The Converge Solutions Themis team recently won a Startupbootcamp hackathon challenge!
The Hackathon was hosted by UK South Africa Tech Hub and Afritech, with sponsors including SALGA, AWS, Silicon Cape Initiative, Silicon Overdrive, MTN, Ayoba and Cartel Connect.
The team was solving real-life problems from a procurement perspective in a public sector scenario, including KYC (Know your Customer), fraud monitoring, and solutions, which included rapid on-boarding of suppliers in a Covid-19 environment.
We entered in Challenge 5: Technology to open up procurement capability by the public sector to allow for rapid onboarding of new suppliers and SMMEs.
Congratulations to the other category winners.
Subsequently, a number of private and public entities have already shown an interest in deploying our offering, which is 100% production ready and able to introduce a higher level of compliance and governance into any procurement process.
