Ever been in a situation where you’ve forgotten your wallet on campus? You can’t buy food, print out things for your assignments, and all the typical student problems that come with not having money on you. Universiti Teknologi Malaysia won’t have that problem, since they’ve partnered with Boost – an app-based innovative mobile wallet.
Malaysia’s first Cashless Campus now has all 25,000 students and faculty members across the UTM Kuala Lumpur and Skudai campuses being able to use the mobile wallet as a single mode of payment for all on-campus purchases. UTM is breaking ground by going fully cashless and being a testing ground towards a fully cashless society.
Boost, developed by Axiata Digital, has revolutionised the way consumers transact in today’s increasingly digital and mobile world. Boost takes consumer needs and the latest digital technology, and factors it in when making cashless transactions easier, faster and more secure.
The partnership was commemorated in an official signing ceremony executed by Professor Dr Azlan Abd Rahman, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Development) of UTM, Christopher Tiffin, Chief Executive Officer of Boost, as well as En Dick Hilmi bin Dato Hassan, Chief Executive Officer of Zen Trillion Sdn Bhd, the sole merchant acquisition partner of UTM and Boost.
Boost users can pay for purchases at selected merchants at both physical outlets as well as online merchants, without the hassle of cash or card payments. Whether it’s the weekly pasar malam to popular food trucks to well-loved food courts, users can enjoy a hassle free, cashless transaction just by using the app. Boost has been purposefully developed following a human centred approach that takes into account the user’s experiences using the mobile applications.
This app is available on both iOS and Android.
