The system is known as Revenue Invoicing Management System and Customer Portal.
Its Managing Director, Habib Abdullahi, on Wednesday said the authority embarked on it to further improve port business and make it attractive for users.
He spoke in Lagos at the unveiling of the portal.
He said: “We are presenting the Revenue Invoicing Management System and Customer Portal that are fully convergent and real time platforms for our processes, which will lower operational cost and shorten the time for documentation.
“These platforms fully integrate the electronic flow of information for business–to–customer and business–to–business streams real-time, with higher availability and flexible architecture.”
The company behind the portal, Soft Alliance and Resources Limited, described its introduction as a pragmatic move that would promote efficiency and enhance transparency in the organisation.
Its Managing Director, Mr. Tunde Badejo, expressed his delight while speaking with reporters.
He said: “From any angle one chooses to look at it, the Revenue Invoicing Management System and Customer Portal will bring revenue to the country, block leakages and promote efficiency. Soft Alliance and Resources Limited is excited to work with NPA on this, having seen the vision long ago that the way to build a new Nigeria is through innovative ideas that will make us be part of a global revolution. As a people, we must support the clamour for change and buy into President Buhari’s developmental approach.”
