Aimed at creating a more inclusive digital society, Touch 'n Go eWallet has joined forces with Singapore’s Dotlines to provide the migrant community in Malaysia with the choice to participate in cashless transactions.
A technology-powered consumer and business solution group, Dotlines’ Sohoj app, fully developed in the company’s second development center in Malaysia, enables the migrant community to stay connected constantly, transfer top-ups, buy goods and services for self and families back home, and transact securely via its widely spread retail partners.
With this collaboration, Touch ‘n Go eWallet will incorporate features from the app so that migrant workers can reload and transfer top-ups, purchase internet packs or airtime and send them to their family and friends back home through assisted account activation and many more.
The services will be available to countries such as Bangladesh, Indonesia, Myanmar, Nepal, India, Pakistan, Myanmar, the Philippines, and Vietnam.
Speaking on the expanded services, TNG Digital Sdn Bhd chief commercial officer Danny Chua said: “We will introduce more and more curated services to our migrant friends in the coming months. At the same time, we have also ensured our network of retail and reload merchants for Touch 'n Go eWallet includes those that serve the migrant segment.”
Dotlines Chief Commercial Officer and head of Southeast Asia Tareq Udden also commented that Sohoj has helped millions of blue-collar Bangladeshis, Nepalese and Indonesians enjoy a better digital life and stay connected to their families back home.
“We patiently built a curated network of 12,000 touchpoints across Malaysia to facilitate the life of these migrant workers in an assisted manner. Touch ‘n Go is a strong impact brand in Malaysia, and with this collaboration, we will make the lives of the migrant workers even better.”
