eAswaaq Misr, a subsidiary of e-finance for financial and digital investments, has completed the construction and operation of electronic gates for the Giza pyramids area, where 13 modern electronic gates were installed and operated at the two entry points.
Last October, eAswaaq Misr operated the latest electronic systems to digitize the point of sale and ticket system.
This comes within the work of the eAswaaq Misr company to develop ticket systems for 30 archaeological sites, which will be developed and digitized before the end of 2022, provided that they will be made available, respectively, for reservations through the application and the central electronic portal of the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, which is established by eAswaaq Misr.
eAswaaq Misr is preparing to launch the central electronic platform for the Ministry of Tourism to book tickets for archaeological sites electronically by the end of the current year 2021, which is directly connected to the electronic systems related to entering these shrines and which operates with a QR code to scan tickets to facilitate and organize entry operations, and its development allows the reservation to be made available through various electronic means, or through ticket offices that have also been developed, the system also allows cash payment or through credit cards or mobile phone wallets.
