IT Consortium Limited (ITC), Ghana’s leading FinTech company, has ranked 5th at the 2019 the Ghana Club 100 Awards, moving up nine places from the 14th position as a first-time entrant in 2018.

ITC also maintained its title as the number one Information Technology Company and making it the number FinTech company in Ghana.

A Wholly-Ghanaian-owned company and one of Africa’s leading financial services technology solutions providers, ITC has since 2001 developed various products and services geared towards financial inclusion and creating value for the end-user. The company has been powering the payments ecosystem through their TransFlow platform; digitizing the agricultural value chain through the mAgric platform; providing pensions for the unbanked with the My Own Pension platform, among others.

Romeo Bugyei, Managing Director of ITC, credited the company’s giant leap in the Ghana Club 100 to the hard work and dedication of the team.

“This also serves as a huge motivation to keep up our commitment of serving clients and providing solutions that truly work,” he added. “We pledge to continue pushing the limits of technology to create cutting-edge solutions for our customers.”

The award scheme is the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre’s (GIPC) annual compilation of the top 100 companies in Ghana and was instituted to give due recognition to successful enterprise building.

In February 2019, ITC attained ISO 27001 certification, making it the first FinTech in Ghana to earn this certification which helps in managing the internal risks by following world class processes to ensure quality product delivery. This, according to Mr. Bugyei, is indicative that the company aims to maintain its competitiveness by ensuring continuous improvement in the products they develop.

The company is currently in the final stages of churning out solution-oriented products such as a crowdfunding App to cater for fundraising needs on a massive scale, and a remittance product that provides value added services such as savings, investments, insurance and pensions for both the sender and receiver.
