QUIDGEST’S PRODUCTS WHICH SUPPORT THIS SDG

LOAN MANAGEMENT

Enabling microfinancing in developing countries and ensuring everyone has the needed resources to sustain their household or build a new successful venture was at the core of the Loan Management development. The system is inspired by how fintech startups changed the financial sector and is designed with a client-centric approach.

Even though the product has all the features and legal requirements of being used in developed economies, its potential is better leveraged in societies where the resources are scarce since it automatizes most of the mandatory processes and reduces the response times, swiftly conceding credit to the ones in need.

From the financial organization POV, Loan Management also has its advantages: it reduces operative costs, makes sure the organization is compliant with the legislation, and identifies, measures, keeps track and controls the portfolio’s exposure.

Potential Impact of this Product on the 9th SDG

9.1 Develop quality, reliable, sustainable and resilient infrastructure, including regional and transborder infrastructure, to support economic development and human well-being, with a focus on affordable and equitable access for all;

9.4 By 2030, upgrade infrastructure and retrofit industries to make them sustainable, with increased resource-use efficiency and greater adoption of clean and environmentally sound technologies and industrial processes, with all countries taking action in accordance with their respective capabilities.

PUBLIC BUDGETING AND EXPENDITURE TRANSPARENCY

According to the OECD, in 2019, less than half of people (45%) trusted their governments. The disbelief in administrations compromises citizens and business fabric’s willingness to respond to public policies and contribute to a sustainable economic recovery.

Although there is no quick recipe that will dramatically boost this percentage, there is an important characteristic that can help regain public trust: increasing the transparency of a government’s operation, especially regarding the public money’s budgeting and expenditure.

That is Quidgest’s proposal with the Public Budgeting and Expenditure Transparency system. Besides budgeting and expenditure, the tool includes financial controls, accounting, financial reporting, internal and external auditing, and actions taken on audited accounts. Public trust is not something to overlook. It is the foundation upon which public institutions’ legitimacy is built and crucial for maintaining social cohesion and attracting investors.

This solution is also helping to fulfill the following Goals:

PUBLIC FINANCE SHARED SERVICES

Given the multiple variables at stake, having a holistic view of a country’s revenue/tax collection and expenditures can be challenging. However, not having a vision of the balance can be a more demanding challenge for decision-makers. Quidgest’s approach on this subject is complex but simple to understand: centralize all the information in a single platform by providing common ground corporate services.

Individual departments usually carried out something that is now done a single time, reducing unnecessary duplication of effort, harmonizing policies, and consolidating relevant data under a single umbrella platform. Transparency, international credibility, and better resource management are some of the benefits of Quidgest’s Public Finance Shared Services solution.

PUBLIC FLEET MANAGEMENT SHARED SERVICES

The solution is able to track the fleet, manage operational costs as well as managing the security of the driver and its load, and monitoring the service provided based on personalized Key Performance Indicators.
