Been a long time since we gave an update on Chamasoft. The project has been going on very well and we are grateful to all our users for using the application, testing it out, reaching out to us through emails, calls, and chatting with us

Here are a few developments that have happened so far

Software Updates

Early this year, we began working on Chamasoft Enterprise. We released the software on 22nd April this year. The software allows for banks and other third-party institutions to integrate into the Chamasoft platform enabling chamas and other users of our software to do straight-to-bank transactions allowing complete automation of record keeping. At the moment we are piloting with one bank and we hope to bring on board other banks before the end of the year. This will really enhance your chamasoft experience

We would like to get feedback from your end on what other integrations you desire

New Features

We are working on newer features and enhancing the existing application. Keep the communication coming so we can develop for you a great tool to use

We look forward to your valued feedback
