Making your financial services and payment solutions work this post-pandemic recovery on the 17th Episode of Thought Leadership Series


According to an article from PR Newswire, “with a population of more than 100 million people, the Philippines is one of the more economically-resilient countries in Southeast Asia amid the pandemic, and among the drivers of this resiliency is its shift towards digital payments.”

The said data leaves us to seek answers on the questions, how successful brands do differently in building financial services and payment models to drive profitability and win in retail operations? How data technology ecosystems have force-multiplied shopping experience value for merchants, retailers, and consumers? How to build and foster stronger consumer relationships through transforming financial services and payment architecture to increase sales conversion?

In the Philippine Retailers Association (PRA) 17th episode of its Thought Leadership Series, leaders from the country’s undisputed #1 e-wallet, Gcash will be sharing the vitality of having an immersive and revolutionary financial services and payments to deliver a personalized customer experience that drives revenue.
