    Access Bank chief enjoins companies to embrace technology to stay afloat

    The Group Managing Director of Access Bank Plc., Mr Roosevelt Ogbonna, has enjoined corporate entities to embrace technology, to stay afloat in the increasingly competitive market place.

    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.

    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.

    “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.

    “Mr Obi and his team at Cydene Energy Services have thrown up a challenge to other Nigerian youths to bring change through the creation of innovative technologies and ideas.

    The Access Bank chief described the new app as a value-added platform that would give easy access to utilities and services in Nigeria.

    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.

    She, however, told the Federal Government and corporate entities to find ways to encourage young Nigerians to embrace innovations and technologies that would contribute to nation growth.

    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.

    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.

    “At Cydene Energy, we have built a socially inclusive app that can accommodate Nigerians.

    With this app, Nigerians can now securely purchase utilities while maintaining comfort and maximizing productivity.

    “We realised the need to own the management system in other to understand the logistics of delivering services from merchants to consumers.

    ” He said that with the introduction of the app, the Federal Government’s effort to boost LPG adoption as cooking fuel via the National LPG Expansion Plan would receive a boost.

    A Director of Cydene Energy Services, Mr Sam Ochonma, said that the app was also handy in making payments for other utilities such as airtime, cable television and electricity bills.

    He explained that users could send money to friends and families to pay for utilities, using the app.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that up to 10,000 Nigerian households have embraced the app for efficient use of household utilities.

    10,000 Nigerian households embrace new utilities App, due for launch Aug. 3

    Ten thousand Nigerian homes have embraced an App developed by a Nigerian software developer to facilitate efficient use of household utilities.

    Unveiling the App, known as “Cydene Express’’ at a ceremony in Lagos on Monday, the developer, Mr Skalid Obi, said the App was developed to help teeming Nigerian households and companies to pay for and track use of utilities.

    Obi, who is also the Chief Executive Officer of Cydene Energy Services Ltd., said the App would also help Nigerians to make efficient use of utilities.

    He said that the App would be presented formally to Nigerians on Aug. 3 in Lagos, describing the invention as a major breakthrough in the quest by people to track their use of utilities.

    According to him, the app will be used to access electricity, cooking gas, diesel, call credit and other related utility bills.

    He explained that users of the App would exploit utilities from the comfort of their homes.

    The software developer said that he developed the App, following an industry experience he gained while working as an intern in Exxon Mobil and at the Strategy Department in Techno Oil Ltd., Lagos.

    “The experience helped me immensely in understanding the Nigerian business environment and how to provide engineering solutions to some teething problems.

    “At Techno Oil, I handled dealer’s agreements from station management to product allocations.

    “I quickly realised that the process of product supply is structured in all parts of the supply chain, except to the very end user.

    “The challenge for consumers was their inability to know when and how they would track their daily needs and services as and when needed.

    He said: “I decided that if I could automate the process of purchasing and distributing energy products on a retail level, then I would have solved a huge part of the problem faced by consumers’’.

    Obi said that industry experience had also played a big role in his floating and nurturing a data sciences company, known as Cydene Data Solutions.

    He said the company provided solutions on various energy needs, including diesel supplies, cooking gas, energy tokens and other household needs.

    According to him, with Cydene Express App, one can order cooking gas, fuel, diesel, airtime credit and electricity tokens from the comfort of your home.

    The entrepreneur said that the idea was to create an energy wallet that would serve all household’s energy needs, including taking advantage of energy merchants around you.

    Obi recalled that his interest in the development of IT solutions started a long time ago after his high school, saying that he felt humbled to have contributed to the growth of the Nigerian economy.

    Also speaking at the event, a non-Executive Director of Cydene Energy Services, Mr Sam Ochonwa, said that the App, which leverages on Artificial Intelligence would help to ease the stress of Nigerians using its tracking facilities.

    Ochonwa said that the App was a major contribution in supporting the initiative of the Federal Government to ease the daily stress plaguing citizens.

    A News Agency of Nigeria  correspondent at the unveiling of the App reports that Cydene Express is a socially inclusive payment platform.
