2 Delivering a keynote address at the unveiling of an app, known as “Cydene Express’’ in Lagos on Wednesday, Ogbonna said that corporate entities failing to keep pace with technology and innovations would go into extinction sooner than later.
3 Ogbonna said that technology had caused disruptions in markets across the globe, a development he said, had resulted to untimely deaths for many corporate entities.
4 “Globally, disruptions have become the order of the day and technology is at the heart of that disruption, therefore, any entity that fails to shape up will naturally ship out.
He lauded Mr Skalid Obi, the software developer, who built the “Cydene Express’’ app for inventing a software that would help thousands of Nigerian homes to ensure efficient use of household utilities.
8 Also speaking, the Executive Vice-Chairman of Techno Oil Ltd., Mrs Nkechi Obi, praised the software developer for his tenacity and commitment to bridging the gap in delivering utility services to households.
10 Earlier, Skalid, who is also the Chief Executive Officer of Cydene Energy Services, said that the company developed “Cydene Express’’, to boost the adoption of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) among Nigerian households.
11 He said that the company was prompted to develop the app, to bridge the gap in accessing and paying for household utilities from the comfort of homes.
12 “At Cydene Energy, we have built a socially inclusive app that can accommodate Nigerians.
13 With this app, Nigerians can now securely purchase utilities while maintaining comfort and maximizing productivity.
14 “We realised the need to own the management system in other to understand the logistics of delivering services from merchants to consumers.
17 He explained that users could send money to friends and families to pay for utilities, using the app.
