  • 2011-2012

    Our Humble Beginnings

    We developed, Uguard, a mobile app to address challenges of mobile & decentralized staff initially within the Security sector in Kenya, characterized by costly motorized supervision & paper based attendance recording.Uguard could not function without a supporting HR database to interface with; with support & feedback from our clients, we developed Upay to address this challenge.

  • 2013 - Todate

    Transition to Full Service

    With increasing diversity of our target clients, we renamed Uguard initially named with security guards in mind to Akida, a swahili name for supervisor. We began rolling it out Akida in one of our client's operations in Nigeria & later on to other countries including Ghana, Zambia, Tanzania, Uganda & the UK (Bournemouth).
