Heritage PortaPOS – For the Business IN MOTION

Today, small businesses and large retailers are turning to mobile point of sale (or mPOS) to increase sales and broaden their customer base. Existing large retailers are also adopting mobile POS solutions and integrating them into their current point of sales environment to enhance payment methods.

The Nigerian retail and corporate market is undergoing a massive transformation in a battle for digital consumers, who are shopping through a variety of channels, and as such expect a more integrated payment experience that is quick, seamless, convenient, and most importantly secure.

Heritage Banking Company Limited is glad to introduce “PortaPOS” – Nigeria’s first portable POS solution – riding on the mPOS revolution, which is fast gaining acceptance worldwide. The Heritage PortaPOS is being introduced to address payment challenges within the retail payments space and also in support of the Cash-less Nigeria project spearheaded by the Central Bank of Nigeria.

Aimed at providing a seamless payment channel for our esteemed merchants, the PortaPOS is a payment channel that performs the functions of an electronic point of sale terminal. The PortaPOS implementations allow services and sales industries to conduct financial transactions, receive payments and provide value-added services via a specialised app on their mobile phones, which in turns helps to improve customers experience and free up valuable real estate that would otherwise be dedicated to the regular POS countertop.

The Managing Director of Heritage Bank, Akinola George-Taylor has disclosed that the bank would continue to increase the wallet of its business transactions with Lagos state government.  

He gave this assurance yesterday when he led a team of the bank on a courtesy visit to the Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu at the government house, Alausa, Ikeja.

George-Taylor commended Sanwo-Olu’s administration, whilst aligning with the great works in Lagos State.

“We are here to introduce ourselves as the new management of the Heritage Bank and being that we have had a relationship with the state (Lagos) for a number of years now, we felt it was necessary to come and present ourselves to the Governor; to say thanks for the business that we enjoyed with the government and that we align and commend the great work he is doing for Lagos State.

“And of course, as bankers, we want to try and increase our own size of the wallet of the business that we do with the government and to extend our best wishes to him and his government. It was a courtesy call to say thank you and wish him well in the next coming elections,” he said.

Speaking earlier, the Governor, Sanwo-Olu said his administration was poised to do more as it continued to play its roles in providing an enabling environment, improving the ease of doing business and being forward-looking in its dealings with financial institutions.

The governor also said that his administration will continue to ensure a mutually beneficial relationship with financial institutions in the State.

He said: “Lagos is the Centre of Excellence and the commercial, economic nerve centre, so we cannot but ensure that we have a very forward-looking mutually beneficial relationship with all of our financial institutions and of course, Heritage Bank is not an exception.

“I want to implore you and your team to be intentional and think something fresh; think something different that can indeed stimulate us. You can rest assured that we know how important it is to spread our businesses and to ensure that everybody gets a part of it knowing that you and your staff will also have a corporate responsibility on the Personal Income Tax component. It is expected that we will continue to play our roles and play our parts.”

Governor Sanwo-Olu congratulated the Managing Director and his new team on the huge and great responsibilities that shareholders and other stakeholders in Heritage Bank have reposed in them,” he said.
