Firm proposes IT-based solution to NIPOST, logistic coys standoff
Appi Technologies, a Nigerian-based information technology firm, has said the recent bottleneck resulting from the rise in licensing fees for logistic firms in Nigeria by the government-owned NIPOST can be resolved with the use of technology.
Chidera Jonathan Emerenini, Appi’s chief innovation officer, said that if NIPOST can embrace technology, his firm has developed some applications that can help it relate better with the private operators in the logistics business and perhaps scale the industry with ease.
“We at Appi have a much more profitable technology solution for NIPOST to solve the issues of licensing fees, leverage technology to improve its systems and service delivery, improve credibility and manage a database of all logistics and dispatch operators in Nigeria,” said Emerenini.
He said his firm is looking forward to helping NIPOST pivot its operations and be able to meet the needs and expectations of its consumers and partners with ease.
“Our firm has successfully helped scale a number of local solutions from brick and mortar to globally accessible online platforms through our partnerships, systemic approach and easy to use solutions. Our mission is to use technology to solve relevant issues in both business and society,” he continued.
“We have a very deep working knowledge of modern IT solutions; from cutting-edge advanced tracking technologies, to great user experience design for web, Android and IOS platforms.”
Emerenini also said the solution being proposed for NIPOST has been developed and has a national outlook that will help all stakeholders send, track, pay and deliver value that is higher than the current system in place.
“It also has a payment gateway integration for all parties where payment is made in real-time as orders are made. Every mail can also be tracked and there are openings for insurance to cover every package and persons involved in the process.
“We would be glad to make a presentation soonest to the NIPOST authorities on the merits and need for immediate adoption in order not to stifle the development in the industry if the current impasse is allowed to fester longer.”
