SimplePay Partners LCC on Toll Payment
By Modupe Gbadeyanka
A Nigerian payments solutions company, SimplePay, has announced a partnership with the Lekki Concession Company Limited (LCC), to provide an innovative solution for LCC e-Tag customers to top-up their account through PayReminder.
The PayReminder will alert e-Tag users/customers to make payment into their toll account when their balance is low, through an SMS on their registered GSM line.
The SMS comes with a payment link, which when clicked, allows the user to conveniently top-up their account by following the instructions to complete the payment. The customer’s account will be credited instantly.
The service is a safe and convenient way for e-Tag users to make payment from the comfort of their homes and offices without having to queue up at the LCC customer service centres or other physical outlets to top-up their toll account.
SimplePay Limited also offered registration for and migration of existing cash paying customers to the e-Tag platform.
Such customers will improve their time of passing through the toll gates significantly by gaining access to the speed lanes and the dedicated e-Tag Only lanes, while paying discounted toll tariff.
CEO of SimplePay Limited, Mr Simeon Ononobi, said the partnership would provide a convenient solution to e-Tag and cash paying customers by reducing the stress of having to go to the LCC office to to-up their account whenever their balance is low.
He said cash paying customers migrating to e-Tag will pay less and enjoy quicker drive through the toll plaza.
Mr Ononobi pledged that SimplePay limited will continue to work with LCC to offer better solutions to its customers. “For me this is just the beginning of a great working relationship between two forward thinking entities”.
Managing Director/CEO of LCC, Mr M.M. Hassan, commended the PayReminder service, adding that the service would reduce the issue of cash collections at the toll plaza as well as traffic congestions.
