After the successful IMImobile acquisition of South African based Archer Digital in October of 2015, the team in South Africa have been laying the groundwork for supplementing the solutions they offer to blue-chip clients with the IMImobile product suite. Negotiations with two of South Africa’s premier banking institutions began in 2016 around installing elements of the IMIconnect digital customer engagement platform into those banks. A combined effort, utilising multiple IMImobile resources from around the world, has resulted in the first full installation of IMIconnect into the fastest growing and most innovative bank in Africa.
As this first of many successes nears completion, and the interest shown in the IMImobile software and solution suite grows, it is an opportune time to present a more unified corporate image to the South African and African markets by changing the name of Archer Digital to IMImobile South Africa. With effect from 1 November 2017 our South African operation now bears the IMImobile name. The reaction from clients has been extremely positive and supportive and will enable our South African business to grow with customers knowing that the world-class digital communications technology solutions available to them are tried and tested on an international stage, and yet customized for the African market with a local IMImobile company on hand to provide ongoing support and relationship management.
