The recently launched Nandi Digital Marketplace has registered its initial success in spurring the digital economy in our county which has generated interest for partnership from players within and outside the County. Today the County received a delegation from the County Government of Kakamega who are on a mission to Benchmark on Nandi Digital MarketPlace.
County Government through the Department of Trade, Tourism, industrialization, and Enterprise Development, developed a business-to-business digital marketplace that helps farmers to sell their products directly to consumers to enjoy 100% profit and avoid exploitation from brokers.
Speaking during the engagement the Chief Officer for ICT and E-Government Jonathan Misoi said that the digital market has bridged the gap between traditional markets and the digital economy and it has also allowed local businesses to thrive in the online marketplace. He also encouraged the officials from Kakamega to join the Global Open Governance Partnership to automate service delivery in their backyard which will greatly improve performance within the county.
While going through the developed systems, Kakamega County Chief Officer for Cooperative Development Emmanuel Kariuki, lauded Nandi County on its commitment to automate their services, he said that they are looking forward to execute the same strategies in their County.
Nandi has managed to automate the following services County Call Centre, Nandi County Digital Marketplace, Digifarm and Gigicow, Asset and inventory system, County Monitoring and Evaluation System (CMES, and Nandi County Data Desk among others.
Present at the meeting were Trade, Tourism, Industrialization, and Enterprise Development Chief Officer Benjamin Kiprotich, Kakamega County ICT and E-Government Chief Officer Phanuel Musasia, Cart ‘n’ Shop Director Joseph Wambugu, and Digital Market Technical Officers amongst others.
