ENOC Group has recorded 12 million cashless transactions in the first five months of 2020, in a move towards encouraging cashless payments in the UAE. This is one of the key pillars of the UAE Vision 2021, and in line with the directives issued by the UAE Government to maintain precautionary measures in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. The ENOC Group recorded an increase in cashless transactions when compared to cash payments during the same period.
More than 5 million cashless transactions were recorded through ENOC Vehicle Identification Pass (VIP), the Group’s contactless payment service for individuals and corporate customers. In addition, over 5 million cashless transactions were facilitated via debit and credit cards. Customers also used ENOC Select Card to make 1.38 million cashless transactions. More than 15,000 cashless transactions were paid through ENOCPay, while Dubai Smart Government enabled an additional 26,118 cashless transactions.
“Driving the growth of a digital economy in the UAE is of immense importance. The growth of cashless transactions across our retail operations underpins our commitment to supporting the nation’s smart infrastructure. Especially during these challenging times, ensure the safety of our customers and employees. We will continue to support the UAE government’s vision and drive to encourage cashless transactions,” said Saif Humaid Al Falasi, group CEO, ENOC.
To further enhance the safety and security of its stakeholders, ENOC Group continues to urge its customers to use ENOCPay to refuel their vehicles. ENOC has also introduced a diverse portfolio of cashless payment options for customers, including NOL cards, Dubai Now app, Apple Pay and Samsung Pay.
The group has been investing heavily in digitisation to ensure business continuity and operational excellence. One of the key elements lies in the group’s efforts in enabling cashless payment options across its retail operations. ENOC Group first introduced cashless payment options in 1996, with the launch of the ENOC Select Card, and has continued to rollout several innovative cashless and contactless payment methods across service stations in the UAE to enhance safety and facilitate zero contact payments.
