Why Africa?

Africa an untapped well of potential for IT infrastructure and solutions. As globalization takes a firm hold of the continent, more and more opportunities are emerging for vendors to move into Africa and achieve a growing market share.
The Oil & Gas industry and many natural resources, such as diamonds, carbon and agriculture, generate business volume, pushing the economy and growth forward. This results in a growing demand for cellular operators, organized banking communities and other services to provide the needs of these significant incomes to the continent, with approximately 1 billion inhabitants.
Africa is one of the fastest growing mobile telecommunications market in the world. Today there are over 600 million GSM subscribers across the continent.

Africa's main industries are: 

  • Oil & gas

How We Work

Over the years, we have developed a unique business model with our main goal to provide the vendors with full representation in the African market. We have achieved this by hiring brand managers who are trusted only with products manufactured by the vendor they represent. Our brand managers refer to their brands as if they were the vendors' employees and their brand representation is based on the vendors' technical and marketing tools, training, brand codes and rules.
Our innovative work concept enables us to best represent our vendors and achieve win-win business opportunities. On the one hand, we have the best professional know-how from our vendors and on the other hand, we are familiar and trusted by our clients, maintaining an impeccable reputation both locally and globally. Although our business model is based on sales conducted by resellers only, our brand managers are involved in each and every step of the sales cycle, beginning with creating the market demand, through training our customers and resellers until "closing" is achieved.  
The market's special characteristics and our proven track record have generated a wealth of opportunity in which our clients truly trust our professional and personal opinions wherever new technologies are involved.

Pre-Sales Support is Key

Landing projects in this very lucrative market requires providing our resellers with full support in the pre-sale phase in order to create the right conditions for future closing. We therefore invest great resources in training our resellers and in mapping, developing, characterizing and defining our clients' needs in the various target markets. In addition, as part of our pre-sale support we execute broad site surveys and evaluation sessions.
With many years of experience in both the data storage and security arena, our certified pre-sales consultants and sales professionals are available to our partners at all times. We believe that this pre-sale support differentiates our service and provides our vendors with added-value.

Networking Keeps Us Ahead

In the last decade DataGroupIT has developed dozens of distributing channels and numerous professional and personal relationships across Africa. These well established channels enable us to represent our vendors with almost limitless access to a variety of new African markets and clients that are constantly developing, growing and seeking new and innovative IT solutions.
