Telkom Business leverages SaaS to boost SMMEs

Telkom Business, has enabled access to web-based tools for SMMEs while ensuring that their data is protected through the company’s latest Software as a Service (SaaS) offerings, Out-of-the-Box Software (Zoho) and Out-of-the-Box Secure (BlackFog).

According to a statement, through Telkom Business’ Out-of-the-Box Software (Zoho) which is available on its e-commerce platform, customers can access an office tools suite, Internet of things management platform, and a suite of IT management software.

In order to enable businesses to increase productivity, the Out-of-the-Box Software has integrated applications focusing on web and mobile apps for sales, marketing, accounting and more.

Telkom says migrating a business to digital means that SMMEs also require the right tools to protect stakeholder data. The Out-of-the-Box Secure (BlackFog) cybersecurity solution prevents data loss and malware activity to ensure that SMMEs can safely conduct their business online.

The Out-of-the-Box Secure (BlackFog) offering, which is coming soon to the Telkom Business e-commerce platform will protect businesses from potential cyber-attacks by blocking online advertising and unauthorised data exfiltration, data profiling and data tracking.

Telkom Business Chief Executive Officer, Lunga Siyo said, “We will go out of our way to bring to SMMEs those solutions that help them on their journey in a way that is convenient, cost effective and speaks to the modern trends of technological developments.”

In empowering SMMEs, Telkom Business says it seeks to help businesses get connected, get customers, and get productive by going above and beyond providing small and medium businesses with communication capabilities through mobile and fixed-line solutions.

“To succeed in a time of digital migration, SMMEs need to be able to do business anytime and anywhere, further stated Siyo.

In South Africa, SaaS is key to digital transformation says Telkom Business. The company believes this market segment is worth R10.4 billion and is expected to change the way we do business.

Telkom says to fast track their digital journey, small businesses require web-based applications that will allow them to not only trade their goods and services and to have visibility, but to also get productive.
