We have 4 marketers who carry out marketing and market research on the applications we develop and their market reach and potential.

Areas of Expertise

We are specialized in developing ERP systems providing them as SAAS software. We run a small micro-finance called Skybank whose main client base are students. We are working with ERP software in Education, Health and Finance. We are moving into mobile banking and online payments and wish to use mifosX as our online banking platform for our clients and as a payment method on our health and educational platform as a mode of payments for our clients. We are interfacing the platform with Mobile money in Cameroon so as to ease the mobile banking aspect of the application.

Relevant Industry Experience

We have experience in MFI and banking for over 4 years as two of our core team members have worked and managed such institutions. They have worked with other proprietary systems such as Alpha, and we fully understand the limitations that exist on those systems and how to we can fix that with the mifos X platform. We have a full knowledge on understanding the workflow of MFI and banks and how to automate their processes with the right software package.

Future Goals & Strategy for Mifos

Our three year goal commences as from January 2016, and we plan to accomplish the following

  1. We want Mifos X to be the MFI software package in Cameroon and Central African Countries being prescribed from the managerial board and used by all the MFIs to accomplish their business processes
  2. Develop Mobile solutions on the Mifos X platform to enable both clients and administrators carry out their transactions on the platform.
  3. Mifos X should be a reference MFI application and is fully customizable and extendable
  4. We want a full integration of Mifos X and mobile money.
  5. We want to also integrate Mifos X and Bit-coin

Most of these solutions we plan to bring to the Mifos X platform will need help from the community in terms of their development hence most of the technology will be open
