MANILA, Philippines - Globe and TM subscribers can now have free access to Bank of the Philippine Islands' Express Mobile app.
From April 30 to August 31, 2014, Globe prepaid and postpaid subscribers will not incur any data charges whenever they log on and transact using the BPI Express Mobile app.
"BPI has always been at the forefront of introducing new channels for our clients to access their accounts conveniently. The BPI Express Mobile app, our latest innovation, is doing very well. Since its re-launch in June last year, it has consistently been the number one downloaded finance app in the country," said SVP Manuel C. Tagaza, Electronic Channels Group Head.
The partnership between Globe and BPI is only natural since both are companies under the Ayala group.
"From offering our subscribers free online services, we want to get more Filipinos online and fully embrace the smartphone and data revolution. With the free access to the BPI Express Mobile app, banking has become easier, more convenient, and definitely more affordable," Daniel Horan, Senior Advisor for Consumer Business at Globe, said.
BPI Express Mobile app allows users to complete banking transactions using their mobile phones in as fast as 30 seconds. They can use the app to pay bills, transfer money to other BPI clients, invest, and reload their prepaid phone.
"The BPI Express Mobile app lets you track your finances conveniently. And when you have a 24/7 view of where your money is going, you can manage it easily and wisely," Tagaza said.
The BPI Express Mobile app can be downloaded from the iTunes App Store, Google Play, and Blackberry App World. Downloading the app itself will accumulate corresponding data charges.
