The City of Paranaque tapped leading software solutions company Multisys Technologies Corporation to give its online services a boost amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

The initiative is in line with City Ordinance Number 2020-05 or the Electronic and Online Payment Collection System, which aims to provide Paranaque residents and businesses with cashless, contactless, and paperless transactions with the city ​​local government unit (LGU).

Citizens and businesses in Paranaque can now pay their business taxes online, from the comfort of their home or office, via the Paranaque Business Permits and Licensing System. In the coming months, payments for property tax, local civil status, community tax certificate (CEDULA), permits, health certificates and other government requirements will also be available in the system.

In addition, the City has also fortified its Contactless Apprehension Site, which will soon include various online payment options for motorists with Notices of Violation (NOV). Motorists simply type in their license plate number or driving sticker to check or check for any traffic violations. The actual NOV will be delivered and once received, the infringer will have the option to pay said violation fee online via the electronic payment service “Multipay”.

Paranaque Town Mayor Edwin Olivarez said the LGU also plans to set up kiosks in designated areas of City Hall, various government offices such as barangay halls and private establishments.

Olivarez added that the LGU is undertaking this initiative to make payment transactions safer, more convenient and accessible.

“One of our top priorities in 2021 is to move citizen and government transactions online, not just because of the looming dangers from the pandemic, but because we believe we need to adapt to changing of the times – to do things efficiently, save money and provide convenience. We hope our constituents will use these technologies that we now offer and we are confident that we will receive their usual support,” Olivarez said.

Over the past few years, Paranaque’s new technology partner for this initiative, MultiSys, has demonstrated expertise in advancing the transformation of various cities and municipalities into a smart city. Its Smart City project is a flagship program launched in 2019 to help LGUs and government agencies deliver convenient and efficient online services to everyone. It is set to deploy similar technologies in more than 50 LGUs nationwide.
