UN uses Etisalat Group's m-commerce service
Abu Dhabi, May 12, 2014
Etisalat Group, the leading telecoms operator in the Middle East, Asia and Africa, has announced the adoption of its mobile commerce service “Flous” by a United Nations organisation to transfer salaries.
The United Nations’ Population Fund Agency (PLAN) in Togo will use “Flous” to transfer the salaries of more than 6,000 agents to their mobile phones.
The organisation and its staff will benefit from improved security and flexibility of payments, better logistics, operational efficiencies, and quicker nation-wide accessibility and disbursement.
With the salaries credited to their Etisalat ‘Flous’ accounts, recipients can pay to merchants and utility providers directly, and can also withdraw cash from over 600 locations across the country. PLAN Togo is the first UN organisation in Togo to adopt the service, but joins a number of local companies in Togo that already use the service to disburse salaries to their staff. – TradeArabia News Service
