Kokamba, developed by AYOKAI, is an ERP designed specifically to meet the unique needs of African companies.

Discover ERP: Your key to integrated business management

An ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system centralizes an organization’s vital functions into a single system. It covers essential areas such as accounting, purchasing and project management. This centralization facilitates rapid, well-informed decision-making, essential to maintaining competitiveness.

Kokamba, an ERP adapted to the specificities of the African market, unifies these elements to optimize management and reinforce corporate strategies. This system is becoming crucial for African companies, enabling them to manage their operations efficiently while adapting to local realities for sustainable growth.

Kokamba: an innovative response to the limitations of traditional ERP systems

Kokamba stands out as a direct response to the limitations of conventional ERP systems, which fail to take into account the specificities of the African market. Existing solutions, often designed for Western contexts, fail to adapt to the economic and regulatory nuances of Africa. Kokamba, developed by AYOKAI, meets this challenge by providing a solution perfectly aligned with local needs.

Kokamba integrates SYSCOHADA standards, a crucial advantage for companies operating in OHADA member countries. OHADA (Organisation pour l’Harmonisation en Afrique du Droit des Affaires) is a regulatory initiative which aims to standardize commercial and accounting practices in 17 African countries to secure investment and facilitate trade. The SYSCOHADA (OHADA Accounting System) is the unified accounting system adopted by member countries, which regulates accounting methods in the harmonized area.

Kokamba: Designed with and for African users

Kokamba, created by AYOKAI, puts the user at the heart of its development to meet the specific needs of African businesses. This approach makes it possible to integrate user feedback directly, bringing targeted and effective improvements. In this way, Kokamba doesn’t just meet current expectations; it anticipates future challenges. It offers proactive solutions.

At the same time, Kokamba benefits from the expertise of experts in African accounting and taxation. It incorporates their valuable advice right from the early stages of development. This collaboration ensures that the software complies with local and international regulations. This synergy makes Kokamba not only suitable, but also advanced, in the African regulatory landscape. 

Intuitive, customizable user interface for a variety of sectors

Kokamba’s interface is designed to be as intuitive as possible, facilitating its adoption by all users, whatever their familiarity with ERP technologies. Customization is another pillar of Kokamba, enabling the ERP to adapt perfectly to various business sectors in Africa

Every Kokamba feature is designed to meet not only the operational requirements, but also the growth aspirations of African companies. By integrating customized solutions into a user-friendly environment, Kokamba doesn’t just meet expectations; it exceeds them, propelling companies towards renewed and sustainable success.

Kokamba: a strategic tool designed for the specific needs of Africa

Kokamba is not just an ERP; it was born out of an internal need (annual financial statements, closing of annual accounts, annual tax declarations, auditing of accounts) and was rapidly transformed into a strategic solution for African companies. This transition from internal use to a commercial platform illustrates Kokamba’s adaptability and depth in the face of the continent’s specific challenges.

Adapting to accounting standards and facilitating compliance

African businesses, from financial institutions to individual entrepreneurs, often have to manage their accounting, tax and legal obligations without necessarily possessing in-depth accounting expertise. Kokamba simplifies this complexity:

  • Simplified compliance 

Kokamba automates compliance with SYSCOHADA standards, enabling companies to produce accurate financial reports and income statements without recourse to external accountants. This not only saves time, but also significantly reduces consulting costs.

  • Ongoing regulatory support 

Through regular updates, Kokamba stays in line with the latest legal and tax changes, ensuring that companies remain compliant without additional effort.

Adaptability to diverse African market ecosystems

The African market is characterized by great disparity, particularly in terms of payment methods and local business practices. Kokamba responds to this diversity by offering :

  • Integration of multiple payment methods 

Kokamba integrates various payment systems to adapt to each country’s local financial ecosystem, facilitating commercial and financial transactions for all types of businesses.

  • Unified platform 

By centralizing all operations in a single system, Kokamba offers a single platform where companies can manage all their transactions and regulatory obligations, increasing efficiency and reducing errors.

Automation of accounting tasks

Kokamba’s strength lies in its ability to automate essential tasks. By integrating SYSCOHADA standards directly into its processes, Kokamba enables companies :

  • Accounting automation 

Accounting journals, closing entries and tax calculations are automated, reducing the risk of human error and speeding up day-to-day operations.

  • Automatic production of financial reports 

Users can generate financial statements, including income statements and balance sheets, without manual intervention, providing financial clarity without the costly engagement of external accountants at the end of the year.

Reducing operating costs

Kokamba helps companies achieve substantial savings:

  • Lower consulting costs

By simplifying regulatory compliance and reducing reliance on external consultants for year-end audits, companies can allocate their financial resources to other strategic initiatives.

  • Optimization of resources 

By automating inventory and order management, Kokamba enables better allocation of resources, avoiding overstocking and minimizing shortages, resulting in more efficient capital management.


Kokamba, developed by AYOKAI, is much more than just an ERP; it’s a revolutionary solution specially designed to meet the unique challenges of African businesses. By adapting precisely to the continent’s regulatory and economic requirements, Kokamba transforms business management by optimizing operations and facilitating compliance with SYSCOHADA standards.
