BCSG today announced that it has been selected by MTN Group, the number one telecom brand in Africa, to refresh its cloud services proposition for businesses. MTN Cloud Services will provide the operator’s business customers with an enhanced range of market leading SaaS and IaaS solutions like Microsoft Office 365 and Cisco Webex. These services help MTN customers to run their businesses more efficiently and effectively, and allow MTN to strengthen its position as an ICT provider to grow its enterprise sector revenues.

Built on BCSG’s Cloud Management Platform, the proposition is set to launch across 5 MTN Operations imminently, including Rwanda, Swaziland, Uganda, Ghana and Cameroon, with further countries to follow.

Debbie Minnaar, Acting Executive: MTN Group Enterprise Business Unit said “The partnership with BCSG allows MTN to take a significant step forward with its cloud service proposition for businesses. It delivers a quality marketplace experience for our SME customers to purchase the services they need and administer their use within their businesses. The ability to roll out the platform across our various operating companies means we are able to deliver services that effectively and efficiently support all our business customers in a consistent manner.”

BCSG, the award-winning provider of cloud service solutions, developed the MTN Business Cloud Services platform in partnership with MTN Group. BCSG was selected after MTN conducted a rigorous full market tender and evaluation process with a number of global cloud service providers.

"We are delighted to be working with MTN to provide their business customers across the African continent with applications that help them address their challenges, whilst enhancing their potential for success," said Tom Platt, Commercial Director at BCSG. "Through the MTN Cloud Services marketplace, businesses of all sizes can access market leading applications that are easily delivered, and help their business perform."

All the applications and services are available in one place and will be offered across a variety of MTN channels with one log-in to access all the services, managed through a user-friendly dashboard, wherever the business has an internet connection, using any device.
