As announced during the Government Town Hall meeting in Kumasi a week ago, Vice President of the Republic of Ghana Dr Bawumia launched a new Mobile App for the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) called ‘ECG-Power’ today.
With this app, about 2.8 million out of the 3.8 million ECG customers will immediately have the convenience and an easier way of buying electrical power and making payments for same, as well as access other ECG services via their mobile phones. Plans are far underway for the remaining customers to be hooked up onto the system within a year.
Per the design, both users of smartphone and non-smart phone can buy power through their mobile phones. Smartphone users can download the App on Google play store or Apple. Those with “yam” phones can simply dial *226# to buy credit for their meters. You can also buy credit for friends or relatives using the mobile App.
This technology will also tackle two major problems: first, improve on ECG’s critical functions of delivering power to its customers; and, second, address the more serious challenge of mobilizing its revenues from power delivery effectively and efficiently.
The ECG mobile App was developed in house by IT staff of ECG and I urged the Management of ECG to continue to provide the staff with the necessary support, tools and productivity-enhancing incentives to deliver on the job. Hence we congratulate the team of ECG staff that developed this application. Don’t Forget to Please Share This Post. Source: PinaxOnline.com
