A cashless society is forming within the grounds of Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM). Over 25,000 students and faculty members across the UTM Kuala Lumpur and Johor campuses will use Boost as their mode of payment for all on-campus purchases.

Developed by Axiata Digital, Boost is an e-wallet that allows users to pay for transactions using just their mobile devices. They can add money into the app via credit card, debit card or any of the 17 online banking partners.
