ECONET Wireless, the leading telecoms and technology company in Zimbabwe, is once again showcasing a wide array of innovative and technology driven applications at their Zimbabwe Agriculture Show (ZAS) stand which ends today.

The company's exhibition this year features activations and demonstrations from Econet products, which include BidBuddie, Econet showcases at agric show BuddieBeatz, Elevate, Connected Lifestyle and many more.

The company's chief commercial officer Navdeep Kapur said he was gratified by the public's interest in Econet's products, saying the pace of new innovation adoption in the country was particularly high.

"We are happy with the interest and uptake

of our products, and very impressed with the pace at which Zimbabweans adopt new technologies and new and innovative ways of do- ing things,"he said.

Kapur said Econet was inviting more established and up-and-coming musi- cians to visit the Econet stand and sign up to get their music on the BidBuddie App for free.

"Artistes will receive royalties for any of their music that is streamed or downloaded on the App each month," said Kapur. Currently, the music platform has over 600 000 users.

He said the App was helping fight music piracy and empowering local musicians to make more money from their work as it provided a platform for their music to be heard around the world, including Zimbabweans in the Diaspora.

Econet is also running Virtual Reality (VR) gaming on a daily basis, where customers are able to immerse themselves into the latest gaming technology and play exciting games using Oculus technology and fast 4G connectivity.

GM for marketing at Econet Wireless, Mellany Msengezi, said: "The Zimbabwe Agricultural Show is a great platform for engagement with the public and with our customers. It presents an opportunity for customers to share their needs with us and also for them to interact with and try a wide range of new technologies that we have on display. We believe this year's interactive elements have been a hit among both the young and the old."
