(The Star) Touch ’n Go be used in sales and purchase medium nationwide

KUALA LUMPUR: Touch ’n Go Sdn Bhd will introduce a new digital platform which will be used in the sales and purchase medium nationwide in the next six months, in line with the move to further enhance cashless transactions at the community level.

Chief executive officer Syahrunizam Samsudin said the platform, currently named Touch’n Go e-Wallet, was undergoing several evaluation processes by Bank Negara before it could be introduced to the public.

“Our vision is to introduce this cashless payment system deeper at the community level, not just at the city centre or shopping malls, but also at retail outlets close to the community. In the next six months, we will be launching this platform and we will see the reaction from the users by then,” he told reporters at the Touch ‘n Go Aidilfitri open house here.

The pilot project for the platform was launched in Taman Tun Dr Ismail two months ago in collaboration with the resident association, along with retailers, restaurant operators and market traders, and the respond had been positive in terms of the system's stability and user-friendly function. — Bernama
