With the world presently dependent on innovations to drive economies, Pan-African Information and Communications Technology Company, CWG Plc has revealed some of the key sectors of Nigeria’s economy, where it strategically deploys its technology expertise.
These sectors, according to the company are health, banking, transportation, telecom, government agencies and the judiciary.
In the health sector, for instance, CWG has been working with approved Health Maintenance Organization (HMOs) using its Health Exchange Platform to ensure that HMOs reach all categories of Nigerians that require health care. The aim is to provide the needed tools where Nigerians can use their phones and/or internet and get across to approved health care providers in the country.
“CWG Plc has been strategically working in different areas of Nigeria’s economy. Aside from the financial sector where we are working with most of the banks in Nigeria in deploying alternative channels that leverages on the internet and mobile banking, we also play a key role in other sectors,” said Francis Okechukwu, Head of Software and Innovations at CWG Plc.
He said in its innovative prowess to help transform the economy with technology, CWG has been working with financial institutions to provide a means for financial inclusion for all tiers of the customer, using agency tools such as the Vericash platform to help the financial institutions on agency operations.
Another technology innovation is the Cooperative Society Platform that is being deployed by thousands of Cooperatives societies in Nigeria to provide platforms for their members’ contribution, accountability and accurate reporting. He argued that with the Unified Cooperative Platform (UCP), members can now make contributions from the comfort of their home or remotely without being physically in the Cooperative society premises.
