Omatek launches smallest notebooks in Ghana

Leading Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) in the country, Omatek Computers Limited, has launched its smallest notebooks, the 8 and 10 inches series, in the neighbouring country of Ghana.

Managing Director, Omatek, Mrs. Florence Seriki, who was accompanied by the General Manager, Omatek Ghana, Mr. Kobina Jackson, said at the launch that the products were designed specifically for the Ghanaian environments and the youths both at the tertiary and secondary levels.

“Our special Omatek 8” and 10” notebooks are built specifically with the youths both at tertiary and secondary schools and the Ghanaian environment in mind. It is sleek, tight and very durable. Its compactness makes it very easy to take to lectures, take notes and for meetings,” she said.

Mrs. Seriki also said that the new products, which are the most current classics have not only replaced the tablet notebooks but that it’s light natured and incomparable with any notebook in the world.

She stressed that they were assembled locally and have added technology transfer required for the country.

“In addition, it’s adding to the technology upgrade, employment generation and youth empowerment in the country. They are obviously backed locally by a robust technically supplied back-up,” she asserted.

Mrs. Seriki urged schools interested in the products to write an undertaking indicating their interests in the products to Omatek bankers who would ensure collation and remittance of rentals directly on behalf of the students, teachers and lecturers to enable the banks deal directly with students and individuals.

Equally, Mrs. Seriki expressed confidence that Ghanaian schools will take advantage of the company’s special offer to be benefactors of the initiative towards bridging the digital divide in the country and the rest of the world.

Also speaking, Mr. Jackson explained Omatek’s plans of introducing e-youth, e-tertiary, e-consumer and e-mobile schemes, is to allow for easy acquisition of the notebooks in a flexible manner.

“This initiative will allow payment that can span for between 6, 12 and 24 months. The rentals could also be built inside the school fees for one to two sessions to reduce the financial burden on parents to a minimal level,” he added.
