Payment gateway provider SystemSpecs was recently named winner of the “Most Innovative e-Payment Company of the Year” at the Top 25 Most Innovative Companies & Institutions Award 2017 organised by BusinessDay Media Limited, the publishers of BusinessDay Newspapers.
The award is in recognition of Remita’s continued leadership and innovation of the financial technology space through the facilitation of secure and seamless financial transactions. In the last decade, the brand has been fuelling transactions in the financial system and in the last 5 years has provided the backbone infrastructure for the implementation of the Federal Government’s Treasury Single Account (TSA).
In a statement, the organisers of the Awards said that the BusinessDay Top 25 Most Innovative Companies & Institutions Awards celebrates “the achievements of those who are spurring growth, development, creating new economic opportunities, and inspiring the new generation of innovators in shaping Africa’s future.”
Receiving the awards, David Okeme, SystemSpecs’ Chief Marketing Officer, said, “SystemSpecs is delighted to receive this award which recognises the pivotal role of Remita in driving the transformation of the payment system in Nigeria and Africa. This could not have been achieved without the visionary leadership of Mr. John Obaro our MD, and the help of all our employees who worked together to ensure that Remita becomes the number one payment processing platform in Nigeria.”
“Coming after the unveiling of the beta version of our Remita App, this recognition, in no small way, reinforces our commitment to transforming how payments are made and received in Nigeria and across the African continent.”
In a related development, Remita also recently won the e-Payment Platform of the Year award at the 9th edition of Beacon of Information & Communication Technology (BoICT) Awards.
The BoICT Awards recognises best practices and rewards the outstanding contributions of individuals and organisations towards the advancement of ICT in Nigeria.
Again, Okeme said: “This award is a clear affirmation of Remita’s contribution to the improvement of the payment experiences of individuals as well as corporate entities in Nigeria.”
The annual event, which this year had close to 2 million votes across the various categories, is organised by Communications Week Media Ltd., publishers of Nigeria Communications Week.
