Get extra protection vs scams with GCash Send Money Protect

In a recent study conducted in November 2023, it was revealed that the Philippines has become the epicenter of scams in Southeast Asia. This was a result of the rapid increase in digital finance app users. To protect its customers from fraud, the country’s leading finance superapp, GCash, in collaboration with Chubb, the world’s largest publicly traded property and casualty insurance company, is now offering customers an added layer of protection through the ‘Send Money Protect’ or ‘SMP’ feature in the GCash app. The SMP feature provides coverage should users become affected by the top three major scams, namely online shopping fraud, social engineering, and account takeover, when they send money via Express Send. For only P30 per month, or P1 a day, customers will be able to send money worry-free to all users for 30 days. 

The partnership, which was inked recently by GCash and New York Stock Exchange-listed Chubb (NYSE: CB), now brings the Philippines’ first and most complete integrated fraud coverage when sending money via a digital wallet. This latest product covers users up to P15,000 in case they get scammed. 

SMP is an optional product that covers all of the users’ Express Send money transfers to all GCash accounts for 30 days. It can be availed by following three easy steps when sending money: first, ensure the Send Money Protect box is checked in the Express Send transaction screen. After which, tap the pop-up screen to confirm, and lastly, proceed to finish the Express Send transaction, which is now protected with SMP.

“Digital transactions have become an essential part of Filipinos’ daily lives. At GCash, we make sure to be relentless in strengthening cybersecurity measures against scammers, fraudsters, and other cyber criminals. With SMP, we allow our users to have an extra layer of protection against threats,” said Winsley Bangit, vice president and group head for New Businesses.

Online shopping is one of the most prevalent scams in this day and age, wherein a user is tricked into making a GCash Express Send money transfer to purchase an item or service online from a third party for personal use. But later on, the victim discovers that the website or trading platform is fraudulent.

More than fake sellers, SMP also covers losses arising from social engineering, wherein scammers attack users by deceiving them into opening emails, instant messages, text messages, and websites from entities or people who are seemingly trusted or known to force users into transferring funds via the GCash Express Send money transfer feature. 

SMP also provides coverage for users who fall victim to account takeovers, wherein a third party gains unauthorized access to a GCash account and then makes unauthorized Express Send money transfers. These are usually the result of phishing, spyware, or malware scams.

“While due diligence is needed in making sure that online transactions are legitimate, we hope this brings more confidence to all knowing that you are covered in case you become a victim of fraud,” added Bangit.

By providing a safety net against unforeseen events, SMP contributes significantly to the financial well-being of users, in line with GCash’s vision of finance for all.

“Rest assured that our customers’ funds and accounts are safe with us, especially as we continue to deploy the latest trust and security technologies. But with SMP, they can choose to have added protection against the most common scams,” said Jay Young, head of GInsure.

Yondu commits to more innovations and partnerships to support PH businesses

Technology matters now more than ever. When the pandemic struck, many businesses struggled to cope with the sudden shift to digitalization amidst physical restrictions. Currently, the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) is pushing for MSME digitalization and innovation as 60% of jobs in the country come from the sector.

Yondu, the top IT solutions company wholly owned by Globe, enables the digitalization of businesses with its holistic solutions, innovations, and different partnerships. The company enables its clients to navigate into the new digital economy through more affordable services.

Ryan Paguio, who oversees BFSI (banking, financial services, and insurance) as Yondu’s Vice President for Enterprise Solutions, emphasized the importance of adapting to the situation and noted that Yondu aspires to build a partnership with clients who offer use-cases relevant to their business journey. In turn, Yondu provides them with expertise.

Yondu was quick to address the challenges of the pandemic through its innovations. It also helped companies build resilient, safe, and productive work environments through new technological tools that enable workers to deliver KPIs even from home.

Among the sectors Yondu helped was the BFSI sector which they provided with expertise in pivoting key resources, processes, systems/applications, and workflows such that digitalization can be pursued by these institutions in the manner best-suited vis a vis current state, regulatory compliance, legacy systems, among others. Yondu also offers expert services, managed services, custom development, and software factory to business owners to improve their IT resources.

For retail and manufacturing industries, Yondu provided eCommerce solutions including all features of a digital storefront and the integration of payment gateways and delivery channels.

The company also developed an eCommerce platform called Vessell to help business owners with limited budgets. It includes a mobile app packaged with a web app, omnichannel eCommerce integration and management, and a rewards and e-raffle capability for marketing.

UnionBank celebrates 40 years: Innovating and empowering Filipino businesses Holds Future Forward Awards for Clients

The Aboitiz-led Union Bank of the Philippines has always been at the forefront of embracing and pioneering innovations in the banking sector. It has consistently pushed for developments in mobile banking and the expansion of digital channels.  Among the many firsts for the Bank are: the first among its peers to start a bank website; spearhead online banking; launch the country’s first electronic savings account (EON), introduce the first chatbot, implement the first fully-digital account opening, and fully-digital branch called The Ark, to name a few.

UnionBank recognizes the value of nurturing relationships with partners like corporations and micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) who continue to stay, believe, and remain working together with the Bank through the years. As part of its celebration of its 40th anniversary, UnionBank recently held an appreciation event, the Future Forward Awards for its partners. 

As UnionBank President and CEO Edwin R. Bautista shared, “Our success today has been a product of our co-creation efforts, looking ahead into the future and preparing for the evolution of banking. “Together, we can be future forward and leap to being a bank of enduring greatness.”

Moving Future Forward

The Future Forward Awards acknowledged the vision, dedication, and hard work of partners who supported and closely collaborated with UnionBank for the design and successful execution and implementation of the Bank’s digital business solutions. 

There were three main award categories: 

Steadfast is an award given to long-time clients of UnionBank who became supporters and partners of the Bank’s innovative quests. Recipients were recognized as having been vital to growing the bank’s core transaction banking business over time, paving the way for its digital transformation. The awardees include both a leading bookstore/office supplies chain and a pioneering laser-printing/paper copying technology company. 

The Pathfinder award was given to Corporate and MSME clients who collaborated closely with the Bank for it to be able to create and refine its business solution products, which then became instrumental for these clients’ financial growth. Among the winners of this award are a leading pharmacy chain and an active community of mothers/entrepreneurs.

Finally, the Trailblazer, is an award for digital forward thinkers. Just like UnionBank, they are clients who think out of the box, find new ways to engage customers, grow their enterprise, and improve their business processes. These awardees are role models to other companies of what it means to innovate in the digital age. Recipients of the award such as the country’s premier micropayments service and a multinational investment/financial services company, all built their ecosystems with UnionBank’s solutions and integrated their services with the Bank. They are committed to building a future driven by growth and innovation. 

“No matter the size or scope of their business, one common denominator among all awardees is the dedication to ingenuity and progress,” said Bautista. “These businesses are the ones with the vision to shape what the future could be. We couldn’t be prouder to work with them.”

Innovation never stops

UnionBank’s digital transformation is an ongoing journey, continuously raising the bar with the end goal of improving customer experience and operational efficiencies.  During the event, UnionBank highlighted one of its game changing product Unified Payments and Collections Solution, also known as UPAY for Business. 

UPAY was created with the vision of helping enterprises offer complete payment channels to its customers. UPAY provides a complete suite of payment channels that clients may integrate with, made more simpler, housed under one platform. The UPAY platform can even track payments until these get settled to a business account and tagged as paid in its system. 

“It doesn’t just make the payment process easier for business,” clarified Samantha Lacorte, Vice President and Product Owner, UPAY for Business. “Clients now have a wider range of choices when settling their payments. They also get added peace of mind with real-time confirmation and settlement of their transactions in a breeze.”

Overall, UPAY creates a payment experience that is beneficial for both payee and payor –something that captures the spirit of innovation crucial to UnionBank. 

Client partners can continue to look forward to more UPAY features that leverage the InstaPay Person-to-Biller feature coming soon! This will enable scanning a QR code to quickly pay bills and invoices in real-time. 

For UnionBank, the possibilities are endless, the recipients of the awards are testaments to how close partnerships can result to business growth. Congratulations to all Future Forward winners!

The Best of Old and New with the HUAWEI WATCH GT3 Pro

Combining futuristic smartwatch technology with timeless heirloom watch traditions


Manila, Philippines 12 July 2022 — The HUAWEI WATCH GT3 Pro, a smartwatch for elite users, is yet another genius product from the tech giant. As a labor of love and inspiration from HUAWEI’s best and brightest engineers, the HUAWEI WATCH GT3 Pro is the apex smartwatch in the market for both exquisite craftsmanship and cutting-edge fitness technology. This is because, as other brands stray further and further away from the original purposes of a watch, HUAWEI honors the history of watch-craft by combining the best of old and new with the HUAWEI WATCH GT3 Pro.

Many brands seem to have forgotten that beyond telling us the time, watches have always served as status symbols and heirlooms, but not HUAWEI. The HUAWEI WATCH GT3 Pro comes in two neoclassic designs – the 46mm Titanium Edition for men and the 43mm Ceramic Edition for women. The 46mm features a sapphire glass face and titanium frame in hard lines and geometric cuts. The 43mm features nano-tech ceramic material in elegant and fashionable curves. Both designs include rotating crowns and a chessboard UX, completing the premium look with beautiful details. Luxury-grade polishing elevates the HUAWEI WATCH GT3 Pro to a work of art. It retains the very best features of heirloom watch traditions, avoiding the clunky and rubbery appearances of most smartwatches. It inspires both excellence and elegance.

From dominating the boardroom to climbing the tallest mountains, the elite user is always ready to go hard and fast with the HUAWEI WATCH GT3 Pro. Behind the crystalline sapphire veneer is a relentless HUAWEI machine at work, featuring revolutionary health management with advanced algorithms and outdoor workout training for ultimate performance.

The HUAWEI WATCH GT3 Pro supports ECG data collection and HUAWEI TruSeen 5.0+ for top-of-the-line health data reports with real-time analysis. This means revolutionary all-day heart rate monitoring, SpO2 monitoring, sleep and stress monitoring, and more. The HUAWEI WATCH GT3 Pro can even pair with most smartphones, boasting system-agnostic flexibility with HMS, GMS, and iOS compatibility for data sharing and organization. Across countless health measurement options, users also enjoy unparalleled personalization options on the HUAWEI Health App, to prioritize data items and health reminders they most care about like sleep scheduling, mindful positivity, water intake, and exercise volume.

With over 100+ workout modes, including a specialized freediving mode and golf driving range mode, the HUAWEI WATCH GT3 Pro takes the measure of every movement with amazing accuracy. Indoor or outdoor, the HUAWEI WATCH GT3 Pro can measure your workout from machine and free training to cross-country running, skiing, and open water swimming for ultimate performance. With the dual-band five-system GNSS, the HUAWEI WATCH GT3 Pro offers equally incredible navigation services like offline and Route Back Navigation with whole-globe location tracking.

By combining the best of old and new, HUAWEI achieves an unmatched smartwatch ideal with the HUAWEI WATCH GT3 Pro. As other brands focus on making the most futuristic watch, HUAWEI focuses on making one that’s timeless. Always beautiful, always relevant, and always premium – get the HUAWEI WATCH GT3 Pro here:
