At the beginning of this year New Africa Technology Company introduced and launched the eScan Anti-virus product in the Liberian Market.
Actually, it all began when we received an anonymous marketing call from India in January from some pushy tele marketer trying to convince us that they want us to become a partner and distributor for the Liberian market. As usual we shrugged them off and told them to send us an email instead.
The email bombardment began and we could not resist checking them out.

This sounded interesting and we decided to take the matter up to the next level and wrote them back asking for pricing details.
We eventually decided to go ahead and signed a partnership agreement. When our Head of Operations visited India he set up an appointment with eScan and personally visited their offices in Mumbai to further understand and strengthen the already established relationship. He came back with some advertising materials.
Since then NATC has been able to install various eScan Anti-virus products on our regular client computers. We are yet to begin retail marketing and intend to do so, now that we are convinced beyond doubts that this Anti-virus indeed works hard and is much better than Norton, Kaspersky, MacAfee etc. (There have been instances where after we uninstall these known brands from a client machine and install eScan AV, eScan has been able to detect and quarantine viruses which were not detected by these known brands).
Our clients feel much safer and we feel happy.
