Southern Africa Telecommunications Association (SATA) on Friday launched a digital sharing platform to address the challenges of knowledge sharing in the region.
SATA was founded in 1980 in line with the Southern African Development Community (SADC) Treaty. It regroups companies from the information and communications technology industry.
It aims at spearheading regional ICT infrastructure and services developments.
Its vision is to become the most dynamic and value-adding organisation that facilitates the building of a prosperous information society for the SADC region.
At the launch of the digital sharing platform in Port Louis, SATA chairman and CEO of Mauritius Telecom, Sherry Singh, said the platform to be known as SATA Connect will enhance sharing and collaboration among SATA members.
“The digital sharing platform will help SATA members stay connected and work together,” said Singh, who appointed as chairman of the SATA for 2019-2020.
“It will help in building stronger identity and relationships within the SATA community through the sharing of information among themselves and the general public also.
The public can access SATA Connect by using a mobile app, which is available for free download on App and Play Store.
The secure in-app messaging tool available on both the web and app allows SATA members to communicate more easily.
With the SATA Connect as a collaboration tool, everything is in one digital workspace.
