About Us

Digital technology solutions for productivity in Africa
 

Purpose

Mezzanine is a digital technology company that co-creates digital solutions that enable productive societies.

Where we started

Since 2012 Mezzanine has designed and built digital technology solutions for customers in the agricultural and healthcare spaces across Africa. As a South African-based company and a member of the Vodacom group, Mezzanine works with mobile network operators to bring about positive change in the lives of people through the benefits of the digital dividend.

We use our shared services platform to develop cost-effective and scalable solutions for governments, development agencies, multinationals and private businesses in South Africa, Ghana, Nigeria, Mozambique, Zambia, Kenya and Tanzania. Today, Mezzanine manages over 25 active projects across these countries and is currently working with governments in Ethiopia and Uganda to increase digital benefit to last mile users in those nations.

The company has market-leading expertise in the agricultural, health, humanitarian relief, social services, financial inclusion and education spaces. Mezzanine has worked with multiple partners and knowledge experts because their managed solutions are designed to be partner- agnostic and can therefore be deployed by any accredited mobile network service-provider.

Mezzanine has experience in operating within highly complex ecosystems and has developed relationships and expertise across multiple points in the platform economics value-chain in order to deliver solutions that work for people with the lowest access to all that technology has to offer.

Mezzanine works with mobile network operators to bring about positive change in the lives of people through the benefits of the digital dividend.

Helium is Mezzanine’s proprietary server and hosting environment that guarantees high levels of data security and integration.

Our approach to the development of digital solutions is to co-create them with customers and host them on our Helium platform. Helium is our proprietary server and hosting environment that guarantees high levels of data security and integration with any mobile network operator and chosen method of communication. It is operated in South Africa and provides round-the-clock tech support with highly skilled engineers that ensure constant up time. Helium safeguards the data that we collect on behalf of our customers and guarantees that it is protected.

In 2019, two of our digital technology solutions were recognised by Fortune magazine on its Change the World list of 52 companies around the globe that are driving measurable and positive change. These were LEAP, in partnership with Accenture, and the Stock Visibility Solution (SVS), in partnership with Vodacom Business.

Our Solutions

Mezzanine offers a range of innovative digital managed solutions that have been designed and developed on our modular middleware platform, Helium, by our in-house product teams.

Health & Social Innovation

Health is where Mezzanine started. Our products create networked service delivery platforms with a focus on last mile linkage to care, and efficient supply chain and pathology management. Our health products are internationally renowned and recognised as solutions that change the world.

Agriculture

Mezzanine offers comprehensive solutions for agribusiness to interact and transact with smallholder farmers in Africa. We can proudly claim that we have helped stamp out corruption in the dairy industry and fundamentally improved the yields of farmers in the Macadamia Nut industry.

Education

Education decision-makers can view real-time data from schools in their area. Whether it be incident reporting or ensuring school textbooks make it to class on-time, our digital solutions connect schools to facilitate an ecosystem of support.

Asset & Financial

Assets and financial disbursements require strict controls to manage in an accountable and transparent way. By using our digital solutions, customers can monitor and get the most out of their assets, as well as digitally disburse money regularly to large bases of unbanked beneficiaries.
