E-Connect Global Africa, an Information Technology Solutions provider, has organised an orientation for about 400 agents of Areashooppers.co, an e-commerce trading platform in Accra.
The orientation dubbed: “The New 21st Century African Business Workshop,” was meant to train the agents to make them abreast with operations.
Areashoppers is an e-commerce trading platform that provides sellers and suppliers an avenue to display and conveniently sell their products to buyers everywhere.
Nana Akosua Sarpong Kumakuma, the Chief Executive Officer of Areashopper told the Ghana News Agency that with the AreaBoss agents in communities, they have solved a problem that has hitherto confronted the African for centuries by providing Agriculture solution via technology.
She said they have bridged the divide between the farming communities and the urban consumers, thus enhancing the lives of their communities.
“Agro-based industry can now thrive,” she added.
She said with this process in place, it gives the entrepreneurs the confidence and business investors to establish agro-based factors and be able to have raw materials.
She said the platform is efficiently backed by more than 50,000 plus delivery direct-marketing agents, AreaBoss, whose presence is in every community, district that one could not ignore.
Reverend Nana Yaa Owusu Prempeh said the system is to address post-harvest losses to empower farmers.
She said citizens have not taken advantage of the technological opportunities to develop themselves.
