A Nigerian tech company, Newwaves Ecosystems, on Wednesday launched the Konn3ct app, a virtual meeting and conferencing platform that could enable seamless connection of more than 200 people at a time.
The company unveiled the Konn3ct app at a virtual press conference in Lagos.
Newwaves Ecosystems CEO Femi Williams said the app was developed to bridge the gap created by existing apps in the market.
Williams said the app came with powerful features that would allow more than 200 people to connect seamlessly at a time.
He noted that the platform was designed to compete with other apps like Zoom and Microsoft Team in the global market.
“We designed Konn3ct with all the features of other platforms and additional features that set us apart.
“One of the features that sets us apart from the rest is the User Dashboard which allows you to do whatever you want to do on our platform,” he said.
Williams added that the Konn3ct platform was affordable and also offered a free 60-minute basic plan, compared to the 40-minute offered by other platforms.
The director said Konn3ct users would also have access to a unique room, which they could customize with their logo.
He said that despite the low bandwidth situation in Nigeria and other countries, the app was designed to consume little data.
Williams said the app has also been designed with the highest level of security to protect users, adding that it supports multiple devices and can be configured in multiple languages.
In his remarks, Mr. Kashifu Inuwa, the director general of the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA), said that Konn3ct will soon dominate the global market as it has great characteristics to become acceptable to the global scale.
He also noted that it had low data consumption and other conferencing options that would make it stand out.
“We are delighted that the app will add to the great contributions of the ICT sector to the Nigerian economy.
“At NITDA, we pride ourselves on our leadership through innovation, therefore, we are very excited about this innovation coming from Newwaves Systems Ltd.
“Konnect will create jobs and reduce capital flight while improving data security.
“We encourage all government ministries, departments and agencies, as well as religious organizations and NGOs to adopt the solution in accordance with the Nigerian guidelines for local ICT content,” he said. (NOPE)
