SlimTrader is the first platform in Africa that allows consumers to purchase services or shop for goods with their mobile devices. This is
especially valuable given the slow and erratic internet access on the continent, which leaves residents with the sole option of traveling
and waiting in line to conduct potentially simple transactions. SlimTrader created the first Mobile web and SMS ticketing platform in Africa
for Aero Airlines, a leading West African Airline.
