NAIROBI, Kenya, Aug 21- Corporate Internet and Information Technology Solutions provider AccessKenya Group has launched a mobile service solution for smartphones and tablets.

The application features a self service module that allows faster resolution of customer queries including a live chat support, one touch dialling and fully integrated mobile payment options.

Available for Apple, Android and Windows Phones, the initiative stems from a client survey that discovered a majority of AccessKenya clients were heavy users of digital mobile platforms.

“We are seeing an enhanced adoption of mobile technologies in the conduct of business including payments and interaction by our clients. It is only natural therefore, that we develop a presence on the mobile platform as we endeavour to meet the engagement needs of our clients,” AccessKenya Group Deputy Chief Executive Kris Senanu said.

The application is a value added service proposition aimed at the firm’s 8,000 plus corporate clients and is part of company’s business acceleration strategy announced in February this year.

Research by McKinsey, indicates that in addition to laptops and Virtual Private Networks, smartphones and tablets are giving executives new levels of mobile connectivity and interactivity, thus supporting their use for work with an estimated 80 percent of smartphones being used for business engagements.
