History

Transnational Computer Technology (TCT) was founded in 1978 in the U.S by a small group of applied mathematics consultants, providing implementation and designing of fast array processors in the then emerging field of Digital Signal Processing. It was not until the late 80’s that TCT was incorporated having its headquarter in El Segundo, California.

In 1984, TCT developed and marketed application software for accounting and merchandising using third generation computer languages. TCT assisted in the implementation of the first defense network (ARPANET -–the early form of the Internet) and a commercial timesharing network (TYMNET)

TCT decided to expand its operations in Nigeria partnering with Oracle Corporation. TCT helped in the implementation of the Integrated Financial Management Information System (IFMIS) project for the Lagos State Government. TCT went on to implement the IFMIS project for the Cross River State Government of Nigeria.

Riding on the success in Nigeria, later in the same year, TCT opened its first office in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Being an early entrant into this unexplored geography, TCT successfully implemented and delivered projects for “key” banks such as Commercial Bank of Ethiopia, Construction and Business Bank, Buna Bank, and Wegagen Bank. With the IFMIS project, TCT handled about seven Ministries as well as various public bodies. Currently, TCT who’s the leading IT service provider in this part of the globe is leading a multi-million dollar IFMIS project for the Federal Government of Ethiopia.
