The city of Paranaque has called on leading software solutions company Multisys Technologies Corporation to boost its online services amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
The initiative complies with Municipal Ordinance number 2020-05 or the Electronic and Online Payment Collection System, which aims to provide residents and businesses of Paranaque with cashless, contactless and paperless transactions with the city ââlocal government unit (LGU).
Paranaque citizens and businesses can now pay their business taxes online, from the comfort of their home or office, thanks to Paranaque’s business permit and license 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 strengthened its contactless apprehension site, which will soon include various online payment options for motorists with notice of violation (NOV). Motorists only have to type in their license plate number or their driving sticker to check or verify possible traffic violations. The actual NOV will be delivered and once received the offender has the option to pay said violation fees online through the âMultipayâ electronic payment system.
Paranaque town mayor Edwin Olivarez said the LGU also plans to set up kiosks in designated areas of the town 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 more accessible.
âOne of our top priorities in 2021 is to move citizen and government transactions online, not only because of the looming dangers of the pandemic, but because we believe we need to adapt to developments. times – to get things done efficiently, save money and provide convenience. We hope that our constituents will use these technologies that we are offering now and we are confident that we will receive their usual support, âOlivarez said.
