Nkwazi Technologies was formed in 2018 by Chalwe Lubemba, Chinyimba Mando and Chunga Chewe while in their final year of varsity; the trio realized that despite Zambia’s rapid adoption of new technologies, there was still a significant gap between the general Zambian public and access to technology. They also noted that the market was brimming with untapped potential to offer tech-oriented products and services that people didn’t even know they needed.
With this in mind, they decided to establish a company that would not only promote technology to all types of businesses but also create custom software for businesses that did not conform to the conventional mould. As soon as the trio got the exams out of their way, they began the process of starting their company; after a bit of a brainstorming session, Chalwe came up with the Company’s Name, Nkwazi. The name, derived from the Nyanja language, means ‘Eagle.’
“I’m not much of a poet, but I’ve always loved the connotations of freedom and strength that are attached to the bird, and it is these qualities, the ability to adapt and go as far as necessary, that I hoped our small and young team would capitalize on”, said co-founder Chalwe.
The company’s focus is on creating customer-centric software that enhances customer experience. It aims to provide a single point of access to professional and quality services for web design, app and software development, and strategic consultancy. Nkwazi Technologies is run by a dynamic team of individuals who are at the forefront of technological innovation.
Nkwazi Technologies is strategically positioned between consumers who demand simple, quick, and safe options and businesses intent on meeting their client’s demands in the face of the next industrial revolution. The company aims to help businesses increase brand loyalty, lower operational costs, and meet consumer demands. The company offers custom-made software tailor-made to meet the needs of its clients, custom-made mobile iOS and Android apps, and custom websites to meet their business needs.
Nkwazi Technologies has provided services for businesses, government agencies and even private individuals; their offerings have been eclectic, from website creation and design to completely customized software.
The company’s mission is to partner with its customers by directing all its resources to bring their dreams to reality through innovative and customer-centric processes. Its vision is to be a leading provider of home-grown technological solutions, said co-founder Chunga Chewe.
One of the company’s main products and services includes the Tamanga Point of Sale, a complete system to manage inventory and assets, print receipts, receive payments, and meet regulatory obligations. Nkwazi Technologies also provides cash registers and modern till systems.
It is tailormade to fulfil our customer’s needs, and I believe the MPOS software is a significant step towards meeting that goal. Inventory management and record keeping are important aspects for most Zambian businesses, and we believe the Tamanga Software will be the flagship product that helps us achieve our goals,” said Chinyimba Mando, co-founder.
