Regional GCASH Training – VisMin RBs – Sep 09

We are inviting you to participate in a one-day Mobile Phone Banking
Accreditation Training and become part of the increasing number of GCASH
partner rural banks offering mobile phone banking services to their
clients and enjoy the benefits to earn additional fee-based income from
GCASH transactions, cost savings in mobile payment and increase deposit
level through mobile phone banking services.

GCASH is an electronic money platform of Globe Telecom that turns your
cellphone into an electronic wallet. With GCash, Globe and Touch Mobile
subscribers can perform mobile phone banking functions such as deposit,
withdraw, remittance (local and abroad) and other mobile payments through
the use of mobile phone. Through Rural Bankers Research and Development
Foundation, Inc. (RBRDFI) together with RBAP’s Microenterprise Access to
Banking Services (MABS) Program and G-Xchange, Inc. (GXI), subsidiary
company of Globe Telecom the accreditation training will be conducted in
the following area:

Date                           Target Participant RBs        Location
August 25, 2011        Luzon Rural Banks             RBAP Conference Room, Manila
September 09, 2011      VisMin Rural Banks           Diamond Suites, Cebu City

This training focuses on the following objectives:

1)      Accreditation Training – For interested rural banks planning to obtain
accreditation to offer cash-in and cash-out services using the GCASH
platform as well as to apply to the BSP as a bank authorized to offer
mobile phone banking services utilizing the GCash Platform.  This
accreditation training will provide the rural banks with all the BSP
reviewed RBAP-MABS mobile phone banking procedures and manuals required to
fulfill BSP electronic banking requirements for the use of mobile phone
banking services using the GCASH platform.  Note that, as part of the
accreditation process, all banks will still need to get a “no objection”
letter from the Supervision and Examination Sector of the BSP before they
can complete the accreditation process but we will include a proforma
letter in the kit for the banks as part of the training.

2)      Refresher Course – The course will also serve as refresher course for
previously accredited rural banks who are interested in expanding and
receiving an update on the latest mobile phone banking services as well as
to learn some of the “tricks of the trade” from examples of successful
banks and their clients who are now regularly using mobile phone banking
services.

3)      Implementation Training – The course will also provide a how-to
step-by-step guide for banks that plan to initiate mobile phone banking
services.

The training is designed for senior officers (from Marketing,
Compliance/Audit Dept, and/or Operations) that are in the position to
cascade this training and facilitate the implementation of recommended
procedures within the bank. Each bank is allowed to send up to 4
participants.

For more information about G-Cash and mobile phone banking services,
please visit Globe and RBAP’s websites at www.g-cash.com.ph/ and
www.mobilephonebanking.rbap.org respectively.

All interested rural banks must comply individually with the regulatory
requirements set forth by the BSP:

➢        Certification that the bank has complied with the minimum
pre-conditions set forth in circulars 240 and 269 (signed by the President
of the Bank).  Please see checklist of requirements found in the Mobile
Phone Banking Accreditation Kit for more details.
➢        Attended this Accreditation Training.
➢        CAMELS rating of at least 3.0 with no major exceptions noted in
the latest BSP examination.

The training fee is normally priced at P 2,500.00 per participant
inclusive of materials, food and venue. With support from GXI and RBAP’s
MABS, the training fee is reduced to P1,200.00. However, for those who
register and pay at least a week before the event, the early bird fee is
reduced to P1,000.00 per participant. Note that there is a minimum of
