witsa-newsAs you may recall from our  Board meeting on May 22, there was an

interest in creating a B2B web portal for WITSA members. In that regard, we have contacted a long time acquaintance, Mr Dan Salcedo,the founder and owner of Open Entry. Dan and his company OpenEntry won WITSA highest Global ICT Excellence Award for Digital Opportunity several years ago and they are experts in hosting and operating B2B and B2C web portals.

Based on the close relationship we have with Dan, he is offering

WITSA the opportunity to offer all WITSA members the ability to

connect to other WITSA members in a global marketplace. For your

information, please open the preliminary demoÂ

Http:// As you see from the rough demo, Open

Entry is intended to allow entrepreneurs from developing countries

with the opportunity to advertise and sell their products around the

globe. In WITSA’s case we can use the Open Entry Portal to

allow WITSA member companies to advertise and market their products and

services globally BUT NOT sell through the portal; rather to connect

with potential buyers and sellers. In other words, the portal will

allow for companies to connect with potential buyers and sellers so

that they can contact each other to establish relationships in the

hopes that business will take place in the near or distant future.Â

Basically, WITSA can offer its association members (per country) an

opportunity for their members to showcase and hopefully sell their

products & services while networking around the globe.

For example, CSK member companies can join this online marketplace, a

WITSA B2B Portal. A special Box/Location called (Kenya/CSK)

Would be set up by Dan Salcedo and his team. CSK would then go out to

their members and sign them up to add their products and services to

the online marketplace.

We believe this could be an outstanding potential opportunity for

WITSA members and their corporate membership.

At this stage, we are working with Dan to set up a test site that

will be featured in a formal proposal to the WITSA Board of

Directors. The next step is to populate the beta test with a few

assistance. Could I kindly ask for your assistance in sending us Â

eight (8)  CSK member company names and  URLs? We will also need
