Many people underestimate the value of e-commerce in Africa and the growing demand for reliable hardware to power economic growth. When solid hardware is combined with dependable software and fast Internet, it can improve internal communication, speed up interactions with partners, and enhance the customer experience.
The need is also high for small businesses that need more hardware gear to store data, manage a large customer database, run infrastructure, or run heavy software. Many of them have to rely on the infrastructure built by telecom companies, reinforcing the need to acquire and manage complex and compatible hardware and databases.
The most important advantage of e-commerce is that it allows African SMEs to expand their markets by providing a larger number of buyers and sellers full access to sale information. Furthermore, they have complete control over market entry and exit costs, ensuring that they make equal profits in the long run.
E-commerce has also made business transactions more innovative by providing consumers with more customized services. The internet has enabled various businesses to provide network support services and present package deals that meet the needs of different consumers. As a result, the advantages of e-commerce highlight the critical need for reliable hardware.
Of course, the hardware manufacturers want to sell to Africa's expanding market, but for the time being, they are content with selling their products through their middlemen in Dubai and the Middle East. The next major step will be to ship directly to the continent and assemble them where they will be consumed. Another challenge for small businesses in Africa is the increased global demand for computer hardware as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, as more people purchase equipment to work and learn from home.
The good news is that this new generation of pandemic computers is addressing the new ways we work with enhanced tools for video conferencing, cellular chips for accessing the Internet more efficiently, and AI to speed up processing speeds. Long-term solutions may lie in home-grown computer hardware manufacturers in Africa, along with partnerships that prioritize what the African users want from their PC, laptop, phone, tablet, printer, and everything else related to running their business.
