Weza Tele Ltd is a leading provider of innovative value added mobility solutions in commerce, supply chain, distribution, and mobile payment integration. We have broad experience in developing and supporting solutions in several countries across Africa including Kenya, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Nigeria.

Odoo is a global company that focuses on open source business apps that extend beyond core ERP to boost sales, marketing, employee and company productivity.

Today Weza Tele is glad to announce a partnership with Odoo. Weza Tele has integrated its mobility and supply chain visibility tool,  MyOrder Enterprise with Odoo application suite. We believe that this strategic partnership will go a long way to ensure that we are not only empowering the small and medium businesses across Africa with mobility tools and services, but also providing a wider variety of enterprise applications to ensure business growth and scalability.

According to past reports, an average of 85% of the small and medium businesses across East Africa have no visibility of their end to end business processes. They rely on manual and traditional processes to track their orders, sales, payments, stock, customers and operations. Weza Tele is working to change this by providing relevant enterprise applications to SMEs in the East African market.

Small and medium businesses can now have a very simple and affordable ERP that integrates seamlessly with cross platform mobility tools including mobile payments such as M-Pesa, Android sales tools among others.

Weza Tele continues to empower small retailers with visibility services and solutions for their businesses

Stock Card 5-01

In a bid to empower distributors and small business owners,  Weza Tele has recently released another value add service dubbed the “Weza Stock card”. This service offers a structured model designed to help retailers and small businesses keep track of their stock on a daily ,weekly and monthly basis. In addition, Weza Tele will help these small retailers analyze their profitability and trends of their products/brand performance in order to boost their growth and scalability.

These small retailers and businesses have no defined processes to manage their stock, sales and day to day distribution.Furthermore, they easily lose the data they had recorded in the exercise books they use since they may get lost,stolen or damaged.

Currently Weza Tele has started to explore a pilot with small retail shops across Nairobi. In the process we are building a database of retailers and distributors in the fast moving consumer goods with a vision to give them an opportunity to collaborate, trade, get exposure and discover innovative solutions and services to manage their businesses more efficiently, gain visibility and scale effectively.

 So far from the few retailers using our stock management services, are appreciative and giving positive responses:

“I have not been recording my stocks or sales since I opened my kiosk in the last 3 years. I don’t know how my small business is performing and sometimes its hard for me to know  my business profits since I don’t have any records. But with Weza Tele services, I am now well informed about my business performance” says Anita, a kiosk owner.


Weza Tele has also taken the initiative to train the retailers and distributors on the use of the stock card service and how to better manage their businesses and distributors/suppliers relationships. The goal is to ensure that these small retailers and business owners are accustomed to the structured processes and we will eventually automate the services using simple and affordable tools.
