Nigeria may soon have a portal where the naira currency will be accepted. This is as IPI Solutions Nigeria Limited recently officially unveiled the enhanced version of it’s online ordering portal for Microsoft cloud solutions and licenses.
Initially commissioned early in the year for a test run, the portal is now fully operational with enhanced features, which includes naira denomination acceptance. The portal is an innovative self-service platform enabling customers and partners to independently initiate and conclude their ordering process online and get delivery within two hours.
The portal, seamlessly integrated with www.ipigroupng.com, an IPI Solutions website, empowers customers to independently login and order for any Microsoft Cloud Solutions of their choice on a self-service basis. This also allows customers to pay with their existing bank issued naira card thereby helping customers save on their planned forex investments. For customers outside Nigeria however, IPI Solutions accepts only USD as a means of payment.
