RUNNING out of cash while shopping at Vision City Megamall is now a thing of the past with the installation of two Bank South Pacific automatic teller machines at the shopping centre’s premises.
This was in line with the bank’s roll-out programme to strengthen its position as a bank that “provides convenient, accessible and cost-effective banking solutions”.
RH Trading general manager Ang Cheng Chooi said the partnership between their companies would offer greater convenience to customers as they show their commitment to meeting the needs of today’s busy consumers.
BSP head of retail network Kili Tambua said the expansion of BSP’s ATM network allowed its customers to choose how they bank with BSP – at a time, place and location convenient to them.
“Using a BSP ATM, a customers could check balances, withdraw cash, get phone credits, obtain mini-statements, transfer funds and change PIN,” he said.
Electronic banking transactions were cheaper than transactions performed by a teller in a branch, Tambua said.
These ATMs would also benefit international travellers who may use their MasterCard on the BSP network.
Tambua said BSP’s efforts to extend its ATM network would go a long way towards making ATMs more accessible to customers.
