All 35 TGV locations will now accept the Touch ‘n Go eWallet as a means of offline transactions, with online transactions via TGV’s website in the works.
TNG Digital's CEO Syahrunizam Samsudin said watching movies is one of the favourite pastimes of Malaysians, and technology has become an enabler that allows these moments to be enhanced and improved.
"We are proud to be partnering with TGV Cinemas, and together, we want to make a difference in the lives of Malaysians, enhancing the way people live, pay and transact,” he said in Bandar Utama today.
From its inception in 2018, the Touch ‘n Go eWallet is well on its way to shift Malaysians’ mindset towards embracing a cashless future. Apart from lifestyle offerings such as purchasing movie and flight tickets, shopping, mobile reloads, and food and beverage; the e-wallet is also championing urban mobility through the introduction of RFID system, its partnership with EzCab and Public Cab, as well as PayDirect for toll payments.
Currently, the service has close to 5 million registered users and more than 70,000 merchant acceptance points.
TGV Cinemas, meanwhile, has been heavily investing in digital infrastructure over the years to improve its online customer experience.
With its newly-launched website and mobile app, customers now have a more seamless and effortless ticket-purchasing experience.
“Our partnership with TNG Digital adds further momentum to one of our key business goals - to provide a digital-friendly environment to our customers. We are incredibly excited to have TNG Digital as our exclusive partner on this exciting journey, as we move the business forward in this digital savvy era,” said TGV Cinemas' CEO Yeoh Oon Lai.
