More Than 20 Years Alongside The States And Organizations To Reverse The African Technological Break.

On July 05th, 1994, Interface opened its first offices to Douala in Cameroon, located street Yvy to Bonandjo, the big business district. The history begins in the lecture halls-theaters of the most prestigious business school of Central Africa, the ESSEC of Douala, where Nyamsi Martin the current Administrator and CEO of the Group Interface studied Marketing and Management of Companies...

The choice of this sector is not harmless, do not even less risky. Passionate about computing, Essec of Douala offers unfortunately only two possibilities to the numerous students who crowd in his doors: the Finance or the Marketing. It turns out exactly that the training in computing is more stressed in the Marketing sector or we already glimpsed the essential support in the commercial action. It is thus quite naturally that Nyamsi Martin turns to this sector, which offers him the opportunity to enrich and to deepen its knowledge in computing. Just like he will integrate, in the same launched, the IT club of Essec where he will not delay getting noticed.

In 1989, while he is registered in 3rd year, the young student concretizes the realization of a project on which he already works for some time: the development of a software of pay intended in SME Cameroonians.

Of Africa sub-Saharan and working beside the various States and the organizations to invert the technological fracture, ensure the know-how transmission and accelerate the appropriation by the African decision-makers of the modern management tools.
