Digital transformation company, Next Step Digital Solutions (NSDS), is set to showcase an innovative new fintech application, MyPaadna, in commemoration of its sixth anniversary this month.
The user-friendly app is a digital version of the traditional ‘Pawdna’ or ‘Susu’ savings system used in Jamaica and other Caribbean countries.
According to NSDS, MyPaadna is being positioned to help individuals as well as micro and small business owners monitor their shared savings objectives in real time with secure transaction features, instant notifications and group chats.
Mohan Beckford, chief visionary officer (CVO) at NSDS, said the company was forging ahead to optimise digital opportunities for businesses while increasing its growth prospects and continued success.
“We are happy to celebrate this milestone and will continue to steer businesses in the right direction as they [individuals and business owners] navigate the rapidly evolving digital landscape,” Beckford said.
The full-service digital agency was founded in 2017 by Beckford, a serial entrepreneur, and has serviced several small and medium-sized businesses in the manufacturing, e-commerce, medical and finance industries.
