We drive innovation across multiple industries and sectors. Our products support various business models such as Business-to-Business and Business-to-Consumer. Our existing and planned products address specific challenges across multiple industries and sectors.
Consumer needs are driven by the core requirement of convenience, inclusion and lower cost of being able to digitally drive their day to day activities. The Covid pandemic has also become a catalyst to drive a self service culture that is driven by digital technologies. At AfriNova, we are driven by the need to make these needs a reality for the masses of consumers on the African continent and the rest of the world.
In the African continent, Education is still seen as a key enabler of knowledge and hope for a youth that is able to participate in the global economy. Enabling an educated youth that is able to participate in this global economy requires a structured and different approach to look at the education value chain, including the links to employment in order to facilitate a globally enabled people for our continent. Our products address aspects such as attendance and grant distribution to enable education.
Our continet still has masses of people with no access to financial services and associated products. We believe that the way the finance industry and its processes are structured contributes largely to this challenge. In the finance industry, our passion is to make a contribution to financial and digital inclusion for the masses of people in the developing world. We aim to drive this goal by building products that are centered around the culture and processes of the communities.
Health, especially in the public sector content is still lagging in terms of fairness and convenience and the experience is mostly seen in developing countries. Our aim is to develop digital products that address the customer experience and management gaps in the health sector
The Retail industry, in our view still functions on the old school operating model that is human capital intensive with a huge gap to bring in a different experience for both the retailers and the customers through the use of various capabilities such as ecommerce, internet of things and digital payment methods
Urbanisation is a trend that will continue amplifying for the next few decades in the developing world as economic activity is concentrated in big Cities. These cities will remain under pressure in terms of infrastructure management, service delivery and jobn creation needs. Smart Cities will enable a different lens through which the cities see themselves. Areas such as cost management, improved and proactive service delivery and new opportunity creation in these cities will be enabled by the Smart City enablement. At the heart of this enablement will be the use of digital capabilities for data harvesting, connectivity, process automation and large scale analytics.
The Utility of the future is digital through and through as it aims to have a better grasp on customer needs and service delivery as well as fight off new competitors coming into the Utility space. The digital Utility will need to enable digital interactions with the customers and its partners. This is easy to say than put in practive as the Utilities have legacy bargage that makes it difficult for them to get a sense of where they are, including the ability to digital interact and remagine the customer experience.
Government and Public sector
It is no secret that the government structures are complex and function in manual and silo processes, making it difficult to deliver the required service delivery and citizen experience. The public sector also relies heavily on masses on people and manual, paper based processes which drive costs and complexity of the service delivery processes, leading to frustrations for Citizens and partners. Opportunities for driving digital government and public sector will drive the required efficiencies and unlock value for countries, we believe. Our approach is to combine the best of breed digital capabilities to enable manual processes to be online and digital in a proactive manner by building some product capabilities that have not existed to support these various government acts and laws.
