mNotify, a startup specialising in mobile applications and bulk SMS notification services, is shifting its focus and now centering on customising some of its offerings for the corporate firms.
The startups Bulk SMS notification services, mNotify Students Alert and mNotify Messaging were previously used by students in learning institutions. The developer firm now confirms it is in its final stages of launching two new SMS notification apps including mNotify Meeting and mNotify Ordering — wholly developed for use by corporate firms.
Amefia Godwin and Ronald Tagoe, both undergraduate computer science students of Ghana’s Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, founded the firm that is currently managed with the help of mFriday, a mobile Web lab.
Speaking to HumanIPO, Amefia said mNotify as a company has four SMS-based Products: the mNotify Students Alert, the mNotify Messaging, the mNotify Meeting and the mNotify Ordering App.
The firm began mNotify Student Alert as their first project and piloted it between November and December last year.
Amefia says by the end of the pilot phase, 1380 students at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology had signed up for the service.
Now in operation for over a year and legally registered with over 50 active corporate clients, mNotify is looking to sign up many corporate clients.
“We are scaling our products and taking our applications and products to help firm’s maintain an effective communication downstream and upstream with their customers and suppliers respectively. The mNotify student alert will have more higher educational institutions in Africa. We look at taking this product continental,” Amefia said.
Though the meeting and ordering apps are yet to be made available to the public, the founders say firms have shown great interest in their business-to-business and business-to-consumers communication services.
According to the founders, they were inspired by the need for an affordable and efficient channel to allow customers to talk to their service providers to give feedback as well as enable the firms to talk back to their customers after the feedback.
