PRLog - Aug. 26, 2010 - SOMERVILLE, Mass. -- Sestava Nigeria Limited, a subsidiary of Afron Group of companies, announces that www.nawaooo.com, a Nigerian business directory, review and local search website has been released to the general public in Beta mode.

Nigeria’s largest database of Nigerian companies, businesses and institutions’ contact information

With over 40,000 companies, www.nawaooo.com is already the largest database of business contacts in the Nigerian online space. The company aims over time to serve as the one-stop-shop Nigerian business directory that of contact information related to Nigerian companies and institutions. To achieve this, “we will incentivize users and companies to put their contact details into the database and keep them current, thereby creating a marketplace where both users and companies come to find each other”, Mr. Ralph Styles, head of Public Relations for Sestava Nigeria Limited said in a message to the press. www.nawaooo.com also enables the refining of search results thus quickly becoming the Lagos business directory and Abuja business directory of choice, all at a mouse click.

More than just contact details

From a product perspective, www.nawaooo.com is a directory that not only shows the contact information of companies but also pictures related to their premises, a map to their premises, opening hours and other pertinent company details and data that the general public will appreciate. According to Mr. Styles, “From the very beginning we have focused on providing more information to the user public than just traditional yellow page type information; this is just the first step. Going forward, expect more forward looking and business friendly functionality that meet user needs and facilitate doing business in Nigeria”. For example, by searching on Lagos Entertainment or Abuja Entertainment, users are sent to company detail pages that give the user all sorts of information about the various entertainment establishments in these and any city in the country once the search is refined as such.

Free Searches & Free Postings

Searches on www.nawaooo.com are Free. Users will be able to search for companies according to various criteria.  For example, a user can search on Entertainment in Nigeria. The user can then later refine the search to mean Lagos Entertainment or Abuja Entertainment, all for free. Posting and maintaining a company on www.nawaooo.com is also free. Companies are however able to pay for premium services, such as increasing the number of product pictures they want to display.

Company Data Ownership

According to Mr. Styles, Afron Group’s belief is that the data on a company’s detail page on www.nawaooo.com should be under the control of the company itself. “Only this way is the company able to post all sorts of promotions, company pictures, company products, etc, enabling us to truly provide companies with a storefront where they can reach their constituents”, he said. For that reason, a company can either create its profile from scratch and assign a password or where a company’s data already exists in the www.nawaooo.com database, the company owner can contact the Nawaooo.com team via a link on each page, claim the company in question and provide proof of affiliation to the company, to own the company on Nawaooo.com. Again, Restaurants in Lagos or Companies in Abuja, or restaurants anywhere in Nigeria for that matter can now own their establishments and display pictures of food, promos, prices etc. as they so desire.

Nawaooo 4 Mobiles

Sestava Nigeria Limited is also pleased to announce m.nawaooo.com, the mobile website of www.nawaooo.com. m.nawaooo.com is a simpler and mobile friendly version of  www.nawaooo.com with minimal graphics and a design layout optimized for displaying on mobile phones. Given that the number of users accessing the internet via mobile phones is six-times that of users accessing it using computers, we believe Nawaooo 4 mobiles (m.nawaooo.com) is a product the users will appreciate, Mr. Styles said.

Product Leadership

According to Mr. Ralph Styles, the PR secretary of Nawaooo.com, www.nawaooo.com aims to take the Nigerian business directory space and general internet in the direction similar to what pertains in Silicon Valley of the USA. The site aims to utilize the best technology and product thinking around, to create solutions that have relevance for the unique Nigerian socio-cultural landscape.
