Accra, September 2, 2018 – Esoko, a pioneering technology company in Africa has yet again deepened its innovative credentials as trail blazers within the technological space. The company attained this feat after it officially launched Insyt, a web and mobile based data management platform built for collecting accurate data devoid of errors, exorbitant cost and long hours associated with cumbersome paper work.
Insyt helps organizations and individuals convert from inefficient paper-based data collection methods, providing a comprehensive digital solution for data collection and analysis. According to the Confederation of European Paper Industries (CEPI), the global consumption of paper continues to skyrocket annually. In 2016, it is estimated paper consumption in 2016 increased to over four hundred and thirteen (413) million metric tons from the three hundred and ninety-three (393) million metric tons recorded in 2008.
Addressing guests and patrons at the official launch of Insyt in Accra, the Chief Executive Officer of Esoko, Dr. Daniel Asare-Kyei was optimistic Insyt will be the game changer for hassle free, accurate and real-time data collection for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises, governments, projects and individuals – enabling decision makers make smart and relevant data driven decisions. He further noted that organizations all over the African continent have used Esoko’s range of web and mobile solutions for the collection and dissemination of data and information on projects, people and markets via smartphone, web, tablet, SMS and voice SMS.
The Insyt platform, which enables data collection with or without an internet connection, has chalked some successes after it was tried and tested in Ghana with the profiling of three hundred thousand (300,000) households under the Livelihood Empowerment Against Poverty (LEAP) project. The Ghana National Household Registry (GNHR) scheme which surveyed one hundred and twenty thousand (120,000) households was made possible with Insyt where the biographic and biometric data of individuals were collected.
In partnership with Esoko, the Ghana Government was also able to collect biometric and spatial data of two hundred thousand (200,000) farmers for the execution of the Planting for Food and Jobs Programme, using the Insyt app.
Lauding Esoko for the enviable initiative, Deputy Director of Policy and Planning at the Ministry of Communications, Dr. Desmond Boateng posited that the development of Insyt identified with government’s digitization drive. Dr. Boateng again expressed government’s commitment in partnering with the private sector and urged business owners to sign onto Insyt and experience excellent data management.
