Innovative app revolutionising an industry
Innovative app revolutionising an industry

Every so often, a new development emerges that sets out to revolutionise a particular industry. In this instance, it is an app that is proving to be a game changer when it comes to combating fraud within the insurance industry. The LIVE Inspect app, which has been specifically tailored for insurance companies to perform a pre-inspection at policy initiation, is already winning awards for its innovation. On 14 August 2014, CustomApp, in partnership with Lightstone, walked away with two prestigious awards for the LIVE Inspect app at the MTN Business App of the Year Awards. The first award was for Best Android App - Enterprise, and the second award for App of the Year.

By now most of us have received an email that requires one to click on a link to update your banking details. Hopefully we are all aware that these are scams and that no South African bank will ask you to update any banking details via an email.

Banking the unbanked continent - with Paul Drawbridge

It's no longer new news that global brands are moving into Africa. African expansion is on the agenda of every major CEO and CMO, as the region continues to grow at a staggering rate and early movers lay the groundwork that makes the continent seem less risky. One industry that is about to be massively disrupted is financial services, says Paul Drawbridge, Yellowwood's business lead in Nairobi.

KPMG drives human and social services practice - KPMG South Africa
KPMG drives human and social services practice

Our country has experienced great changes since 1994. South Africa's social welfare system is one of the largest in the developing world, and has helped narrow the gap of income inequality, using world leading technological innovations. Social and cultural norms relating to violence against women and children are being challenged. The number of people living in formal homes, as opposed to informal settlements, has significantly increased. However, there is still a lot to do, and progress on many fronts will require all partners and stakeholders to take a long-term view, while being pragmatic in the short-term. The abilities of our institutions to manage change, build new capabilities, efficiently deliver programmes and services that meet the needs of citizens and communities, and drive economic growth will be key factors to our continued progress and success.
