Determined to provide an avenue for businesses to reach and connect with customers efficiently, Edward Amartey-Tagoe; co-founder of Nandimobile is focused on creating platforms which empower connections between businesses in Ghana and their customers. They launched a new product, Infoline, one of the biggest mobile business directories in Ghana.
Infoline is simply aÂ business directory service that enables mobile users in Ghana search businesses from a directory of over 18,000 local businesses in Ghana via SMS. A search result typically constitutesÂ business name, contact details, business address orÂ directions and theÂ business sector.
How Infoline works
The process involved in getting information about a business in Ghana from the platform is pretty simple. From any mobile network in Ghana, users can:
- Text â€˜â€™FIND [Name of Company]â€™â€™ to short code 1945 and
- In seconds, results are delivered to the userâ€™s phone.
Users may receive more than one result if the directory contains multiple entries with that keyword but comes at no extra cost to the user.

Itâ€™s totally free for businesses to list on the Infoline platform, and additionally,Â businesses are offered the flexibility of managing their own content from a dashboard, with an analytics feature Â enabling them keep track of who is viewing or requesting for information about them.
