A note from the CEO

We’re on a mission to power commerce across the continent. Duplo makes it easier for African businesses to manage their financial operations by providing digital tools that enable more efficient, cost-effective, and transparent payment and reporting processes. We’ve built an industry-agnostic product that completely automates the back-office processes of generating and processing invoices, receiving and approving bills, collecting and disbursing funds, managing expenses, and completing account reconciliation.

For me, Duplo means simplified efforts!
Before Duplo, we had a long list of processes and procedures in making payouts to our beneficiaries but on Duplo, where you are, anywhere you are, you are able to do that with little effort. Duplo has been a very big plus to us.

Compared to other payment platforms I’ve used in the past, using Duplo’s dashboard has been a seamless experience. I like the flexibility it gives me in terms of adding my staff to our approval workflows and limiting their payment threshold. Setting up the approval workflow took about 30 minutes in total and the Duplo customer success team was available every step of the way.

Duplo is a breath of fresh air. We spend less man hours attending to customer complaints. We have also seen an increase in the number of clients that pay in advance for our services thanks to Duplo’s Collection products. It’s been really good for us to be honest.
