No More DIY! Use An Expert Business Consultant
Ese Nikori


In Nigeria, the business sector is becoming more cutthroat as the day breaks. For example, Nigeria MSMEs account for 96% of the total number of businesses in the country.  This increase has made the business climate more competitive. Business owners are exploring and implementing better ways to grow, expand, make profits and offer the best value for money. 

Research shows that a company that hires a consultant gets ahead and stays ahead of the rest. If you are reading this article, it is time to join the league of successful businesses by hiring an expert business consultant.


A business consultant is a professional that provides professional and expert advice in a particular area. These areas include management, accountancy, human resources, security, marketing, finance, science engineering, digital transformation or any other field.

I use the word 'expert' because there is no legal protection given to the job title. Carry out your research before engaging one. Ask questions centred around qualification, experience, customer reviews and references. For example, an online search of erpSOFTapp shows that we are gold partners certified in Odoo V11, V12, V13 and V14. Click here to learn more about our pedigree.
