-- Anviz Global, an American-based, security company is looking to make a strong statement at IFSEC South Africa this month. Many at the company feel that IFSEC South Africa is an opportunity to promote the Anviz brand beyond the traditional market of South Africa. Company representatives see IFSECSA as the perfect opportunity to expand its consumer-base in the entire southern Africa region. Anviz, which specializes in biometric access control, RFID products, and surveillance devices, views this region as an unexploited opportunity. While the company is relatively new on the African continent, Anviz’s presence has been steadily increasing. Since striking its first deal with partners on the continent in 2012, Anviz has created a network of partners in a dozen countries. The company is preparing to expand that network into countries such Angola, Namibia, Mozambique, Botswana and several other states in the region.
Anviz’s regional sales director for sub-Saharan Africa, Brian Fazio, believes, “there has been tremendous growth in several markets in southern Africa. Countries like Mozambique and Angola have been averaging significant economic growth for over a decade. There is huge potential in these countries. Anviz has already seen some success in South Africa. Now it’s time to expand into the other countries within the region. Rapid economic growth usually entails private and public sector construction within all three major economic fields. Anviz is looking to be a prominent provider of security devices to many of these types of installations”
Rita Zhang, the regional channel manager for Africa, recognizes Anviz’s potential in this market. “Anviz has built the logistical capabilities to work in a market as large and diverse as South Africa. However, markets in countries such as the Democratic Republic of Congo and Zimbabwe present a different set of challenges that need to be addressed. We are looking forward to this opportunity. While we are pretty new to the region, our track-record of success in other developing regions such as South America and the Indian sub-continent, suggests that we are well-situated to handle these challenges.”
Rita Zhang confidently adds.
Anviz offers a broad range of access control and time attendance products, ranging from biometrics, to surveillance, and RFID devices.
