost breakdowns and manufacturing times and will help them to create an efficient, tightly managed set up from the outset.
Although the Nigerian company originally found Business Micros online, they are visiting them on their stand at next month’s FIT show to seal the deal.
Graeme Bailey, Managing Director at Business Micros, said: “Our overseas business just keeps on growing. It’s a great testament to our reputation and to the fact that we can offer such a reliable and straightforward remote installation process. We’re very much looking forward to meeting Olubi Adejobi from Go Windows and Doors at the FIT Show and learning a bit more from him about the Nigerian market.”
