The Postal Corporation of Jamaica (Post Corp) recently announced the addition of sales of the Jamaica Urban Transit Company's (JUTC) Smart Card to its range of services.
At a ceremony to launch this
service, held at the Central Sorting Office in Kingston on Thursday, August 24, Kern Spencer, Minister of State in the Ministry of Industry, Technology, Energy and Commerce, remarked that sales of JUTC's Smart Card complement the suite of Post Corp's available offerings.
He noted the fact that by going for an already sensitised market, Post Corp is certain to maximise its earning potential for Smart Card sales. Another plus outlined by the minister was the proven capability of government agencies to create effective alliances, and especially so in this case as the Smart Cards have multi-agency operability.
JUTC President Patrick McIntosh noted some benefits and financial rewards that accrue to users of the Smart Card. In particular, he indicated the unique benefit of utilising the electronic data format: If a Smart Card is lost, it can be replaced, and the remaining value is transferred to the replacement card. He added that the post offices offering Smart Cards were selected by virtue of their convenience to JUTC customers.
