Irish Minister opens Anam HQ in Kenya
Nairobi, Kenya and Dublin, Ireland, 15 November, 2019 – On the back of significant contract wins in Africa over the past 12 months, Anam Technologies Limited (www.anam.com) has opened its Anam Africa Headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya. Working through successful global partnerships with MTN, Orange & Sinch Anam has already secured 22 networks across 19 countries in Africa including Eqypt, Cameroon, Nigeria, Morocco and DRC. Building out on the company’s current operational presence in Egypt & Nigeria, the new Kenyan office focusses on Sales & Managed Services to support partners and the growing customer base across the continent as well as delivering growth in direct business.
Targeted at Mobile Operators, Anam supplies Messaging solutions focused on A2P revenue growth, security & groupwide efficiencies. Anam wraps a range of specialist services around firewalls, hubs, reporting & visualization technologies to drive revenue, deliver efficiencies and eliminate fraud for Mobile Operators. Anam is a global leader in the field largely due to the company’s unique combination of Independence, Expertise, Technology & its proven track record in delivering results for clients.
Commenting on the opening of the new Africa base, Anam’s Group Chairman Darragh Kelly said “the potential for Anam across the continent is tremendous and the new African HQ demonstrates our commitment to servicing secured contracts and facilitating future growth. SPAM and unbilled A2P revenue is a mjaor problem, but equally, a huge opportunity for Mobile Network Operators to reap. From experience, Anam estimates that Mobile Network Operators are missing out on income of up to US$1 per subscriber per year in unbilled revenue. Consider an Operator who counts its customers in the tens of millions and the revenue quickly adds up”.
The Anam Africa office will be headed up by Steve Bannon, who joined the Anam Group 2 years ago. Steve has substantial C level experience within the Mobile Operator sector and joined Anam from Smile in Uganda where he was based for 4 years. Steve spend many years with the Digicel group across Asia Pacific and the Caribbean where he specialised in establishing and growing Digicel’s business in new markets. Steve is joined in Anam Africa by local man Stephen Ohito, who has a very strong background in the international and roaming business from several different stakeholder perspectives including more than 20 years working on the Mobile Operator side.
