This already represents a victory for Papersoft Team, since the Challenge begun with more than 600 applicants. It definitely proves the quality, commitment and innovation of Papersoft’s work.

How it all started

Ecobank created a category in the 2020 edition for products aimed at pandemic and quarantine challenges. Papersoft decided to develop an innovative Digital Branch solution that allows banks to continue their operations on digital channels, even with KYC biometrics requirements for services subscriptions.

That is how the HiDesk platform came to life, a software for front-office and customer service functions that helps banks to serve all their customers, as an alternative to the branch network or agent network.

In this last phase, the 10 finalists, from 7 different countries, “will be enrolled into Ecobank’s Fintech Fellowship where they will spend the next 6 months exploring partnership opportunities”.

Eddy Ogbogu, Group Executive, Operations & Technology left some motivational words for the finalists:

“We congratulate the 10 Fintechs that have made it to the 2020 Finals. This is an impressive cast of innovators and we look forward to the Final event where we will honor them and potentially build productive collaborations. ”

Ecobank is a pan-African institution present in 33 countries, which represents an amazing opportunity for Papersoft to access new markets and create new products.
