NALA Demo Day, June 2023

Demo Day is a NALA tradition. It's a biweekly internal meeting where each team showcases what they've shipped, aligned to our company value of #GetItDone. Most importantly, it's where we hold ourselves accountable to you and ensure we're making impact.

NALA for Business - Enabling multi-user transaction controls

We’re always gathering feedback and looking for ways to improve. `One thing we heard from our Business users was the need for more control and transparency over payments.

So, we’ve Built some handy new features.  If your team has more than one user on NALA for Business, you will now see a toggle on the settings page, which, if turned on, requires all transactions to be approved by a manager or admin. 

We are working on the next phase of this feature, so stay tuned.

Understand unique user challenges

As we expand into new markets, we often uncover new challenges unique to a country or region. It's only by sitting down with people like you that we can fully unearth and understand our users’ pain points. 

So, #TheNALATeam recently spent some time in Greece, hanging out and hearing from some of our European users about what challenges they face when sending money to Africa. 

We hosted one of our famous NALA community meet-ups in Athens and were humbled by the welcome we received. 

Keep an eye out for more events and meet-ups around the globe soon.
