THE Provincial Government of Pampanga led by Governor Dennis “Delta” Pineda received an automated payment machine from Narvacan, Ilocos Sur Mayor Luis Chavit Singson during its launching on Wednesday, September 30.
The wifi and satellite-powered Intelligent Payment Machine (IPM) aims to provide safer and more convenient financial transactions, including paying bills and government dues, buying load credits, transferring and withdrawing money especially to those who are in the upland and coastal areas that have limited access to these services.
Pineda welcomed the development for the province to promote contactless transactions under the new normal.
“Maraming salamat sa assistance. Tiyak na makakatulong ito para mas mapabilis ang mga transactions natin sa probinsya ng Pampanga,” he said.
Singson, who is also the President of the League of Municipalities in the Philippines, personally visited the province to turn over the unit and encourage Kapampangans to use the machine for their convenience in the face of the global health crisis.
“Dahil tulong natin ito sa ating mga kababayan, tinanggal natin ang convenience fee. Through this machine, makakabayad sila sa SSS (Social Security System), GSIS (Government Service Insurance System), NBI (Nationa Bureau of Investigation), eskwelahan, at iba pa. Pwede rin magpadala ng pera. Diyan na lang sila pupunta hindi na sila iikot para makapagtransact,” Singson said.
To help the provincial government, Singson pledged to provide each municipality at least two units of the IPM machine. (PR)
