Sudatel brought with it three promising Sudanese start-ups to this year's Mobile World Congress.

As always, a lot of companies from across the globe were at this year's Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona. One of those was Sudan's Sudatel.

Participating for the third year in a row, the company demonstrated its own capabilities and discussed its plans for 2019. Sudatel also brought to the show three companies chosen from its Spark Initiative, a programme that is supporting innovative, ICT-focused Sudanese start-ups.

The three companies are all innovative enterprise software-focused companies delivering services that solve specific problems faced by businesses in Sudan. They have scalable business models with the potential to expand outside Sudan.

The companies were chosen by a committee of experienced businesspeople in Sudan after the opportunity was publicised across the country.  The three start-up companies were:

Yazan Solutions, a GIS & IT solutions company that believes that digitalisation is the present and future of business. Its mission is to be among the leaders of the GEO Solutions in the MENA region, and its target customers are in the FMCG, banking, telecom, courier and e-commerce industries;

Xerus Instruments, which provides a mobile app that enables Mobile Network Operators to test voice quality and video streaming, both indoors and outdoors, to improve the quality of experience for their customers without the need for highly-paid field engineers and sophisticated test equipment;, which provides a website and mobile app that enable quality construction materials and maintenance from a variety of vendors to be sourced, bought and shipped at very competitive prices.

Of the start-ups, Tarig Hamza Zain El Abdein, CEO of Sudatel, said: "They are all promising companies that have spotted gaps in the market – both within and outside Sudan."
