Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) will adopt Dubai eGovernment's new mPay mobile payment system, allowing utility users to pay bills using their mobile phone.

The organisations signed a memorandum of understanding on day one of GITEX Technology Week at the Dubai eGovernment stand.

The authority claims the payment system will be highly secure, and is compliant with both MasterCard and Visa security programmes.

DEWA general manager Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer says the organisation will roll out mPay in the coming months. "We are highly impressed with the reliability and robustness of the mPay service," he adds.
