What we do for our users: Uliza allows millions of people who cannot access the Internet because of constraints in: - Language: 80 percent of recorded information is in English - Literacy: In East Africa alone there are over 14 million people who have no education - Technology: Computer and smartphone ownership and 3G or higher network coverage - Cost of Data: For the bottom quarter of the world, cost of data can be as high as a quarter of GDP per capita per day
All they need to do is call Uliza from any kind of phone, ask whatever question they want, in whatever language they speak, and we will provide them with an answer.
We do this by combining Interactive Voice Response platforms with a distributed network.
What we do for our business clients: - Use our platform to communicate with your people at scale, without needing a call-center - Answer customers' phone calls by email - Get transcriptions and translations in most languages - Conduct phone surveys in remote communities
Uliza means "ask" in Kiswahili, the language of over 100 million people in East Africa.
