One of the challenges Qwicart has come across is with Supermarkets. They lack effective inventory management systems that can harness digital solutions for better optimisation. They are also working on successfully on-boarding every supermarket across the country while also strategically exploring entry into other markets.

With a team of almost 20 people, Qwicart is building a business that will provide lasting solutions both from a convenience perspective but also community transforming. Remember to download the app her for either Android or iOS
