During this visit to Addis Abba CNS VP Anirban Chaudhuri also met with representatives of Quantum to conclude the CNS-Quantum Partnership. Established in 2016 by engineering graduates from the distinguished AAU class of 2015, Quantum's inception coincided with the Ethiopian government's push to foster smaller businesses for job creation. Quantum honed its expertise, specializing in subcontracting ICT projects and providing preventive and reactive maintenance services. Notably, Quantum became a key contributor to the Addis Ababa City Administration's housing projects, solidifying its commitment to the local community

In a remarkably short time, Quantum has transformed from a fledgling startup into a respected player in the industry, boasting a diverse clientele that includes federal government agencies, regional bureaus, financial institutions, and NGOs. Quantum has cultivated partnerships with international companies as their trusted service provider. The signing of the CNS-Quantum agreement cements its role as a local representative in Ethiopia. This strategic alliance marks a turning point for Quantum, as it shifts its focus toward providing various software and SaaS-related services to its clients through the delivery of CNS renowned solutions, reaffirming our joint commitment to innovation and excellence.

As both firms continues to innovate and grow, our joint team of professionals are ready to shape the future of the industry in Ethiopia.
