Nigeria’s biggest system integration company, CWG Plc has spoken up on why it decided to create the Unified cooperative platform, a tech solution that meets the operational needs of cooperative societies in the country.
Speaking at a presentation at the 4th Annual Digital Masterclass and Symposium for Corporative Leaders, Regulators and Managers in Nigeria, organized Cooperative Support Services Limited in Lagos, Mr. Lateef Fadeyi, Product Manager, Unified Cooperative Platform at CWG revealed that the solution is meant to restructure the cooperative sector, which is mostly classified as the minority in Nigeria due to its inconsistency in data representation and exclusion in the financial ecosystem.
According to him, CWG alongside the National Co-operative Financing Agency of Nigeria (CFAN) intends to use the solution to provide a robust all-in-one platform that backs access to financial inclusion and cooperative services.
His words, “The Unified Cooperative Platform (UCP) is an integrated core operations solution with front and backend access to both members and administrators. It automated loan management and reporting with secured access. UCP creates visibility to the Cooperative Societies and its members; closing the gap on access to key benefits like access to healthcare, food, insurance, pension, affordable housing and so much more. Details on how to join the movement were simply by the registration of individual Cooperatives via www.cooplatform.com.ng and follow the set-up process to get the best support from the solution.”
