WHO WE ARE

iDT Labs, headquartered in Sierra Leone, is an ICT company with a focus on envisioning, designing and implementing technology solutions for development in West Africa. Since 2013, we have been delivering high quality and customized ICT solutions for governments, organizations and businesses wanting to tackle social, developmental, and economic challenges.

OUR CORE COMPETENCIES

1. FINANCIAL TECHNOLOGIES THOUGHT LEADERSHIP

  • We are the strategic knowledge and technology partners to commercial banks, community banks, and micro-finance institutions, providing core banking systems, mobile financial services, digital payments facilitation, payroll management and other value-added services to these institutions.

  • We work with the Sierra Leone Microfinance Association to migrate MFIs to an open source loan management system

  • We advise and help implement financial inclusion strategies for traditional financial institutions who are interested in providing access to the financially excluded.

  • We were the guest panelists at the 2016 Malaysia World Bank Symposium on Payments & Remittances

  • Our work in creating a payroll processing and biometric verification for Ebola Response Workers has been featured as a Best Case Practice for an innovative implementation of financial inclusion during a disaster by the Better than Cash Alliance (BTCA). Read the full report here.

  • We are currently serving as the chair and as major sponsors of the Sierra Leone Fintech Association

  • During the Ebola outbreak in 2014, we mobilized a team of 35 mobile verification officers for carrying out biometric registration and payment distribution to 30,000 health workers. View the complete project here

2. DATA COLLECTION AT SCALE

3. CLOUD COMPUTING

  • We find ourselves at the fore-front of helping West African governments realize the economies of scale, vendor independence, future proofing and tremendous cost savings that adopting cloud computing and open source technology results in.

  • We have helped deploy government payments systems, judiciary case management systems, and large scale document management solutions to the cloud.

  • We developed and operate a cloud based SaaS platform to help West African small and medium sized enterprises enjoy the efficiencies of automating but avoid the costs and pitfalls of off-the-shelf proprietary systems. Learn more
