MiDCOM dealership grows to 250 in one year

The priority dealers are the tentacles of the mobile phone business. They are to MiDCOM what it is to telecommunication companies. It supplies with original Nokia phones. In under one year of operation, MiDCOM has over 250 established priority dealers of the Original Nokia phones in Uganda, and they are increasing by the day.

Akash Kumar, General Manager, admits that the priority dealers, have been very pivotal in MiDCOM’s operations, availing the original Nokia phones to the wider public. He attributes MiDCOM’s rapid growth and strength to the creation of a strong relationship with its dealers.

He says as a parent company they also undertake to provide the dealers with all the necessary support considering that besides being a main source of job creation, the dealers have played a big part in widening their distribution networks all over the country. MiDCOM is now present in towns like Arua, Mbarara and Masaka.

He admits that the priority dealers also give them feed back on the performance of certain products on the market, which information they subsequently also pass on to the Nokia headquarters.

Paul Tumwesigye, of Nile Com, one of the priority dealers says selling original Nokia phones on behalf of MiDCOM has been a blessing to their business. He says it has seen them expand operations in a short time.

“We think it was a very good idea coupling with MiDCOM, a renowned genuine Nokia phone supplier in East Africa and the Middle East. It has increased our clientele and we have achieved great success with them. It is a pleasure they have enabled us serve the public best,” he says.

Tumwesigye says they have been in operation for over five years and recorded tremendous success, and their vision remains to be the leading customer service providers in the industry.

“We now operate four outlets and are soon opening up a fifth outlet in Wandegeya. The official launch is November 11 and we expect to give gifts to those in attendance and the first visitors to the shop,” Tumwesigye says. He says the essence of the Wandegeya outlet is to take services closer to those who need them adding that they want to give Makerere Campus community, the same good services without extra cost.

“They should just stroll and pick up the latest genuine product on the market without as much as a hassle,” Tumwesigye mentions.

Liz Wanyana, a manager at Little Red Shop, a MiDCOM priority dealer on Cham Towers, affirms that business had never been as brisk as when they had entered inot partnership to sell original Nokia phones.

“We have only been in the partnership for three months but our sales, are remarkably higher than before. MiDCOM really does enough promotions and advertising on radio. As priority dealers it is a commendable service as the public, seeking genuine and affordable Nokia phones, buy from us,” Wanyana says.
