“Q-KON is also proud to be selected for the Newtec partner program. Extending our relationship with Newtec strengthens our capabilities to provide solutions and to become a player in the Africa’s broadcast industry,” Bezuidenhout adds.
Abdurrahman Razak, Regional Sales Director Africa for Newtec, expressed the company’s delight at having Q-KON join its bePART Program and also stated their belief that this will materialise in significant value-add to the services channel and the continent’s broadcast industry as a whole.
