"Ethiopia is the fastest growing economy in Africa and a market that presents big opportunities and we are delighted to be entrusted to contribute with our solutions and experience in the digitalization process in the country in general and for Ethio Telecom in particular", says Tommy Eriksson, CEO of SDS.

"Making a progress towards a digital market we are grateful that we are rolling-out Electronic Voucher Distribution (EVD) in partnership with Seamless and Smart Digital Technologies that will enable us to provide flawless services to our customers, by increasing the availability and the convenience of prepaid recharge and top-up options." says Her Excellency Frehiwot Tamru, Chief Executive officer of Ethio Telecom.

SDS and Smart Digital Technology have been working together with Ethio Telecom during the past months in different initiatives and projects for the deployment and launch of different digital solutions, aimed to improve the efficiency in the sales and distribution operations and to enable a digital engagement with trade partners and consumers in the market.

"For us as Smart Digital Technology, it is a pride to be able to contribute to the strong development and modernization of different sectors and industries in Ethiopia. We find in SDS an ideal partner, who has the operational focus and technology, as well as several years of experience from other markets and who is committed to work with us in delivering the platforms and services that will help Ethio Telecom to achieve their goals and strategies and that creates a strong base for a long term mutual beneficial business", says Surafel Belay, CEO of Smart Digital Technology.
