We are happy to announce that we received the great honor of being awarded the best software development company in Tanzania during the 5th Annual ICT Conference by the Tanzania ICT Commission. As far as our country’s history is concerned there has never been a local award for “Best software development company in Tanzania”, until this year when the Tanzania ICT Commission launched the ICT  Awards in Tanzania as part of early initiatives of the newly formed Ministry of Communication, Science and Technology led by Hon. Dr. Ashatu Kijaji to fast-track the involvement of ICT in social-economic growth.
