Filipinos can now pay over 1,000 types of bills and perform other financial transactions practically anywhere using the new version of the Bayad Center App. Bayad Center, in partnership with leading software solutions firm, MultiSys, recently launched the payment app in a bid to make digital financial services even more accessible, and promote cashless payments for consumers to make payments easily and securely via their mobile phones.
According to Manny L. Tuason, President and CEO of CIS Bayad Center, Inc., the new version of the app offers a more convenient way of settling one’s obligations. “Together with MultiSys, we are able to transform our bills payment app into a next-generation payment app where anyone can pay not only their bills, but even their government contributions, loan payments, professional license fees, even traffic violation tickets, in the comfort of their homes,” Mr. Tuason shares.
The new version of the Bayad Center App introduces additional features such as sending and receiving of mobile load and fund, payments via QR code, plus additional security features like fingerprint scanning, 4-digit MPIN, and one-time PIN (OTP) verification.
Mr. Tuason adds that their collaboration with MultiSys will continue as the app is set to add new services combining the different ride-hailing, food & parcel delivery, lodging & vehicle rental, and even travel booking apps, into one lifestyle super app.
The Bayad Center App is now available both on the App Store for iOS users and Google Play Store for Android users.
MultiSys CEO David Almirol Jr. says that their company aims to bring innovative and creative systems solutions to the Philippines to boost technology adoption in different sectors of the country. Earlier, the company announced the eight priority sectors for the rollout of its software technology services, namely: information technology, government, healthcare, utilities, hospitality, retail, banking and finance, and the academe.
“We want to empower users by giving them the freedom to make payments whenever and wherever they want. Backed by our industry partners such as Bayad Center, we will continue to develop innovative and easy-to-use digital solutions that will provide convenience to more Filipinos,” says Almirol.
In November 2018, PLDT invested P2.15 billion in MultiSys to achieve the telco provider’s goal of becoming a full-scale digital services provider.
