SystemSpecs Set to Digitalise e-Payment Space



Emma Okonji

SystemSpecs, developer of Remita software for online payment, has assured Nigerians that it would not relent in its passion for innovative software solution that would define the country’s e-payment space.

The Chief Commercial Officer of SystemSpecs, Mr. David Okeme, who gave the assurance shortly after he received an award plaque on behalf of the company that was adjudged the e-Payment Platform of the Year at the Beacon of ICT Awards, which held in Lagos recently, said Remita, which is a local software developed by SystemSpecs and adopted by the federal government for the collection of government revenue, through the Treasury Single Account (TSA), underscores the ability of SystemSpecs to develop local but innovative apps that could compete globally.

One area of strength of SystemSpecs is in innovation, and we have a team of talented staff that is driven by passion to develop innovative solution that will address individual and collective challenges of Nigerians in the e-Payment space, Okeme said.

“So what SystemSpecs is doing with Remita, is about building the right institutional framework for the country, driven by transparency and accountability. It has brought a lot of confidence in government that its cash system is secured, with the use of Remita.”

We did not stop at Remita, but we have been working on new payment apps for Nigeria and we will be launching one of them soon, even though it is already available for trial testing and use. In the coming weeks, we will be unveiling the app, which we regard as the supper app because it combines several features and it is able to deliver all the features in real time, Okeme said.

The new app is a financial app designed for big and small businesses to address financial leakages. It has a lot of features, one of which is account aggregation, which allows the user to see his/her accounting system in just one view. For organisations that manage several bank accounts, they will be able to link all their bank accounts to a single platform and with a single view, they are able to have access to all the bank accounts within the app, without the stress of navigating from one account to another.

The app has also helped in eliminating the use of multiple tokens from different banks in accessing bank accounts. It has also helped in eliminating the use of PIN and passwords to access accounts. It gives clear visibility of all financial transactions, which in turn helps users to make smart decisions about the management of their finances.

Speaking on the strength of the award, he said it would energise the staff to do more.

Nigerians are eager to see new technology solutions that will address their challenges and we at SystemSpecs will continue to carry out researches and come up with best solutions that will address all of the challenges faced by Nigerians. The award will encourage us to develop more technology solutions for Nigerians. We see the award as an encouragement for us to do more in the e-payment space to digitise the use of cash, Okeme added.
