GCASH bags Mobile Money Transfer Award

11 Nov

GCASH, the flagship mobile commerce brand of Globe Telecom, reaches another milestone in the industry as it won top honors in the world’s first Mobile Money Transfer (MMT) Awards.

GCASH bagged the top award for Best International Mobile Transfer Program category for its GCASH Mobile Money Transfer Hub, an inter-operable platform that allows instant multi-language, multi-currency cross border money transfer from partner financial institutions and mobile money operators (MMO) around the world direct to any Globe mobile phone subscriber in the Philippines. GCASH shared the top recognition in this category with Western Union and won over other foreign telecommunication giants aKos and Banglalink.

“This award is another testament around GCASH’s continued thrust towards innovation around testing new models utilizing our mobile network and related technologies to try and lower the cost of delivering financial services worldwide,” said Rizza Maniego-Eala, President of G-Xchange Inc., the wholly-owned mobile commerce subsidiary of Globe.

The MMT Awards, held at the Mobile Money Transfer Conference and Expo in Dubai last October 25, 2010, celebrates the success of mobile money and the impact that it is having on the lives of end users around the world. GCASH was also a finalist in the Achievement in Financial Inclusion category. The finalists in the prestigious award included some of the biggest and most innovative names in mobile money transfer with Globe, being the only Philippine telco who made it to the finalist roster and eventually bagging one of the top recognitions in this landmark MMT Awards.

The Best International Mobile Transfer Program is another one of GCASH’s biggest citations after breaking into the mobile commerce industry in 2004. Early this year, GCASH announced that it already has a network of 18,000 outlets nationwide. In April, GCASH launched its Domestic Cash Pick-up Service, GCASH Remit, while the fully-personalized and convenient GCASH ATM Card was made available to GCASH’s over 1 million users in October.
