Latest news about Sahara
Sahara Shop has been a huge success, with hundreds of
sales enquiries (telephonic, email and Internet forms) in it's first few
days of operation, and without a complete on-line catalog either, this
is a huge achievement. This has placed the Sahara computer brand
on the first steps to a successful e-company entry, placing it on an equal
footing and perhaps even higher than most other major brands
in South Africa on it's initial entry onto the e-commerce world.
Latest news on ComXpert International
ComXpert International has become one of only four major e-commerce
computer stores in South Africa to achieve the top 5% position on
the Internet (that is all web sites, all categories, all countries - worldwide)*
- placing ComX as one of the top Internet based companies in Africa, and
the managers are confidant that the success of it's main store will soon
filter to the brand stores as well, which is no surprise that ComX has
yet again been negotiating with another distributor - we make e-companies
work in south Africa! You

Internet. The top search engine listed South African companies in all
categories were considered.
