The step resonates with the global and local payment technology trends and elevates customer satisfaction and happiness.

Fadi Abu Shamat said, “Our partnership with the Dubai Roads and Transport Authority to incorporate nol cards into Samsung mobile devices marks a significant step toward the development of a more convenient and efficient transportation system. This innovative partnership not only makes life easier for riders but also underscores our dedication to delivering cutting-edge technologies that enrich the lives of residents and visitors.
