To date, the company has deployed over 3,500 domestic solar systems on behalf of the Ministry of Energy and the Burkinabe Rural Electrification Agency (ABER) over the past two years. The company aims to install one million SHS units by 2030.

Since May 13, 2024, the company has been participating in the third season of Orange Fab, organized by Orange Digital Center. Represented by its CEO, AliothSystem is attending the VivaTech conference in Paris, which has been ongoing since Wednesday, May 22, 2024.

His professional career began in 2008 at N-SOFT, a technology company, where he served as a technical support engineer and project manager for the Europe, Middle East, and Africa region.

In 2012, he became a senior core network engineer at the telecommunications and technology company SFR. The following year, he joined Ericsson as a senior core network engineer. In 2014, he moved to Hub One, a digital technology operator, where he worked as a senior core network operations engineer and then as a core network VoIP/ToIP architect from 2017 to 2020.
