Uganda Telecom Ltd (UTL) on Wednesday entered into a partnership with PayWay, a one of the leading brand vending payments system through which Uganda Telecom Msente customers will be able to deposit and withdraw money from any of PayWay machines, agents and dealer outlets countrywide.

While signing the partnership, UTL’s head of Msente Joseph Ndoboli said that they are excited to partner with PayWay to boost their mobile money distribution footprint, because this partnership is going to enable customers to enjoy the convenience of being able to transact at numerous points of sale without necessarily having to look for UTL service centres.

“In addition to the affordability of our mobile money tariffs, this partnership will further boost our distribution and mobile money transaction points for greater convenience and an improved service experience for our customers” Ndoboli said.

He added that with the increased number of mobile money agents and outlets through such partnerships and many others to come, they encourage their current and new mobile money customers to try the new platform that offers quite a range of services at very affordable rates including utility payments.

Additionally, Lonah Kamugisha the head of marketing in PayWay said that the partnership with UTL is in line with their mission to provide the most affordable, secure, easy to use and convenient means dedicated to solving all payment related needs.
“We have a wide network of retailers countrywide who are strategically located at supermarkets, petrol stations, retail shops, restaurants and hotels, and our network is stable and UTL customers will be able to conveniently deposit and withdraw their money. I call upon all current and potential UTL customers to visit any of our outlets and I guarantee that it will be a smooth and flawless transaction experience,” Kamugisha explained.
