Software Technology company, Crown Interactive, has offered grants of up to N400 million in value in products and support to 20 medium-sized Nigerian manufacturers, distributors of fast-moving consumer goods and raw materials suppliers.

This was announced by the company as part of its ongoing Automate and Collaborate campaign.

In addition, it is offering its CICOD Supply Chain Software at no charge for one year to the companies in the Nigerian market that meet specified criteria.

The promotion represents a value of N20 million delivered to each firm in terms of the technology offered and support service rendered.

This is a result of addressing common challenges relating to the manufacturing supply chain, including customer order, inventory and workflow management, and provides a platform for electronic payments and inventory finance.

The grant offer presents the firm’s supply chain management solution to the selected firms and would be offered the CICOD Suite of business support systems (BSS) free for the first 12 months.

Afterwards, it will be available at a monthly fee of N12,000/user but with no obligation on the company to continue to use the service.

Other benefits include free software implementation and training as well as export promotions opportunities and access to inventory finance.

The applications within the CICOD BSS can be easily integrated into existing systems within an organisation’s Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software or operated independently to provide a platform for automating key business processes.

The offer has been opened exclusively to enterprises involved in manufacturing, key distributors of fast-moving consumer goods, and suppliers of raw materials that are either exporters or have demonstrated an interest in exporting their products.
