South African mobile payments startup Karri has partnered with Nedbank for the launch of its app, which facilitates payments for school activities and events.
The Karri app is directed at parents, teachers and schools, and aims to alleviate the inconveniences of paying for all types of school activities, such as civvies days, school trips and other fundraising activities.
Parents can send money securely to their child’s school at the click of a button, while Karri also has built-in reminder, calendar and transaction history functionalities. Through the app parents can keep up-to-date with events that a child needs to take part in and pay accordingly.
For schools, using Karri will help eliminate collecting, counting and banking cash. It reduces time spent on administrative tasks by teachers, and allows for an overview of all monies being transacted for events throughout the year.
“At Nedbank we encourage people to see money differently by taking advantage of new innovations such as the Karri App that free up valuable teaching time and will take away the hassle of paying for those urgent payments,” says Thomas Muller, Nedbank business banking head of digital innovation.
“This in line with Nedbank’s commitment to ensuring ease of banking anywhere, anytime, and making safer money transactions possible, and ultimately delivering convenience for the benefit of our clients.”
Karri app is available for download from the iStore or Google Play Store.
