Parañaque City (in the Philippines) has tapped PayMaya Philippines, Inc. to provide digital payment solutions to clients transacting with the City as part of its e-governance initiatives under the new normal. The local government and PayMaya signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) covering a wide range of local government transactions and services.
One of the features of the agreement is enabling clients to use a digitally enabled payment platform to avail of local government services. This includes digital payment of traffic violation fees, real property and business taxes, health, and other miscellaneous accounts. Using a web browser or mobile-based application, transacting party can now easily pay for their personal or business transactions in a more convenient way without physically going to City Hall.
PayMaya said it has been intensifying its efforts in enabling LGU partners to further boost and accelerate digital transformation through its newly launched LGUs Embracing and Accelerating Digitalization (LEAD) Program, which aims to fully equip LGUs with end-to-end cashless payment solutions for better public service.
“As we embrace our digital transformation, we want to enable both businesses and consumers to use digital financial and services platforms as part of their daily routine,” said Atty. Melanie T. Soriano-Malaya, head of the Economic Preservation and Recovery Cluster Covid- 19 Response Team. “This is an opportune time as we undertake inclusive and sustainable digital local government as part of our strategy to defeat COVID-19,”
The City Government spearheaded several online government services in its bid to improve its processes and provide a seamless customer experience. With this MOA signed with PayMaya, the local government is optimistic to further boost the public access to government services.
