The Managing Director of Itex, Mr Ernest Uduje, said that Itex’s client portfolio spanned 19 African countries where it had deployed POS to merchants, commercial banks, agent network, transnational corporations and governments.
He said that Itex controlled 30 per cent of the approximately 220,000 POS terminals in Nigeria.

He said that itex collaborated with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and the Nigerian Interbank Settlement System (NIBSS) in the initial implementation of an interoperability platform for the successful cashless Nigeria rollout.
According to him, during the initial implementation of the cashless Nigeria policy, Itex’s Terminal Application Management System (TAMS) platform supported 150,000 POS terminal deployed nationwide.
”With the Nigerian government’s push for a cashless economy and the payment industry’s shift towards electronic payments, Itex has expanded its service offerings.
