Vice President’s Working Visit to Hubtel

April 16, 2018 | 2 minutes read

What a special day. The Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia paid a working visit to our head office in Kokomlemle, Accra on Monday, March 26.

Our Chief Executive Officer, Alex Adjei Bram, took Dr. Bawumia through the services of the firm after a familiarization tour of the office.

In his conversation with the Vice President, Alex Bram explained that Hubtel’s solutions are designed to enhance merchants’ businesses by offering a single platform where payments, customer engagement, and loyalty are managed. He continued that “We basically started this company with GHC15 but today we have branches in Ghana and Kenya. Our first product was bulk SMS which helped to enhance the communication system of businesses.” Alex Bram also talked about ongoing work with the Ghana Police Service and the company’s newly launched Pledge to donate 1% of its products and profits to worthy causes.

Dr. Bawumia was impressed by the youthfulness of the team at Hubtel. He lauded the firm and assured management of government’s commitment to creating an enabling environment for indigenous IT firms to thrive. He said, “We are happy there is so much talent in Ghana. We as a government want to create the environment for businesses to thrive in education, revenue collection, data management, and more. We want to encourage and support you.”

We are honored to have been among the technology companies selected. We are humbled and remain committed to doing our part to support businesses of all sizes and ensure technology plays a useful part in improving customer service across the country.

Hubtel Introduces POS for Ghana Market; One Wallet to Accept All Payments

April 12, 2018 | 3 minutes read

As governments deepen their commitment to introduce citizens to a cashless economy, a key challenge to businesses and customers is the availability of affordable, convenient, and secure means of making cashless transactions. While some point-of-sale devices and cashless payment methods are available on the market, small and medium-sized businesses remain outpriced. Regular customers are largely unenthused in spite of the superior benefits of cash-lite transactions. The problem is exacerbated by different financial institutions offering different payment platforms. Mobile money services, run by telcos, remain unintegrated.

A contributing factor to this general disinterest in going cash-lite has been that existing technologies, mostly imported, do not satisfy the demands of the local market. Device costs, a requirement for internet connection in a market with unreliable connectivity, and concerns about security adversely affect customers’ appreciation and adoption of cashless platforms.

Hubtel POS is a solution designed with the necessities of developing economies like Ghana in mind. With Hubtel POS, all existing bank cards and mobile money wallets are integrated into one platform. This means businesses will be able to accept and process payments into one business wallet irrespective of the bank card or the mobile money wallet that the customer carries.

This streamlining of cashless payments means that businesses will no longer have to depend on multiple financial institutions for multiple point-of-sale devices, connected to different bank accounts. The barrier of customers unable to make payments for goods and services from mobile money wallets has been eliminated – it no longer matters which mobile money wallet a customer has, payments can be initiated easily from any phone.

With a single platform that processes payments from Visa, MasterCard, GHLink bank cards, and all mobile money wallets, Hubtel brings a keen understanding of the Ghanaian market to the industry. Hubtel offers businesses who sign up a free card reader to process bank card payments. On Hubtel POS, transactions for cash, card, and mobile money are instantly recorded; and customers receive free SMS receipts. Managers can sell and manage sales orders from their inventory. Hubtel POS also gives managers and business owners access to real-time reporting tools that help track sales and inform decision-making.

This introduction might just be the catalyst for the disruption that the market has been waiting for. The desire to bring innovative solutions to local business problems has once again introduced a product that understands the market it is intended for. This competent understanding of the market might just be what sets this new point of sale apart from what already exists. With businesses like KFC, Allied Oil, Compu Ghana, Equity Pharmacy and Jinlet Pharmacy and many others already using Hubtel POS, the market is lighting up for cashless transactions.
