Unleashing efficiency: Why fintech is the secret weapon for African supply chains

In a strategic move to cater to the evolving needs of businesses, Cardify Africa has introduced Cardify Business, a dedicated offshoot aimed at harnessing the startup’s innovative solutions for enterprises.

The focal point of this new venture is the Cardify digital business card, a tool designed to streamline and enhance professionals’ ability to share their information effortlessly.

At the recent launch event, the spotlight was firmly on the Cardify digital business card, which promises to usher in a paradigm shift in the way Nigerian professionals approach networking.

“This innovative digital card allows individuals to share their contact details with a simple tap or scan, eliminating the need for traditional business cards,” said Taiwo Idris, chief marketing officer at Cardify, underscoring the significance of this digital business card in simplifying and modernising the networking experience for professionals across various industries.

According to Idris, the Cardify business represents a strategic expansion for Cardify Africa, leveraging its proven expertise in digital solutions to meet the specific demands of the business landscape.

“With the introduction of the Cardify digital business card, the startup aims to empower professionals, fostering more efficient and seamless connections in the ever-evolving world of business networking.

Idris spoke at the Moonshot by TechCabal event held recently in Lagos. Moonshot, an exceptional tech conference, served as a unifying platform for Africa’s tech ecosystem, investors, and tech enthusiasts, offering two days of networking, collaboration, knowledge exchange, and a celebration of innovation across the African continent.

He pointed out that rather than carrying around a stack of physical business cards that often get lost or become unwieldy, individuals can now adopt the more efficient and eco-friendly Cardify Digital Business Card.

However, these digital business cards, available in PVC, bamboo, and metal, empower users to customize contact details, social media links, and other information through the Cardify Business suite. The real-time adaptability of the Cardify Digital Business Card eliminates the need for new prints, streamlining the networking process.

Aligning seamlessly with sustainability principles and convenience in the digital age, the Cardify digital business card is poised to become an indispensable tool for professionals in Nigeria. Scheduled for availability in stores and online markets in November, it represents a fresh and innovative approach to networking and information sharing.
