National Commercial Bank Jamaica and OnTime Taxi Company Disrupts Market with Mobile Money Solution – Quisk
National Commercial Bank Jamaica Limited (NCB) through its mobile money solution – Quisk, has announced that it will be collaborating with the OnTime Taxi Company to drive a shift in the local transportation market.
The match was described as timely, by both companies as both are said to be seeking to increase the safety of passengers by allowing them to pay fares using NCB Quisk.
Phillip Fearon, Chief Executive Officer of OnTime Taxi, for his part said they remained committed to improving their services and were happy that they were able to partner with NCB to introduce a solution to make their customer’s lives easier and help their drivers.
OnTime passengers will be able to pay drivers using their cellphones, with a text message notification being sent to the drivers when the transaction is complete.
Drivers will also be able to pay administrative and service fees to OnTime using NCB Quisk, using its bill pay feature.
In using Quisk, customers will no longer be required to pay with cash; instead they can use the Quisk mobile app or a text message which will facilitate improved convenience and safety.
With no more stopping at the ABM to withdraw cash or finding change to pay fares, it solves many customers’ pain points and facilitates better cash management for both parties.
Claudette Rodriquez, General Manager, NCB Payment Services Division, indicated that On Time taxis are an important part of the transportation infrastructure and their ability to improve the security of both drivers and passengers, while adding convenience, is a game changer.
NCB Quisk mobile money is a form of electronic money that allows consumers to conduct financial transactions using a mobile phone.
