Abiodun Aremu with Jetheights Staffs

What is text wallet all about? 

AbiodunAremu: Text wallet was conceived in 2014, we wanted a particular service system that will provide services to people. And looking at our environment, we don’t want it to be internet based because internet is not too good here, and not everybody will always have access to the internet and our interest it to target everybody. So we thought of a system that can reach out to everybody on any mobile phone, so we made it SMS based. The development of text wallet was completed in 2015.TEXT WALLET is an electronic management based system, where you send sms to the server, and the server response back. You can use text wallet to purchase data bundle, subscribe your decoder (DSTV, GOTV, STAR TIMES etc. And we are still working on extending to other platforms like PHCN, Recharge Cards, WAEC scratch cards, JAMB scratch cards etc.

Abiodun Aremu : The world needs software engineers, IT is the future, There’s employment opportunities. And you just have to be ready for it you don’t necessary has to be a genius.

It’s being great at StarsConnect Network Studio, and I really commend you for this
