NCR Software Helps Dhofar University to Automate Tuition Fee Payments for Students

The 24 hour availability of custom-built kiosk will give students the advantage of paying their fees at their convenience

MUSCAT, Oman, October 24, 2015 – NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR), the global leader in consumer transaction technologies, today announced that Dhofar University (DU), a private, not-for-profit institution of higher education, has selected custom-built NCR nKiosk software and Bill Payment kiosk to enable its students with the flexibility to pay their tuition fees. The custom-built kiosk is available 24x7 and allows students to conveniently pay their fees at their convenience, without the help from the staff and irrespective of the opening timing.

The NCR nKiosk at Dhofar University will accept cash payments for now; but allows Dhofar University the flexibility to easily customize the kiosk in the future to accept cheques, coins, and EMV-compliant cards, as well as issue receipts and give change in cash and coins or credit the account.

“In order to improve our students support services, we are very pleased to offer them a first-class fees payment system, giving them closer and better financial services,” said Prof. Mohamed Limam, Deputy Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Research. “The NCR kiosk is extremely easy to operate, very intuitive and really fast. That is exactly what students expect from modern universities, to enable them with easy to access, fast, convenient technology, whenever they want.”

The built-in ability of NCR software offers real-time reporting that allows DU to see all pertinent information such as the busiest use periods, type of fees being paid, and exact usage of kiosk – all at a click. NCR nKiosk allows DU to easily customize the software to meet special requirements, such as changing the flow of a transaction or adding new functionalities like updating student database, enrolment to new courses and marketing forthcoming events.

“By automating fee payments to a NCR kiosk, DU university has not only been able to transform student experience with self-service convenience; it has also allowed them to improve operations and re-purpose office staff to focus on other responsibilities,” said Habib Hanna, managing director NCR for South Gulf and Pakistan.

“The cash acceptance unit on the kiosk makes the tuition fee payment process much more convenient for students, while it’s easy to customize platform allows real time reporting of usage and the flexibility to add new functionalities easily,” said Osama Awad, NCR, country manager. “While DU students can avoid queues by paying their tuition fees using cash or a credit card at any time, DU benefits from easier and more timely collection of fees.”
