Telkom Kenya has introduced the T-kash App, an easy-to-use application that will enable its customers to access a wider service offering on its digital financial services platform
The T-kash App, which can be downloaded from the Google Play Store, the Huawei App Store as well as the Apple Store, is an addition through which Telkom customers will access T-kash.
Telkom’s chief strategy and business development officer, Julius Cheptiony said, “The launch of the T-kash App is the culmination of extensive research on evolving customer trends, anchored on the need for simplicity, security, availability and a diversified service offering. The result is an easy-to-navigate platform that seeks to simplify a customer’s experience with respect to mobile financial services.”
The T-kash App will enable the customer to send money to a mobile wallet within the Telkom network, to an MPESA wallet and soon to an Airtel Money wallet, or to a bank account, to buy airtime and data bundles for their own Telkom line or for another Telkom customer, pay bills, as well as make withdrawals and deposits at a T-kash agent.
In 2021, T-kash was integrated into the government digital services platform, eCitizen, enabling T-kash customers to pay for National and County Government Services that are to be found on the Portal. T-kash customers are now able to make digital payments for services offered by the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA); Directorate of Criminal Investigations, Business Registration Service and Immigration Services.
Through T-kash, entrepreneurs in Mombasa, Nyeri and Kisumu Counties can also pay for their single business permits, trade licenses and e-construction permits.
The launch of the T-kash App comes two months after Telkom, together with its partners, networks and telecommunications company Ericsson, and systems integrator NEC XON, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to add an additional 2,000 sites onto Telkom’s network, by 2023.
