MANILA, Philippines – State-owned Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) has begun the roll-out of its additional Wireless Automated Processing System (GW@PS kiosks), starting with 32 government offices in Metro Manila and nearby provinces.
Robert Vergara, GSIS president and general manager said that a total of 500 kiosks will be deployed across the country in division offices of the Education Department, provincial capitols, city halls and government agencies.
“More kiosks spell greater convenience for our more than 1.7 million members and pensioners,” he said.
With the kiosk, members can check their records and apply for service loans by using their eCards “without need to go to GSIS offices … thus saving them time and money for travel expense.”
As part of the first batch of deployment, kiosks will be installed in the Office of the President, both Houses of Congress and the Supreme Court as well as the provincial capitols of Batangas, Bulacan, Laguna, and Rizal.
On Monday, GSIS will unveil a GW@PS kiosk at the General Santos city hall with Mayor Darlene Antonino-Custodio.
Kiosks will also be deployed in the main offices of: Department of Education; Department of Foreign Affairs; Department of Justice; Commission on Audit; Commission on Elections; Land Registration Authority; Land Bank of the Philippines; National Bureau of Investigation; Office of the Court Administrator; Philippine General Hospital; and Philippine National Police.
Other recipient offices include the University of the Philippines-Diliman and divisions of the Department of Education in Manila, Quezon City, Bulacan, Cavite and Rizal.
Vergara said the initial 32 kiosks will serve more than 140,000 members in these offices. more
