Pathways Technologies Ltd (formerly Pathways International Ltd), a data, technology and innovation company has officially launched its services for the African market.
In attendance were professionals from the technology, policy and financial services sectors.
The US-founded business intelligence company aims to deliver business-focused data, technology and innovation solutions that will help its customers create and deliver value to their users.
“The business is structured along five verticals: Business Intelligence and Data Analytics, Software and Applications Development, Fintech Innovation, Data Analytics Training and Staff Augmentation, and Digital Transformation Advisory Services,” stated the firm.
Pathways Technologies Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Joel Onditi said the firm aims to partner with existing organizations, to make Africa a better place.
“In this spirit, we are building true alliances with like-minded players. We have already made headway with great partnerships with globally recognized companies that offer data and digital transformation, and business intelligence solutions. We believe partnerships such as these, not only help us serve our customers better, but they help us in undertaking the training of our youth in highly specialized technology fields like data analytics, data science and software development,” said Mr Onditi.
Pathways Technologies Ltd has recently attained the designation of Solutions Partner in Data & AI in the Microsoft Cloud Partner Program making it one of the first Microsoft partners to attain this designation globally.
This designation is awarded only to Microsoft-approved partners who have satisfied Microsoft’s requirements for demonstrating and validating the company’s technical capabilities in the Microsoft Cloud Partner Program.
This designation will allow Pathways Technologies to support all businesses with the technical capabilities, experience, and ability that will deliver world-class customer outcomes aligned with modern technologies and innovation.
As a result, Pathways will help businesses across the continent differentiate and compete on a global level and offer exceptional service to their customers.
Pathways Technologies Ltd is also keen on creating innovative solutions to help improve the quality of life in Africa by building solutions that advance financial inclusion, trade and climate change.
It also seeks to address unemployment by creating digital jobs for the youth.
To achieve this, Pathways Technologies has partnered with government institutions such as Konza Technopolis to source for job markets in Africa, the US and beyond, for our youth all to contribute to the reduction of the rate of unemployment in Kenya and the rest of Africa.
“Pathways brings the right skills, knowledge and experience required to support the digital transformation to help reshape business models, leverage data, technology and innovation for growth in these times of uncertainties,” Pathways Technologies Global Programs Director, Jed Summerton said.
The firm through its offerings intends to bring value to its customers by creating software solutions meant for Africa, and localizing technologies like Machine Learning and AI.
It seeks to do this by providing solutions to organizations that are struggling to recognize the full potential of their data and technology assets and those having trouble keeping up with the latest technology trends.
In addition, it addresses the challenge of the limited technology available to financial institutions to engage with their customers and the lack of digital skills in the market.
The firm leverages technology and data to simplify the connections between businesses and their customers by delivering innovative technology solutions for our clients, allowing them to achieve better outcomes.
