Since 2018, Orba, a remote-operating, technology-development firm, has been helping companies across the region develop their technological infrastructure.
Started by a team of four Jamaican co-founders, CEO Dwight Scott, Head of Mobile Luechen Christopher, CTO Jordan Jones, and COO Marlon James—Orba is on a mission to prove that regional talent can be globally competitive.
Scott describes the company as a 360-degree, technology-development firm strengthened by family and faith that can work with its clients from conceptualisation to deployment, to management and maintenance.
Orba’s team has a two-pronged approach: assisting clients with their technology-development journey, and developing their own company products including Orba E-Signature, Metro platform – an initial public offering (IPO) and private placement application currently being used by major clients.
Our Today was informed that two additional products are being streamlined for release later this year.
“When you think Orba, think this, you manage your clients while we help you to be compliant, manage risk at scale and innovate” said Scott.
“If you’re an investment company and you’re doing IPO or you’re doing private placement and when you want to raise a bond and you want to automate the entire public equity and private placement offering, Orba is the company powering most of the investment firms [in Jamaica] to automate their public equity and private placement experience,” he added, speaking on the utility of the company’s Metro platform.
Scott said that Orba has plans to make a huge impact in the space this year, with key plans for regional expansion.
“What’s next for Orba is we want to scale the company locally and regionally, we’re going to have operations in seven additional Caribbean countries this year. We want to become not just the company of choice but the company top of mind when business leaders are thinking of who can give them an extra edge,” explained Scott.
“We want to position the company to deploy our own products to become the most trusted technology company over the next four to five years,” he continued.
“Any company that is serious about having an advantage in their space through innovation and technology, whether you’re in manufacturing, distribution, finance, or any other industry, then Orba can help you. We don’t just understand technology, we understand product development, customer journey and success,” he added.
