Visayas and Mindanao Rural Banks attend Mobile Phone Banking Accreditation Training Course

GCASH Training of Visayas and Mindanao Rural Banks

Fourteen representatives from eight rural banks based in the Visayas and Mindanao attended the Mobile Phone Banking Accreditation training and refresher course at the Diamond Suites in Cebu City last September 9.  The training was organized by the United States Agency for International Development-supported Rural Bankers Association of the Philippines-Microenterprise Access to Banking Services (RBAP-MABS) Program and co-sponsored by G-Xchange Inc. (GXI), a wholly-owned subsidiary and the mobile commerce arm of Globe Telecom.

The one-day training focused on the fundamentals of mobile phone banking services utilizing the GCASH platform. Among other essential topics discussed were contingency plans, security controls, reporting and monitoring transactions.

The training is designed for rural banks interested in becoming accredited by GXI to utilize the GCASH platform for mobile phone banking services.  The training helps to ensure that all banks comply with the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas electronic banking standards.
