An indigenous software company, Jumeni Technologies, has launched a software for waste management.
The Ghanaian-based software company specialises in cloud-based field service management solutions.
On Wednesday, April 24, 2019 Jumeni launched a platform which is set to give the waste management industry a huge boost.
Jumeni’s platform is designed to increase the productivity of field workers, and improve customer service, by digitising data collection and offering access to more efficient payment options.
It also connects workers in the field with back office and systems to reduce paper-based and administrative processes.
Eyram Amedzor, Kevin Gawo and Emmanuel Oduro are the main brains and founders of the platform.
The three founded it in 2018, having graduated from the MEST Africa entrepreneurial training program in Accra.
“We believe software has a role to play in keeping our environment clean and sustainable. The waste sector is one of the biggest and most important industries but has seen little advancement in technology,” Jumeni’s CEO, Amedzor is quoted as saying.
“This is because waste management is complex. People, processes and technology must work seamlessly for these companies to effectively optimize their productivity, customer service and revenue.
“That’s why we designed a comprehensive platform to specifically address needs across waste management organizations, and believe we can accommodate any waste and recycling business.”
The platform has tools built for any mobile phone and allows managers to connect at any time and from anywhere.
This is because its back-office functions are built on a flexible, cloud-based architecture.
The software also makes it possible to process cash payments in the field efficiently and allows customers to pay to companies directly using Mobile Money and payment cards.
Jumeni intend to widen their scope and expand their operations to other African countries soon, after successfully rolling out in Ghana.
