KUALA LUMPUR: Digi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd has teamed up with CIMB to roll out its wireless payments terminals where businesses can easily accept credit and debit card payments securely anytime, anywhere.

Digi said on Monday the mobile payment terminal for Malaysian businesses would help them move forward to digitise their operations. 

It pointed out the devices allow businesses to receive card-based payments for products and services without needing to be tethered to a physical phone line.

Digi's chief business officer Eugene Teh said the customer landscape is becoming increasingly digital and businesses need to keep pace with this change. 

“As more people choose to go cashless, businesses need to position themselves to take full advantage of this. Cashless payments today are quick, secure and extremely convenient so it’s a matter of time before the use of payment cards and e-wallets skyrocket,” he said.

Teh said Digi's objective is to help businesses step into this digital world  and hence, the telco is rolling out digital solutions and key strategic partnerships for businesses to capitalise on. 

He said Digi had teamed up CIMB, to bring added convenience to its enterprise business (EB) customers. 

“We envision similar partnership in this direction,” he added. 

Teh pointed put more Malaysian are choosing to strike it out on their own through a myriad of business solution for their customers. 

“We want to help them drive business growth by taking away the complexities of back-end systems so they can focus on delivering their products and services better,” he added.

The wireless payments terminals allow businesses to easily accept credit and debit card payments securely anytime, anywhere. 

It is simple to use and doesn’t need an elaborate setup process. The device also does not require Bluetooth pairing to other devices which reduces battery consumption allowing businesses to use it longer between charges.

As Digi expands 4G Plus network,  these wireless terminals can be used throughout Malaysia. 

Currently Digi’s consistent, high speed network covers 87% of populated areas in 300 cities and major towns. 

Digi recently received the Best Quality of Service award from the Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) and is Malaysia’s largest telco with the highest number of subscribers.
