Situated in Southern Africa, Zambia is a completely land-locked nation. It is surrounded by DRC, Tanzania, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Namibia, Botswana and Angola. Most of the population is concentrated around Lusaka, the capital city of Zambia and around the Copperbelt Province in the north-west. Zambia became independent in 1964 and has made rapid strides in development ever since. It is drained mainly by two river basins – the Congo basin and the Zambezi basin. Covering a very small portion of the north eastern part of the country, there is Lake Rukwa which facilitates the internal drainage system.
Economy of Zambia
The economy of Zambia has traditionally been a copper mining economy with the exports from Copper covering 85% of the entire exports of the country. The government has recently started issuing licenses for the prospecting of other minerals like nickel, tin, copper and uranium. It is expected that nickel will become the most important mineral to be exported in the near future. Agriculture is the other critical component of Zambia’s economy which provides many more jobs than mining. Zambia’s major cash crop is maize and is considered as the staple food of the country. The government is moving on the path of economic reforms and it is aggressively pursuing a path of economic diversification to reduce the country’s dependence on copper. The major beneficiaries of this thrust are tourism, agriculture, gemstone mining and hydro-power.
Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) in Zambia
Zambian enterprises can benefit tremendously from an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) System deployment for enhancing their productivity. With this versatile and robust Business Management Software, the global competitive challenges can be met easily. An ERP is an excellent Enterprise Automation Tool which can be customized to a client’s specific requirements and ensures the full utilization of valuable resources. An ERP Suite can be securely implemented on-premises on a resident server or on-cloud, as per the customer’s requirement. It is a multi-lingual, multi-currency, multi-location and web-enabled software which can be seamlessly accessed even over low bandwidth internet connectivity from remote locations. An ERP Software is modular in nature and can be deployed module by module thereby ensuring that even cash-strapped enterprises can conveniently implement an ERP Software in phases.
