Transguard Group Launches Self-Service Payment Kiosks


Created for site-based employees of the business solutions provider, “Transguard Pay” kiosks offer a wide variety of top-up services for local and international mobile numbers, data, air fare and more

Dubai, United Arab Emirates – With employee welfare at the foundation of Transguard Group’s business strategy, the company continues to set the standard for employee wellbeing in the region with its Corporate Social Responsibility programme and employee benefits. This includes the launch of Transguard Pay, an on-site, self-service kiosk that makes it easier than ever for site-based staff to stay connected with friends and family in their home countries.

“Conveniently located within each of our accommodations, Transguard Pay enables our site-based employees to recharge their local and international mobile lines and to top up their data plans right from their residence,” said Greg Ward, Managing Director, Transguard Group. “Being able to connect with family on a regular basis is a necessity to life, especially now, so we’re happy that we can make this easier for our staff.”

A number of services are currently available, including top ups and bill payments for Etisalat, du and international mobile phone accounts, as well as payments for satellite television accounts and the ability to use multiple entertainment recharge coupons. “Transguard will also soon be adding more features to the kiosks, such as a component that will enable employees to easily transfer funds to their home country and to pay other fees, including air fare, utility payments and traffic violations, among others,” explained Manu Kataria, Director-Commercial Cash Services. “In addition, Transguard Pay runs important company news and awareness updates, further connecting all employees and keeping them updated.”

Safety is also a key component, and the screens are sanitized on a regular basis as part of the high touch point cleaning regime Transguard instituted at all accommodations at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic; hand sanitizer dispensers are also located within close proximity to each machine.
