The Challenge

The Central Bank wanted to incorporate a cashless system that was cloud-based, best-in-class, highly secure and compliant with applicable regulations. The system should be able to accept online payments, provide analytics and be compatible with all Point-of-sale and vending machines on campus. This system required hosting in an environment external to the Central Bank’s network infrastructure, with an emphasis on continuous improvements, regular maintenance and support.


  • Ability to allow Central Bank employees to view balance and securely top up into their Digital Wallet.
  • Employee access cards to be tokenized and used for cashless transactions at kiosks and vending machines at Central Banks premises.
  • Reporting and metrics along with Centralized Administration for employee accounts.
  • Open API to allow seamless integration between multiple elements of the solution and the ability to integrate future functionalities.
