With its continuing thrust in widening its customer touch points while adapting to the various paying habits of its customers, Bayad Center is determined to make bills payment even more convenient for every paying Filipino with its latest mobile app.
Complementing its more than 12,000 payment locations nationwide, Bayad Center, the country’s premier payment solutions provider, creates yet another breakthrough as it extends its footprints to the rapidly growing market that is now mobile. “Everyone wants everything to be simple. The BC Mobile is just that. It puts together in one app all your payment needs, no bells and whistles – it sends you a reminder for your due dates, it shows you the nearest Bayad Center branches and Authorized Partners, and it allows you to pay all your bills on the fly. No need to enroll in different online payment sites, because BC Mobile carries under its umbrella the string of billing partners, and the seal of service and reliability that Bayad Center offers,” says Wendell Kristian P. Labre, CIS Bayad Center Inc.’s Marketing Head.
As a one-stop online shop for all your bills payment needs, Bayad Center Mobile App removes the need to fill out forms and mail bills on a monthly basis. It allows you to pay your bills anytime, anywhere using your mobile phone.
“Aside from its Bills Payment feature, the online app has a Bill Reminder feature to ensure that we get notified of Due Dates, helping us manage our finances better. You can easily customize the notifications based on what is most financially convenient for you,” Labre adds.
Another game-changing component of the app is the Branch Locator, where you can find the nearest Bayad Center in your area with just a tap away. “For most of us who are always online yet still prefer paying over-the-counter or face-to-face, the branch locator shows you the list of Bayad Center branches, authorized partners, collecting agents and automated payment machines near you,” Labre emphasizes.
Both the Branch Locator and the Bill Reminder features are available even when you’re offline.
In terms of online payment security, Bayad Center adheres with quality standards to protect the consumer’s data and online payment information.
The BC mobile app has a unique system that allows users to securely make payments online without the risk of exposing your financial information. You can either use credit, debit card or PayPal to pay your bills in the application.
Similar to Bayad Center branches nationwide, the mobile app will soon offer remittance or money transfer services, prepaid loading and selling of Instasurance. It aims to provide innovative initiatives to keep up with the modern times.
Bayad Center Mobile App will soon be tied up with Bayad Center’s Loyalty Program which will also be launched this year. It will also have features such as Bills Payment Management, where users can view payment history across different payment channels, and Crowd Sourcing Tools, where you can log in, comment, and provide information that will help others identify branches that have lesser queues, and the like.
Brand Ambassadors Bayad Center Mobile App has recently unveiled its brand ambassadors last March 13 at Ballroom B, Marco Polo Hotel: influential motoring journalist, blogger and TV host James Deakin and actress-model Max Eigenmann as Judith.
Through a contract signing attended by CIS Bayad Center SVP and COO Francispito P. Quevedo, and President and CEO Manuel L. Tuason, the two celebrities expressed their excitement in being part of the campaign.
“Anything that puts the paying public in first priority gets my support,” James Deakin said. “With Bayad Center Mobile App, Filipinos now have a hassle-free and more secure way of paying their bills in just a few taps. I think the world is prepared for something as important as this.”
Max Eigenmann, on the other hand, will serve as the brand’s online and offline persona, and will be portraying Judith—a pun on the term “due date.” Keen on changing the way we give meanings to due dates, Eigenmann looks forward to inspiring Filipinos to make intelligent choices in their everyday life, including bills payment. “I want to be there in every step of the way, helping the public to manage their finances and make everyday transactions easier and more convenient, because that’s what Bayad Center Mobile App is all about: it makes bills payment hassle-free.”
