Building on numerous achievements in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), particularly in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), Qatar, and Kuwait, Infinite Business Solutions (IBS), a Jordanian-Emirati company headquartered in Dubai, has partnered with Centrika to introduce its iKiosk Solution in Rwanda – the company’s inaugural venture in Africa.

Centrika is a fintech and software development company, focused on improving technology solutions and human resources to deliver tomorrow’s solutions today.

The partnership marks a pivotal moment aligned with Jordan’s King Abdullah-II bin Al-Hussein’s working visit to Rwanda from January 7 to 9. The visit aimed at enhancing bilateral relations between the two nations.

The sessions held in Kigali proved that mutual collaborations in IT solutions, digital services, and innovation could benefit Rwanda’s tech ecosystem.

Centrika’s vision for a smart solution for transport and payment services aligns seamlessly with the custom-designed iKiosks that will be deployed across various locations in Kigali.

Willy Claude Karasira, Co-founder and Executive Director of Centrika, welcomed the partnership, stating, "We are excited to introduce our new iKiosks in Rwanda, which will revolutionise the way our customers handle transport tickets, sport and entertainment tickets, bill payments, government transactions through Irembo, remittance, among others.

“These multilingual kiosks will provide convenient and efficient self-service options, enhancing the overall customer experience.”
