“Zoho seeks to make this adoption both simple and affordable by providing its world-class software solutions at a fair price, protected from exchange rate fluctuations. Customers are also guaranteed privacy and security of their data,” he adds.

Zoho conducts free seminars and training sessions aimed specifically at the African market, educating users about how to adopt cloud technology to grow their businesses. After the success of its first-ever African Zoholics (Zoho’s user conference) event in Johannesburg in September 2019, the company hosted another Zoholics in Cairo, Egypt, in February this year.

Zoho has plans for long-term growth and expansion in Africa, having seen 35% growth in the region in 2019-2020.

It is also expanding its partner footprint in order to support more local businesses. Zoho’s partners have helped increase Zoho’s reach, contributing to over 55% of Zoho’s overall revenue for the region, Bourne says.

In addition to Nigeria, localised pricing has also been announced for Kenya, South Africa and Egypt, with further opportunities in the pipeline as Zoho plans to scale up its workforce on the continent over the next two years. Zoho currently has employees in South Africa and Nigeria.
