Nigeria has been faced with huge difficulties in the area of access to authentic information; be it Business related or General information. The lack of a Proper, Trusted and Authentic Source of Information in Nigeria has left no choice to the general public both Local and Foreign to resort to using various Search Engines, which exposes them to the danger of falling prey to Imposters, Fake Websites, Un-Censored, Un-Verified and Misleading Information resulting to losing huge sums of monies to fraudsters annually. The above scenario has Deepened and labeled Nigeria with serious bad image.
In our effort to proffer solution to the above issues and revolutionize the dissemination of business information in a unified and coordinated way in Nigeria; create easy access to Genuine Companies, Business/Services, especially the SME’s in Nigeria for wider patronage; Contact Technologies Limited and Wand Inc, USA initiated this world-class custom built Business Taxonomy.
