Softcom is a thinking company on a mission to connect people and businesses with meaningful innovation, at scale. We are human-centred in our approach to problem solving and currently focused on solving problems in 4 foundational areas that enable people and businesses thrive and would open society to improvement, particularly in sub-Saharan African. The four areas are Identity, Learning, Payments and Data.

We have engineered products that are addressing the problems in these areas while our research lab, MoonShot, is focused on continuous innovation to improve the products and engineer new ones within these segments. Our products are PassID (identity), Koya (Learning), Eyowo (Payment) and DataBeaver (Data).

All our products are built towards improving people and business operations in Africa; we always strive to build solutions and technology that will ultimately positively impact the lives of people. With our industry expertise across several sectors, we aim to continually deliver transformational value to people, businesses, and our clients, enabling all-round societal impact.
