GTT signs MoU with UG to install ‘top up’ machine on campus
Students and faculty members at the University of Guyana (UG) Turkeyen Campus will soon be able to access quick GTT credit on campus, as GTT on Tuesday signed an agreement with the tertiary institution to have a vendor ‘top up’ machine installed there.
GTT Sales Manager Richard Das explained the installation of the machine would help strengthen the company’s self-service and 24-hour ‘top up’ programme to some 14,000 persons.
After months of negotiations between the two parties, UG Deputy Vice Chancellor (PACE), Dr Paloma Mohamed Martin, who is also Chairperson of the Transitional Management Committee (TMC), expressed delight in the signing of the agreement, and said the installation of the kiosk would go a far way in benefiting those on campus.
“We have had a long history of partnerships with GTT since I took office about four to five years ago … We are looking forward to closer and more meaningful collaborations with GTT and we are thankful for this first step,” Dr Martin stated.
The Deputy Vice Chancellor explained that the University looked forward to the installation of many more kiosks, since the campus was vast and there was another campus in Berbice. “There is scope for growth, once we are able to test this and see how it is going to work,” Dr Martin said.
Das stated that the GTT team would take on the University’s hope to have more kiosks installed at more points on campus.
This will be the first GTT ‘top up’ kiosk to be set up at the University by GTT.
