Red Skies Technology is a small company started recently and our focus at the moment is the development of a satellite based service targeting developing countries. The service will give these markets ability to manage and regain control of the urban transport sector of their economies. The urban transport sector in most developing countries especially in Africa is mostly un regulated and run by informal operators. The governments get little to no tax-revenues at all in most places because they are not able to enforce an form of regulation into this section of their economies.
The product currently being developed by Red Skies will enable the provision of a service to manage informal urban transporters by providing technology to restrict their operations to only their licensed routes and more importantly by providing a travelcard system that is expected to fit into the seemingly unordered and random ecosystem of third world cities’ informal transport sector.
