MTN Uganda Launches FMCG Digital Suite for Cashless Supply Chain Solutions

MTN Uganda launches FMCG Digital Suite for cashless supply chain, benefiting businesses with real-time transactions.

MTN Uganda has introduced the FMCG Digital Suite, a mobile-based supply chain platform catering to Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) businesses. The platform enables real-time order placement, invoicing for deliveries, payments, and returns through MTN Mobile Money, eliminating the need for cash transactions in the supply chain. Developed by MTN MoMo, the new service automates product distribution and payment processes, promoting efficiency and cashless transactions within the FMCG ecosystem.

Sylvia Mulinge, CEO of MTN Uganda, highlighted the platform’s alignment with MTN’s Ambition 2025 Strategy, aiming to build Africa’s largest and most valuable platform business while driving digital transformation across industries. The FMCG Digital Suite aims to empower businesses, enhance operational efficiency, and enable cashless payments.

With businesses increasingly adopting digital solutions to combat supply chain challenges and expand market reach, the platform comes at a pivotal time. Projections indicate that half a billion people in Africa will be e-commerce users by 2025, and digital commerce could contribute $180 billion to the region’s GDP by the same year, mainly driven by mobile Internet expansion.

Richard Yego, MD at MTN Mobile Money Uganda Ltd, emphasized that the new platform will accelerate the adoption of digital mobile money payments while ensuring business safety during return transactions. Uganda Breweries Limited (UBL) Managing Director, Andrew Kilonzo, lauded the partnership with MTN Uganda, expressing excitement about the digitization journey that would deliver greater value to consumers and improve operational efficiency while mitigating cash-handling risks.

MTN Uganda is inviting FMCG businesses to explore the FMCG Digital Suite and embrace the transformative potential of digital solutions in their operations.
