About Us
We are an Information Technology startup temporarily based in Ghana, West Africa, founded by a former banker and practicing accountant. We see a huge problem of poor efforts of banks in Ghana and Africa to improve customer experience, in addition to the general long standing industry tolls exacted on clients such as high cost of mobile money and banking transactions, low savings habit, clients’ inability to track and manage personal finances, high risk of carrying cash, governments’ efforts towards a cashless economy, and the current global acceptance and future expectation of omni channel banking coupled with unclear means of preparation by most banks towards this new era; we have laid down a powerful technology strategy to prepare financial institutions; investment houses, lending houses, insurance firms and their clients in Africa and other parts of the world towards this soon to come global era of omni channel banking and financial services with its Web and mobile app. This will be achieved by pulling resources of partnering financial houses onto this one platform of world class customer experience.
