In 2018 we developed a point of sale software for small businesses, Supermarkets, whole sellers and stores. We Managed to have users from different locations using the software to manage their business activities which included records of their sales, profits, losses, customer details, purchases and debts. As we continued getting clients for our software, a pandemic hit which led to a lockdown and we couldn’t continue business as usual. Wondering what to do next we thought of finding away to remain in business and also to help our clients make sales through our software. This led to development of many ideas but later we realized that developing a location based online market where our clients could register their businesses and add what they sell was a better way their customers could find what they sell without physical presence at the shop. We developed eddukalyo.com in a way that a customer goes to the site, picks a shop he/she usually buys from, Adds items to the cart, pays for the goods via mobile money, the shop receives the order and sends goods to the customer’s location as quickly as possible. For more details on how this technology works go to eddukalyo.com.
We are looking forward to seeing small, medium and large businesses remain in operation during and after the pandemic through using our platform.
