28 April 2017


PARIS, France, April 25th 2017,-/African Media Agency (AMA)/- FAMOCO, the leader in secure professional Android devices, announces a major commercial partnership with Orange Cameroon. A strategic choice by Orange to increase the efficiency of its distribution network (reduce fraud, theft and loss of data) and to meet compliance needs.

Orange is using FAMOCO's technology to accelerate the digitization of distribution in Africa by equipping agents in the field. The technology helps to better identify buyers, increase agent efficiency and address the problems of data theft and loss.

Lionel Baraban, co-founder and CEO of FAMOCO said:"Consumers in Africa do not have physical stores to purchase phones and pre-paid SIM cards. They are sold on the street in an indirect sales approach through a network of thousands of Orange agents. These agents need to be equipped with the right business tools to offer the best service to Orange customers."

The FAMOCO solution is adapted to distribution in the field Orange Cameroon was not completely satisfied with existing tools. Smartphones on the market are designed for the general public and are not sufficiently secure for professional use. Users can install applications, games and access the Internet. This means data can be easily pirated or falsified and the phones are extremely coveted by thieves.

In its search for new sales tools, Orange Cameroon was seduced by the capabilities of the FAMOCO solution and its FX200 device. The device is secure, closed and fully customizable to meet business requirements. The FX200 has a large screen, suitable for mobile workers, that makes it easy to take notes and capture documents and data.

In addition, FAMOCO has a SaaS platform that allows the device configuration to be fully customized: installation of business applications, SMS, dialer, etc. Orange Cameroon can remotely control all devices deployed in the field, adjust their configuration and deploy new application updates when required.

"With the FX200, our agents have a native Orange application directly installed on the devices, and other sales related applications can only be installed remotely by the Orange administrator. In this way, we have full control of field agent devices," said Souhaïb Deen Bangoura, Quality and Risk Control Director, Orange Cameroon
