By Adedapo Adesanya
Global digital solutions firm, Interswitch, has revealed that it is prioritising its service offering to its customers and clients to continue to bolster its presence in Nigeria.
This was disclosed by Mr Akeem Lawal, the Managing Director, Payment Processing & Switching at Interswitch Purepay while fielding questions from journalists at a media parley on Thursday.
He said, “The role we play in the ecosystem is more of an enabler. Right now, we are providing services to all payment service banks and financial technology companies.
“We have created a platform to let them provide these services. Our role has made it possible to do without interference.”
The leading payments company highlighted the role its various platforms such as Verve, Quickteller, Quickteller Paypoint, Interswitch Payment Gateway and API Marketplace among others, play across ecosystems, including, but not limited to financial services, health, payment, lending, transportation, e-commerce and so on.
The payments provider also gave clearer perspectives on the platforms’ individual functionalities and future projections, while also inviting questions from the guests.
Mr Lawal also noted that the company is on a mission to train more Africans to create innovative solutions to tackle the various issues plaguing Africa.
He mentioned that one of the ways Interswitch is making this possible is by using the ‘catch them young’ approach through its Switch-a-Future initiative that birthed the InterswitchSPAK National Science Competition aimed at driving interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) among young Africans, who are poised to bring about change to the continent.
