THE system being installed in Davao City to allow online payment transaction in different districts for local government offices such as City Treasurer's Office and other offices that require collection of payment will be completed soon, Davao City Information and Technology Center (CITC) head
But operating it might take some time since the proposal has not been approved yet.
CITC Office-in-charge Ricarte D. Franco Jr. in an interview with Sun.Star Davao on Wednesday said that their office is almost done with the point of payment system that allows city treasurer's office other agencies to have real time access on different district collection centers in real time.
"It is a software solution for collection. We want different districts different collection centers are connected para real time siya ma-access sa atong point of collection sa office especially the city treasurer," Engr.Franco said.
The CITC developed the system.
He said that they also want to add the access of data for business bureau collection to be up next year.
Franco added that once they are finished with the software they will repair and upgrade the old antennas for every collection point for every district.
"We want it connected soon. For example we have connection with the different districts and here at the center, automatically at real time we can immediately see the collection data. So that is what we want to aspire for us to have online payment. But before we can do that we need to set up our infrastructure," Franco said.
Once the hardware, like the antenna, are all set, then they can upload the program.
He said that the system would benefit the taxpayers because they no longer have to flock to the City Treasurer's Office at the City Hall.
Franco said that this project would cost a lot and that they still do not have the budget for it since the proposal has not yet been approved.
