BANK South Pacific (BSP) Financial Group Ltd wants small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs) to use its digital platforms.
BSP retail general manager Daniel Faunt mentioned this during a demonstration session of the BSP Pay platform.
He said using digital platforms would increase an SMEs’ customer base.

The only information required is the customer information file (CIF) number (BSP ID) and a registered mobile number.
The event was attended by SME owners and a BSP team to provide information and registration of the digital banking platforms.
“Due to the Covid-19, many businesses, especially SMEs, are slowing down, stepping back and re-shaping their business model,” Faunt said.
“BSP is taking this time to empower small-to-medium enterprises through this event to apt digital strategies to help accelerate your resilience and competitive advantage in the local and also global marketplace.
“BSP Digital banking is more than just taking your business online.
“It is the idea that fully expands business and increase customer base not only locally but also globally via the BSP Internet Payment Gateway.”
