About N-Frnds

Our mission is to unlock the opportunities of SaaS for Emerging Markets.

What we do

Huge potential value is lost in Emerging Markets due to the inability of enterprises and governments to reach and engage the billions of people and businesses who have no online connectivity.

N-Frnds unlocks these opportunities with a unique and powerful cloud-based SaaS platform that can be reached from any device. Even without mobile data.
Our platform provides a comprehensive range of collaborative SaaS solutions through which organizations can improve engagement with all their stakeholders and streamline processes all the way down their supply chain.
This enables more services, broader collaboration and ultimately more value.

For everyone.
