This month we got down in the trenches with JabJab Group to find out a little bit more about who they are and what they’re doing.
The folks at JabJab specialize in building and generating next generation platforms and business models, in order to remove friction across the value chain. We dug a little bit deeper on how their disruptive technology is changing Kenya and it’s importance for the future.
JabJab means inspiration and happiness, we deliver the ultimate experience of using disruptive technologies to enable businesses to automate and secure their IT networks.
Our inspiration for forming JabJab came from knowing that the businesses in Kenya are not getting value for money for their investments in the technology arena. What’s more, we saw huge gaps in the market in the areas of Cyber Security.
Businesses in Kenya didn’t understand the value of securing their IT networks, corporate data and meet compliance requirements. We wanted to set high benchmarks for delivering the best possible solutions that solve long term business problems for customers. As such, JabJab has three lines of business – Technology Services, E-Commerce Platforms & Blockchain Platforms.
Our greatest achievement so far has been to opening the minds of customers to new disruptive technologies for their businesses. Helping them deliver revenue growth and productivity, secure data and lower operational costs has been amazing. We’re extremely blessed to see that the customers appreciate our innovative approach to research and we simply love to deliver promising technology solutions for their businesses.
There are a few innovations we have brought to the market in Kenya & East Africa. Firstly, our cyber security offerings are completely unique, and provide businesses a way to secure their corporate networks internally and on the cloud.
Our recent offering of aggregating and bonding internet bandwidth from different Internet Service Providers (ISPs) has been a huge hit in the market. Customers can now have full redundancy on their internet links using shared/fixed broadband technology rather than the legacy technologies like MPLS which are very expensive.
We are also launching the first hybrid Cloud NAS Storage and Backup solution for the SME’s in East Africa, this will provide customers the ability to store and share data on the cloud whilst accessing it locally on their corporate networks.
It’s simple: if you want to exceed, “experiment, experiment, experiment”. A startup shouldn’t ever stop trying to learn and grow. You’re product or service needs to solve problems that uniquely challenge the status quo.
Your business model always need to be fluid and change with the demands of the environment you are working in. Once your solution is accepted in the market, you can find the right pivot to focus on the growth and scale of the business.
