A joint venture between Trinity Technologies Limited and Zain Telcoms in South Sudan has seen the birth of the country’s first mobile phone-based money transfer service, mGurush (m for mobile and Gurush for money in Arabic).
According to the Vice President of Trinity Tech, Joseph Arinaitwe, the new mobile commerce platform is a “simple, easy to use customer friendly access menu that makes it fast and convenient for customers and dealers to carry out transactions.”
mGurush provides consumers with a variety of product offerings including bill/service payments, airtime purchases, money transfer services, cross-border remittances, and power payment options. Arinaitwe revealed that the service will work with anyone that has a handset across South Sudan, adding that it is supported by a state-of-the-art platform that ensures system stability and great customer experience.
The launch of mGurush comes after local tech firm, Trinity Technology, received an operating license from the National Communication Authority (NCA) of South Sudan late last year to launch a mobile money transfer system. It subsequently got an approval from the Bank of South Sudan.
