Field Intelligence, a Healthtech startup, has today announced its expansion into 11 cities in Nigeria and Kenya.

The expansion is aimed at building on Field Intelligence’s existing 700+ pharmacy membership, which has served over 1.4 million patients already to accelerate quality frontline healthcare across the African continent.

The 11 cities include Rivers, Edo, Kaduna, Kano, Enugu, Delta, and Kwara States in Nigeria, and Eldoret, Mombasa, Kisumu, and Naivasha in Kenya.

Founded in 2015, the startup was initially focused on solving supply chain issues in Nigeria’s capital city but co-founder and CEO, Michael Moreland found out that privately run pharmacies faced the same challenges.

To address that problem, Field Intelligence moved from being a software company to a tech-enabled pharmaceutical distributor launching Shelf Life in 2017 for that purpose. In August 2018, Shelf Life launched in Nairobi, Kenya.

Speaking on the expansion, Moreland revealed that “Shelf Life’s rapid uptake across such a range of African markets is a testament to its potential as a solution for pharmacies across the continent.

“Rural and urban, East and West, we have found Shelf Life helping pharmacies overcome a shared set of challenges and seize new opportunities for growth by improving access for their patients. The ability of our technology to digitize, automate, and optimize planning, assortment, and fulfillment, led by an incredible team, is quickly making Shelf Life one of the largest retail pharmacy supply chains in Africa.”

According to the startup, Shelf Life is currently being used by more than 700 pharmacies in Nigeria and Kenya but aims to cover over 20,000 drugstores and pharmacies in Nigeria and Kenya. By 2022, it aims to have at least 2000 pharmacies and drugstores using Shelf Life and 12,000 by 2025.
