- Allows customers to reload prepaid, top-up e-wallets, pay loans conveniently
- Part of collaboration with GoBiz by U Mobile, TNG Digital, dobiQueen, ECO-Shop
FINANCIAL services solution provider OpenSys (M) Berhad has launched the X-Kiosk, described as a digital lifestyle payment solution aimed at bringing convenience to underserved communities.
The X-Kiosk is the result of collaborations and partnerships with GoBiz by U Mobile, TNG Digital, dobiQueen and ECO-Shop, the company said in a statement.
X-Kiosk allows customers to conduct payment services for themselves (or behalf of other users) as the kiosk can be used for prepaid reloads, e-wallet top-ups, SIM card replacement, SIM card purchasing, bill payments and loan repayments, the company said.
The product is meant to address pain points of underserved communities, who lack the means of accessing bank accounts, cards and e-wallets for payment purposes, it added.
Eric Lim, chief executive officer of OpenSys, said the company believes the X-Kiosk is well positioned to support the Malaysian government’s MyDigital initiatives to encourage more Malaysians to adopt a digital payment lifestyle.
“We are delighted with this key milestone as X-Kiosk will bring great convenience to the underserved communities for a better digital lifestyle,” Lim said.
“Settling payments is easy now, as X-Kiosk offers the most comprehensive payment modes in cash, credit/ debit cards and e-wallets. It is also a platform to convert cash to e-wallet for the underserved communities to participate in the digital economy.”
The company said X-Kiosk also serves as an extended payment service channel without the need of brick-and-mortar investment from participating merchants.
It provides a complementary physical presence at community locations, making it a cost-effective channel for building brand presence on the ground, it said.
It will also help to increase footfall to participating premise owners, bringing vibrancy to their store fronts, adding more value and convenience to their customers, it claimed.
Up to 120 units of X-Kiosk will be deployed this year in high traffic community-based lifestyle locations such as retail outlets (including ECO-Shop and dobiQueen), convenience stores, residential buildings, universities and colleges.
OpenSys added that they are looking forward to collaborating with more merchants, billers, issuers and premise owners to provide more convenience to the communities.
