The Ingenico EFT930G
, a wireless payment terminal, has been selected by the Angolan Ministry of Home Affairs for the payment of traffic fines.
Starting with a pilot in Luanda, this new payment channel implements a quick, convenient and safe process for the payment of fines. It will authorize the amount received, which will go directly into the treasury account and will facilitate the reimbursements of the expenses of the traffic agents involved.
allows drivers to pay the fines with their own credit card and then continue on their way with no embarrassment, thus improving services for Angolan citizens and reducing the amount of cash handled. In addition, introducing new information technologies for the payment of fines helps the Angolan Ministry of Home Affairs to prevent possible frauds.
The EFT930 series combines a peerless choice of rapid communication and connectivity options with 32-bit ARM 9 processing and state-of-the-art security. It allows any mobile payment scenario – including contactless – to be envisaged, while guaranteeing high-speed yet cost-effective transactions. Compact, elegant and light weight, these handheld user-friendly powerhouses contain integral smart and magnetic card readers, large backlit keypads and displays, rechargeable batteries, plus fast printers to ensure every operation is simple, convenient, and easy to complete.
Currently, 120 officers have been trained on this new POS solution and the number is set to increase in the near future. This new system will coexist with the previous one in order to allow drivers who are not equipped with a credit card to still pay their fines.
