Smart Cities

Smart City Digital Solutions gather data from various Internet of Things (IoT) devices and propose actions to manage assets, resources and services efficiently. With this in mind, we developed digital solutions with local tech companies to transform cities into smart cities.

E-Health

Over the past couple of years digital solutions have penetrated all kinds of areas and also the medical sector. Hence, the DigiCenter has supported the Rwandan Government in implementing a solution to digitize the supply chain of blood bags.

Smart Agriculture

With the changing climate, farmers are confrontated with changing conditions and need to adjust from tradional farming to new approaches. Therefore, digital solutions are key to address this challenge and to support sustainable agriculture as well as to ensure food security.
