The group, AS Brydens which is being acquired, also operates in Barbados and Guyana and is expected to boost Sperod’s profit per share, from the majority ownership that they will hold along with others within the Musson Group.

Jamaica’s remittances up again in October

Total remittance inflows climbed a respectable 8.8 percent for an increase of US$24 million to US$296 million, up from US$272 million in 2020.
The increase continues the robust growth remittance inflows enjoyed since May last year. It puts the total inflows for the year to date at US44 million short of the total intake for 2020, when US$2.905 billion was taken in for the year to the end of December. At the pace inflows have grown, the take for the current year could hit a record US$3.5 billion, data released by the Bank of Jamaica is suggesting.

BOJ’s new website

Visitors to Bank of Jamaica’s website will be greeted by a spanking new look that is completely different from the former site.
A brief look and navigation of the site appear to make it easier to navigate the new one compared to the former, with certain information that appears easier to find. The format for some of the information also looks different and, in cases, more appealing form than the previous ones.

JPS slackness

Many Jamaicans have been paying their JPS bills through the MYJPS web portal for years, but the company does not have the decency to advise persons making payments by that method that they are making changes to the system. 
In August, the site was not operational for days, but JPS still charged persons using that system, late fee, although it was not the customers’ fault. In September, the site was operational, but now the site is gone. A call to JPS confirms that they have migrated to a new system; as such, the old information will have to be inputted allover. This is awful customer service.
This is not the approach that the company should take. Clearly, the customers are not important, if they were, they would have been informed and efforts would have been taken to migrate to information over to the new system.
