Our products include Navigation units, safety and security equipment, solar units, and installations, plus more
2. How was TecAfrica Solutions born? How did you start?
TecAfrica solutions was established in 2019,It really started as a passion for gadgets and tech because of my retail background, having worked for South Africa’s big retail companies from a young age and mainly dealing with gadgets and training stuff members on different products,Tech became part of my DNA.
I used to have clients who would come to the store and would only want my assistance and were willing to wait for me in case I was busy.
This was a shock to me as there were like 15 other sales reps in our store, but they chose to wait for me, Its only later on I realised that my product knowledge was really good and I offered them world class service which is rear in South Africa and they felt comfortable with me as I had good communication skills, well still have lol. Even after I left or resigned from these retail companies, I had clients searching for me on social media platforms, just to contact me and seek for advice on new products.
This motivated me to turn my passion into a business.
