All Public Holidays in Ghana 2021
- 18 January, 2021
- Tips and Advice
We have all enjoyed the fireworks, countdowns, and some used this holiday season to observe religious traditions and crossover services….
The Ghanaian landscape seems to be changing at a relatively fast pace thanks in part to technology.
Technology has impacted our lives in various ways: some being the way we communicate, the way we travel and even the way we buy goods and services.
Think of the time you had to rely on letters as the only means of communicating. These days, mobile services in the telecommunications sector enable one to easily reach anyone from all over the world.
This was even further enhanced with the Internet. The innovation has truly impacted the lives of billions across the globe. People can: shop, chat, work, hold meetings and even watch their favorite television programs on the Internet.
It is then no surprise that a growing number of individuals, governments and corporate entities are turning to this form of technology as a means to carry out their objectives.
Ventures such as Jumia House, Kaymu and Jumia have all turned to the Internet as a platform to meet needs of customers in Ghana and beyond. Property management in Ghana has been quite cumbersome and the innovation by De Graft Management Ltd (DGM) is seen as a boost to the real estate sector.
Established about four years ago in the UK, De Graft Management has spread its technological tentacles to Africa, Ghana for that matter. The company envisions a continent where property developers would rely on software and the Internet to aid them in managing properties.
For any real estate developer or agent, the challenge of: using outdated filing systems, storage space, sharing information, retrieving and updating data, among others, are impediments to the productivity of their business.
DGM, which offers cloud-based software, enables clients to access their information on the go, anywhere in the world. The software, which acts as a form of organizing tool, ensures that data input is readily accessible and presented in the most user-friendly form for those who may not have a strong IT background.
The property management software, which is Internet based, requires no hardware or additional software.
The best part is, the company has acknowledged the differences in style and preference by each developer, hence, making room for customization if need be.
According to the CEO of DGM, Lena Rosenior, the software has been designed primarily for real estate companies and there are plans underway to incorporate State Housing Company and other government agencies to aid in the quest towards affordable housing.
Contractors looking to keep track of their inventory and supply can also benefit immensely from this software.
As Ghana’s economy continues to grow, technology will be needed to accelerate its development and to ensure that the nation attains the status of enviable success.
DGM and Jumia House, for that matter, seem to be the trend setters in assisting real estate developers with technological tools that would aid them in their quest to satisfy customer requirements.
