DFS Africa launches the Connecting the Dots Initiative (CDI) with its consortium
of partners, as an immediate response to the COVID-19 pandemic.



CDI Background


Real-Time Dashboard

Explore each category of product through a real-time dashboard that informs both the supplier and the buyer about the number of products that are available on the platform. The dashboard automatically recalibrates itself after every purchase to provide users with real-time information on availability of products.

Trend Analysis

Procuring institutions find the trend analysis feature of the CDI so compelling because it forecast both demand and supply of COVID-19 essential products. This feature helps the manufacturer to forecast production volumes, while the feature helps the buyer to secure products at optimized prices.

Supply Aggregation Platform

CDI is a supply aggregation platform. This platform consolidates all supplier and manufacturer information across the continent for each product. This ensures that all buyers/offtakers who purchase essential medical supplies through the platform will procure at an optimised price, no matter the quantity of your purchase.
