company has invested in a number of strategic
products and services, which themselves have the
potential of becoming ongoing concerns in themselves,
some of which are listed below. The company would
like to inform investors about these outputs,
as they may be more attractive, or complimentary
to an investors portfolio. As such investors who
may not necessarily be interested in nettech itself
have the opportunity to participate in one of
these interest instead.
Like most other countries the "Bricks and
Mortar" Estates Agency sector is characterised
by fragmentation. There are no sector behemoths,
and few provide a complete set of services across
horizontal divisions. Fortunately, this creates
an opportunity for harmonisation and aggregation
in a context that adds value to Estates Agency.
This site/service is deployed to fill that niche.
Initial soundings from established Estate Agents
and Law firms involved in real estate, suggest
that the service is welcome and also much anticipated.
There is a Caveat though, the Internet medium
is still underdeveloped, infrastructure problems
are a most potent obstacle to eBusiness in the
Nigerian economy, how does a service such as this
survive, much less thrive. Request

in Nigeria as it exists in 2001/2002 "The
Nigerian Business Habitat : State of the Ark".

This is a product designed for the retail sector
of the Music industry. The eMusicDirectoryTM provides
an interface from which customers can interact
with products, before committing themselves to
a purchase. One of the major obstacles to buying
Music and Videos in shops is the uncertainty of
content. This is particularly the case with impulse
buying. By giving customers a better feel for
the content of the item, using high quality sound
and video segments to provide a genuine sample,
customers gain quick and valuable information
needed to complete a firm purchase.
This works against the high return rate that some
outlets face. Secondly, for dedicated Music lovers,
and Collectors, a vital but missing service, is
a Customer-Managed search. This would allow for
a quicker, more exhaustive search of archives
and current stock to indulge the taste of the
committed. The eMusicDirectoryTM product, going
by calculations, has the potential to pay back
on its total cost within the first year of deployment.
In Europe, and in many other economies the world
over, the telephone has become an important tool
of the home and the business. Private and public
communication is most often conducted using this
technology, however, it is only recently that
online Telephone Directories have become widespread.
In Sub-Saharan Africa, this is yet the case. Opportunity
exists for creation of eDirectories that not only
provide access to a compendium of phone numbers,
but also a selection of value added services for
businesses and individuals.
Internet Technologies has completed an innovative
design for eDirectories that exceeds those currently
deployed anywhere on the Internet. The company
has submitted proposals to a number of Telecoms
companies and we are hopeful that the model can
be applied not only in Africa, but also on other
continents, to bring a truly outstanding compendium
of synergistic services into one context, and
interface. &This service would be most attractive
to Media houses, Telecoms and Investors with like
portfolio, this is because of the bias towards
exposure/visibility and audience over ROI.
