LABUAN: Ap­proved e-money is­suer Full­rich Malaysia and its e-wal­let brand TaPay yesterday signed a Mem­o­ran­dum of Un­der­stand­ing (MoU) with Labuan In­ter­na­tional School (LIS) as part of its on-go­ing ef­fort to help em­power the smart school sys­tem the coun­try.

As Malaysia's ed­u­ca­tional sec­tor moves to­wards dig­i­tal­i­sa­tion, the MoU with LIS will see both par­ties lever­ag­ing Full­rich Malaysia's tech­nol­ogy.

Full­rich Malaysia and TaPay chair­man Sun JianWei said un­der the MoU, both par­ties would work closely in mu­tual ar­eas of in­ter­est and fa­cil­i­tate each other in de­vel­op­ing a tech­nol­ogy-em­bed­ded school sys­tem and pro­mot­ing and cre­at­ing aware­ness on be­com­ing a cash­less so­ci­ety.

He said among the things that could be ex­plored through this part­ner­ship are a cash­less pay­ment sys­tem in the school cafe­te­ria an track­ing stu­dent at­ten­dance with QR codes.

"This tech­nol­ogy paves the way for teach­ers and stu­dents to en­joy greater free­dom and con­trol in the class­room and in the school en­vi­ron­ment with user-friendly tech­nol­ogy," he said af­ter the MoU sign­ing here yesterday.

The MoU was signed by Full­rich Malaysia vice pres­i­dent Safwan Abu Zarin while LIS was rep­re­sented by its chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Jaf­free Is­mail.

Safwan said un­der this MoU, both par­ties will also ex­plore ar­eas that could meet the needs of all stu­dents, staff and par­ents in mak­ing LIS a tech­nol­o­gyem­bed­ded in­ter­na­tional school.

“We are hon­oured to be work­ing to­gether with LIS on this mean­ing­ful project, which gives us a tremen­dous op­por­tu­nity to play an es­sen­tial role to dig­i­talise the ed­u­ca­tional sec­tor in line with IR4.0.

“We hope we can roll out all the plans that have been lined up for this school as we al­ready have the ex­per­tise,” he said.

Jaf­free said LIS looks for­ward to the col­lab­o­ra­tion with Full­rich Malaysia and TaPay as part of its con­tri­bu­tion to ac­cel­er­ate mi­gra­tion to elec­tronic pay­ments (e-pay­ments) which would greatly ben­e­fit po­ten­tial users in terms of cost sav­ings and an ef­fi­cient pay­ment process.

“This is also in line with one of the nine fo­cus ar­eas un­der Bank Ne­gara Malaysia's Blue­print to drive Malaysia's tran­si­tion to a high value-added, high­in­come econ­omy with ad­e­quate safe­guards to pre­serve fi­nan­cial sta­bil­ity.

“We have full con­fi­dence that Full­rich Malaysia and TaPay would ac­cord our stu­dents and par­ents the full range of ben­e­fits aris­ing from its util­i­sa­tion of the e-wal­let in our daily op­er­a­tions, once im­ple­mented,” he added. Ber­nama
