SystemSpecs, Africa’s foremost software and fintech giant, celebrates her 30th anniversary as it has transformed into a holding company and expanded its operations.

The software provider firm announced it has two distinct subsidiaries which are Remita Payment Services Limited (RPSL) and SystemSpecs Technology Services Limited (STSL) in February, 2022.

John Obaro, Group Managing Director of SystemSpecs provided insights into some of the company’s biggest milestones and explained the firm’s three decades of innovation and impact, while speaking at the Business Network Experience session organised by the Redeemed Christian Church of God, City of David Parish.

According to Obaro, SystemSpecs was founded in 1992 when he left his job as a banker to start a wholly indigenous software company at a time when most Nigerians didn’t know what software was all about.

“After about 10 years in the banking sector, I resigned from one of the highest paying organisations in Nigeria, then founded SystemSpecs, a wholly indigenous software house.” Obaro said.
