TPA automates its billing and payment system

Tanzania Ports Authority(TPA) has automated its billing and payment system. “The electronic payment system has started with CRDB Bank but will be extended to the National Microfinance Bank (NMB) and Citi Bank as target is to incorporate all banks, ATMs, POSs and mobile payments services such as M-pesa, Tigo-pesa and Airtel Money by the end of the year,” says acting director of Information and Communications Technology Phares Magesa.

The automation is intended to improve revenue collection and not only controlling revenues but also increasing efficiency in service delivery to the port clients and also establishing a system of less paperwork.
