Alliance Payment Services launches Jamaica’s First Cashless System For Schools
Alliance Payment Services has launched Jamaica’s first cashless system for schools expected to shape the way payments are made at schools and positively impact safety policies for students and teachers.
Manager, Sales and Marketing at Alliance Payment Services, Raquel Reid, said the cashless system initiative is a programme aimed at creating a more secure and efficient environment by removing cash transactions from school campuses and providing administrators with real-time financial reports.
The initiative will see the issuance of an ePay card to all students, who will use the card to make purchases on campus. This will eliminate the need for cash by students and should, therefore, reduce incidents of theft and the associated cases of violence, Ms. Reid said.
To date, the programme has completed a comprehensive and successful pilot at both Campion College and Immaculate Conception High School and was officially launched yesterday during a function at St. George’s College, North Street, downtown Kingston.BM
