"Upande is well known globally for their cutting edge technological solutions to common problems. They have seamlessly integrated map overlay data on schools, restaurants, banks into our Anza.co.ke real estate platform. Their world class standard is evident in all their work and they don't stop until they have delivered what was envisaged at the onset.
