      Field Agent

      PemPem was born out of years of in-depth field work in informal supply chains in multiple geographies; we observed a critical need to address inefficiencies and saw first-hand how technologies that performed well in the lab or in the city failed when brought to remote areas. We decided to change this. The stories and needs we hear, see, and live in the field inspire our technology, and our technology inspires a digital revolution in the field.
