Mayor Celso Lobregat yesterday thanked the Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) for setting up again the Wireless Automated Processing System or G@WAPS kiosk at City Hall Annex Building.
“I am glad to receive this machine. At least our employees will no longer go to GSIS and have their loan applications processed. This will save them time and they don’t have to abandon their work when they apply for loans with GSIS,” Lobregat said in accepting the G@WAPS kiosk on behalf of the 1,700 employees of the city government.

GSIS Trustee Mario Aguja explained that City Hall G@WAPS kiosk is part of the agency’s program under its present leadership to bring its services to the members without having to go to the GSIS office and endure the long queue.

He said the agency is also planning to set up similar kiosk in the provinces of Julu and Tawi-Tawi as it has been observed that government employees in those areas had to travel to Zamboanga to apply for loan with the GSIS.

The G@WAPS is a state-of-the-art machine quipped with radio frequency identification, biometrics, a virtual private network and a secure system where GSIS members can access to and process their records or loans without the rigors of filing-up forms and other documents.

Under the memorandum receipt signed by the chief executive, the city government of Zamboanga undertakes to take care, provide a suitable space and power source and take into foremost considerations its accessibility. — Vic Larato
