Dubai Trade integrates e-payment platform for Global Village ticketing
Global Village visitors will have an array of payment options when purchasing tickets
Dubai Trade is embedding the "Rosoom" e-payment gateway with the Global Village website and mobile application to provide visitors the ease and convenience when buying tickets.
The service will mean visitors will no longer need to wait in long queues at ticket booths, plus they will have a wide range of payment options to choose from, such as credit cards and direct debit by linking them to online banking portals and pre-payment tools like e-dirham.
Eng. Mahmood Al Bastaki, CEO of Dubai Trade, said: "When His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, announced the Smart Government initiative, he highlighted his mobile phone to show how government processes should make life easier for people and more like the swift services provided by airlines. This is exactly what we are offering the visitors to Global Village. They can buy tickets electronically and scan the e-ticket at the gate to enter similar to the process involved for an electronic boarding pass."
Ahmad Hussain Bin Essa, CEO of Global Village, said: "We are pleased to partner with Dubai Trade and to use "Rosoom" as a convenient electronic payment system to buy entrance tickets. We believe that it will provide additional value and enriches our visitors' experience.
"The integration of "Rosoom" is part of our efforts towards providing smart solutions, more flexibility and convenience to those planning to visit the Global Village, this indeed will be reflected positively on our visitors happiness which is our aim at all levels. We always research our customers' pre and post visit experience so that we can deliver the best solutions for them in line with the international standards and regulations."
