The payment gateway is a shared secure on-line payment that facilitates all Dubai Government departments to conduct electronic payments for the services that are offered online.

The unified online payment gateway achieves substantial cost savings for the department in terms of hardware, software, maintenance and manpower. The Payment gateway gives users the option of making payments by credit card (currently Mastercard and Visa) or e-Dirham card (referred to as Government Client Card).

e-TQM College will be the first online education provider to benefit from ePay, to provide its students with online fee transaction facilities.

Dr. Mansoor Al Awar, director, e-TQM College, said: "The option of online payment of course fees is an important step towards increasing the learner friendliness of the courses on offer. Our objective is to eliminate any obstacles that the learner might face in the pursuit of Total Quality Management skills. We expect that the availability of a reliable online payment option, like ePay, will not only facilitate the studies of our existing learner group, but will also contribute to increasing the reach of our courses to a wider segment of the community."

A dependable and secure system of conducting online fee transactions will be an important factor in the optimisation of the potential of e-Learning and will contribute to the Dubai eGovernment's goal of encouraging online education opportunities that meet global standards.

Salem Al Shair, director eServices, Dubai eGovernment, said: "The decision to extend the services of our e-Payment gateway, ePay, to online payment for e-TQM's courses was largely based on the fact that e-Learning is an important aspect in the development of a community that is increasingly interacting online." The new facility is just one of the many new offerings that e-TQM College have introduced recently. The College launched its own publishing house in November last year and an exclusive club, the Virtual Executive Club, to assist executives and managers by utilising recent developments in tactical and strategic management thinking to improve member's performance in their organisations.
