Project Summary

December 2018 was a tough but productive month for ERS in Timor-Leste. After running autonomously since February our initial goal was to meet with our existing customers to gain feedback and get them to resign their contracts. The three BagPay customers gained in July - ProEma, Osteria and Samuana - have all since stopped their service. Osteria are likely to re-sign as a second chance for ERS so BagPay still seems like a viable option for smaller businesses. We did manage however to sign on...

Work Update

In the month of January, the ERS Timor-Leste team looked into expanding and analyzing new avenues for potential customers. It was vital that ERS established a strong client base to begin with, in previous months and this was successfully done by targeting expat business owners, who owned restaurants and hotels in and around the Dili area. While it is important to primarily target these types of businesses, ERS Timor is currently at a stage where it could branch out into various other...
