InTouch is a pan-African fintech created in 2014 and specializing in the aggregation of payment methods and the integration of digital services. InTouch offers merchants a universal solution that allows them to accept all means of payment and offer a wide catalogue of services via a single device (smartphone, computer, etc.). The Touch platform is currently used in 10 countries, more than 500 Total stations, more than 25,000 independent outlets (multi-services, hair salons, pharmacy, neighborhood shops, etc.) and has more than 1000 BtB partners. The company employs nearly 200 people in 10 countries (Senegal, Mali, Burkina Faso, Kenya, Guinea Conakry, Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Morocco, Nigeria, South Africa). This expansion, which will continue with the opening of new countries, has democratized access to payment methods to a very low-banked African population while allowing merchants to grow their business through the additional revenues generated by the distribution of digital services.
