2018 has been a great year. We have been over a few challenges and opened up to new opportunities. We thank our Almighty God for the strength and resilience that He accorded us through the journey all the way to the end of the year. Also, we ought to thank Him for the new year, 2019. As they say, the end of a journey marks the beginning of a new one. I see this as an opportunity to execute the plans we crafted in 2018 and to implement what we learnt from mistakes made in 2018. More so, there is a window open. All opportunities that were realized in 2018 that were not pursued, this is the time to accomplish and get things done.
Technology keeps on shifting everyday. This is an industry in which you sleep one day and you wake up to a totally different realm. At Cypher Africa we have this in mind and our research and development team is always up to the task of ensuring that we are at par with technology shifts. Even so, we make effort to ensure that our customers receive the best of services and keep them updated. 2019 is a year for growth and fruitfulness. We don’t want to just provide service, but services that are productive and transform. We want to transfer technology that will take our society to the next level. What are some of the exciting inventions that we are preparing for you this year?
- SomaTap : Education has been on the limelight with discipline in our institution taking the center-stage. Cheating in examinations has also been highlighted. We thank the government and other stakeholders for doing the best they can in ensuring that things are in order. At Cypher Africa, SomaTap is a revolutionary technology that will change how we manage our students and pupils. By use of Blockchain and BigData, we have come up with an intuitive SomaTap card that will enable institutions to better manage students. The invention is currently being piloted in a number of schools and we look forward to a success.
- ERP For Everyone : ERP systems are expensive and complex. However, when given a different approach, everyone can own one. We are bringing the cost of ownership down to a significant level that will enable SME’s to run their businesses efficiently. In partnership with other stakeholders, we look forward to fostering better accounting and management processes in SME’s
- Agribusiness : Mkulima Bora has been our championing program for 2018. We have seen farmers transformed and their lives enlightened under Mkulima Bora. We are adding more value into the platform to ensure that we provide a full end to end value chain to our farmers. This of course will be in conjunction with other stakeholders. One of the key areas that we are focusing on is Food Security. We want to make full use of technology in ensuring that we contribute towards the government’s agenda. We are working with the counties to come up with a paradigm that will ensure we realize this goal.
2019 will be an interesting year and we thank everyone who took part in making 2018 an amazing year. Our clients, we are so glad and blessed to have you. Our partners are always engaged in ensuring that our programs run smoothly. Our employees too have done an amazing job in pushing the company to another level. Overall, we thank the Lord for 2018 and hope for a better 2019.
Thank you all and God bless you.
