As a result of the BGS - Remax Distributorship Agreement, RII recently attended a technical training on a payment system held at the BGS Headquarters in Vienna, Austria.

Present at the training were REMAX Business Solutions Senior Consultant Gabby Miras and REMAX Professional Services Manager Marcelo Sia. Other trainees present were partners of BGS from other countries such as Slovenia, Libya, Egypt and India.

The DUET Training 2002 was a hands-on training on the smartcard-based payment software Version 4.6. Among the topics discussed were the software's systems requirements, the relationship between its entities, its security features, the software's architecture and its users.

DUET or Direct Universal Electronic Transactions, is a versatile instrument to develop smartcard-based payment systems. DUET system technology makes it possible to execute payment transactions in on or offline mode without requiring authentication from a third party and incorporates state-of-the-art technologies in the field of smart-card solutions.

According to Mr. Miras, the introduction of the DUET System in the Philippines is an appropriate solution to the current economic situation. "70-75% of an account holder's cash goes into his / her pocket most of the time. This creates a blind spot in the banking business. DUET's vision is to enable the account holder to keep their money in the bank and at the same time maintain his/ her purchasing power through its highly secured and cost effective system. In this way, the money kept in the bank will be properly utilized to enable the bank to provide better generation of interest and better loans helping in keeping our economy alive."

The DUET System and REMAX are set to initially tap both commercial and rural banks in the country. Indeed, it would be beneficial for REMAX and BGS to venture into this kind of endeavor as this product does not only cater to the high-end market but it also helps in empowering the small to medium size markets.
