There is a need for the regulators and government to actively pursue SIM registration, which is absolutely necessary to ensure identity traceability and security for the nation, according to a press release.
The company will scale up its African operations on the eve of its second year of operations in Nigeria.
Over the last two years, Tech Mahindra has partnered with leading telecom operators in Nigeria, like MTN and Multilinks. The company has recently won the prestigious Bharti Airtel Africa deal for setting up Airtel’s BPO operations in 7 countries.
We are extremely excited to be a part of the growing market of Africa. We have already helped our customers in Africa reduce their operating costs and generate new revenue streams.
