FSD Africa is a financial inclusion market change programme that works to reduce poverty by strengthening Africa’s financial markets. Established in 2012, they are funded by UK aid from the UK government, with a mandate to transform financial markets across sub-Saharan Africa. They believe healthy financial markets are the foundation of a fair and thriving economy.
Arthur Ndegwa, the Data Manager, Development Impact at FSD Africa said that they were looking at leveraging on cloud technology to provide a platform for data collection and reporting and this resulted in them shopping for a reliable hosting solution with reliable support.
They selected Microsoft Azure as their preferred platform of development and hosting, and Simplify IT as the partner of choice to provide and support them through this process.
Simplify IT worked with the FSD Africa team to deliver a platform that would meet the demands of their application and provided the requisite technological support for development and application publishing. Arthur Ndegwa said after the project that they now have a solid and robust application platform that meets the demands of their operations across the African continent. He further stated that "Simplify IT has been very helpful and responsive to our needs anytime they were called upon. We rarely experience any downtime with the hosting solution and the support provided is always timely, efficient and effective.
