MTN Nigeria, in collaboration with Zoom Video Communications and SpeechLogix, has launched Meetings+, a video conferencing platform, designed for small and medium-sized enterprises.

MTN, a leader in telecommunications across various continents, has joined forces with Zoom, renowned for its reliable and user-friendly video conferencing solutions. Together, they have created a platform that combines MTN's extensive network infrastructure and reach with Zoom's cutting-edge technology.

According to the General Manager of MTN Business, Charles Okonkwo, at the unveiling of Meetings+ in Lagos recently, the video conference platform is a gateway to a more connected and prosperous future for Nigerian businesses.

He stated that the platform offered a user-friendly and reliable experience, integrating video, voice, and chat functionalities across various devices, from desktops and mobile phones to conference room systems.

Key features of this platform include high-definition video and audio quality, advanced security measures to safeguard your privacy, and compatibility across multiple devices and operating systems. Additionally, MTN and Zoom's joint venture prioritizes user feedback, ensuring continuous improvements and enhancements to meet evolving needs.

Okonkwo remarked that the partnership with SpeechLogix and Zoom emerged from a shared commitment to tackle the challenge of payment constraints and offer flexible packages for short and ad-hoc engagements.

“Now, users can easily and more conveniently pay for online engagements or meetings in naira, subscribing to short sessions, with a bundled data allowance for meetings.

The Head of Global Sales at SpeechLogix, Haitham El-Hanafi, said, “Speech Logix and Zoom teamed up to bring a platform designed to help operators boost their revenue.

“The Zoom video technology and the SpeechLogix innovative modules combine a truly all-in-one platform that is deployed in less than 60 days,” he enunciated.

The Head of SME Segment, Enterprise Business at MTN Nigeria, Omowunmi Olatunbosun, underscored the platform’s user-friendly design and affordability.

According to Olatunbosun, Meetings+ offers a familiar and convenient payment experience, allowing users to pay in naira through the telco’s popular mobile money platform, MoMo, or via the MyMTN NG app.
