SimplePay, a Nigerian payments solutions company has announced a
partnership with Lekki Concession Company Limited (LCC).
The partnership provides an innovative solution for LCC eTag
customers to top-up their account through PayReminderâ„˘.
PayReminderâ„˘ is a solution that informs and remind eTag users to make payment into their toll
account when their balance is low. PayReminderâ„˘ triggers an SMS to notify the
customer on their registered gsm line, of their low balance status when the
customerâ€™s balance reaches a certain threshold. The SMS comes with a payment
link, which when clicked, allow the user to conveniently top-up their account
by following the instructions to complete the payment. The customerâ€™s account
will be credited instantly. The service is a safe and convenient way for eTag
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.
Furthermore, SimplePay Limited will also offer registration for
and migration of existing cash paying customers to the eTag platform. Such
customers will improve their time of passing through the toll gates
significantly by gaining access to the speed lanes and the dedicated eTag Only
lanes, while paying discounted toll tariff.
Speaking at the service inauguration and signing ceremony, Mr.
Simeon Ononobi CEO (SimplePay Limited) said that this partnership would help
LCC and SimplePay to collaborate in providing a convenient solution to eTag and cash paying customers and will reduce the
stress of having to come to the LCC office to to-up their account when their
balance is low. Migrating cash customers to eTag also means the customer will
pay less and enjoy quicker drive through the toll plaza. Mr. Ononobi also
promised that SimplePay limited will continue to work with LCC to offer better
solutions to its customers. â€śFor me this is just the beginning of a great
working relationship between two forward thinking entitiesâ€ť.
The Managing Director/CEO, Lekki Concession Company Limited (LCC),
Mr. M.M. Hassan, welcomed the idea of the PayReminderâ„˘ service, as he stated
that the service would reduce the issue of cash collections at the toll plaza,
and also reduce traffic congestions.
