KCB Foundation and Kenya Veterinary Association pick RippleNami to deliver livestock traceability program
Kenya Commercial Bank Foundation and Kenya Veterinary Association has selected RippleNami, Inc., a provider or blockchain map-based visualization platform to deliver the country's first livestock identification and traceability program.
De organisationer anerkender rollen som teknologi i implementering av programmer for å øke landsomfattende inntekter i landet, især for husdyrsektoren, som er domineret af små producenter.
RippleNami redefines mapping with the first blockchain visualization platform that consolidates big data into actionable insights that can affect positive change for the region.
With real-time livestock tracking, the RippleNami rWaves application will provide the platform for an effective national reporting system and enable programs for the prevention and control of livestock diseases.
Leveraging RipleNami’s cutting edge technology, KCB Foundation and the Kenya Veterinary Association are leading the African livestock industry to improve traditional RFID livestock tagging practices to track livestock movement and to quickly identify disease issues.
“The ability to geographically visualize the registration of individual animals, farms, holdings, premises and herds enables us to identify risk areas, create disease free zones and to assure livestock traceability for trade and food safety. And the collateralization of livestock assets will enable farmers to achieve higher prices for their livestock and to secure loans for continued growth,” said Dr. Kahariri Samuel, National Chairman of Kenya Veterinary Association. “RippleNami and KCB Foundation share our commitment to bringing the private and public veterinary services together to offer intuitive methods to visualize data, identify patterns quickly that lead to actionable plans.”
“We are honored to see our game-changing platform adopted by innovative organizations like Kenya Veterinary Association and KCB Foundation,” stated Phil Gahn, chief business development officer and founder of RippleNami. “Because the rWaves real-time mapping application is completely self-service, any organization can quickly visualize and track all their sensitive data assets on any map within days of an installation. By combining advanced intuitive visualization of big data with sophisticated cloud-based, blockchain technology, organizations are leveraging RippleNami’s advanced technology to instantly visualize important geo-assets, create new economic transactional exchanges and provide a uniform data repository platform for an emerging country’s electronic data infrastructure."
