e-Cheque, the future


Remmy Nweke

NIGERIAN businesses would soon witness another revolution that is gradually gaining currency based on deployment of the locally developed software, Remita, to facilitate issuing of electronic cheques (e-cheques).

Remita, which is a salaries and pension solution, is the platform to deliver this innovation of e-cheques.

As said by the Managing Director, SystemSpecs Limited, Mr. John Obaro, Nigerian entrepreneurs should be ready for e-cheques, as that is, the way to future payment solutions.

Listing the values imbedded in one of his firm’s specialised solution for payment, Remita, he explained that e-cheque enables organisations or individuals to begin to write cheques electronically, which could be signed electronically too.

Other values of Remita, which he described as interesting product, include its ability to schedule for contributors that is automated.

This, he said, is in addition to its being available on a touch of a button, stressing that employees’ salaries, for instance, would be paid into their accounts and to Pension Fund Administrators (PFAs) accordingly.

To achieve this dream, SystemSpecs’ boss said, his firm is partnering the pioneer switching agent in the country, InterSwitch Nigeria Limited, in deploying Remita, a one-stop solution in the nation’s Information and Communication Technology (ICT) market place.

He emphasised that Remita, is an electronic courier service that rides on secured e-payment platforms to deliver funds to bank accounts.

Also speaking, Executive Director, HumanManager Services at SystemSpecs, Mr. Deremi Atanda, said the HumanManager family of solution is a multi-currency and multi-language.

“HumanManager is not for any specific industry but for all,” he declared.

Accompanied by the Group Head, Business Development, Mr. Chris Osinubi and Senior Marketing Manager, Mr. Moses Briamah, the director noted that the design concept of HumanManager, was based on self-service and role-based access.

Self-service, he said, is a natural freedom to experience doing things that personally concerns an individual in an Information Management System (IMS).

The satisfaction, Mr. Atanda said, is what the concept is all about.

On the role-based access, he explained, that HumanManager, could be accessed through different perspectives.

“Your role in an organisation determines what you can see or do and is referred to as role based access,” he said.

Further, he said, that the course objective was to expose top executives to the world of HumanManagers possibilities.
