A recent market survey conducted by the SEEP Network identifies 21 technologies used by Savings Groups and the development and market actors that engage with them. These tools include management information systems, mobile applications, information and communications technology, and other audio-visual tools to train and monitor Savings Groups, support and enhance group operations, train and monitor trainers, and deliver complementary financial and non-financial services.
Collectively, these tools have the potential to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of group mobilization and training, the quality of Savings Group operations, and access to information and complementary services by Savings Groups. However, uptake remains low: information about available offerings is not easily accessible to potential users; the ability of technology service providers to reach potential users is limited; and a lack of understanding of the potential benefits, requirements and risks associated with specific technologies restricts their effective adoption.
The SEEP Network invites you to this post SG2018 Conference event with technology service providers to learn about existing products and services targeted to Savings Group stakeholders. Exhibitors will include technology firms, mobile network operators, financial service providers, consulting firms, and non-governmental organizations. Targeted participants include Savings Group stakeholders that are exploring the acquisition of tools to enhance group training and monitoring, staff training and monitoring, and the delivery of complementary services to Savings Groups.
The agenda for the Technology Fair includes an introduction to the SEEP Network’s SG Technology Catalog, a presentation from each exhibitor, and access to a marketplace with product demonstrations and user testing.
Hosted by the SEEP Network in partnership with FSD Africa
