November 29, 2016 12:00pm



PLDT Global participated in the 6th OFW and Family Summit last November 15, 2016. Amil Azurin, VP and Head of Global Solutions for PLDT Global, shared how its digital solutions, SmartLife Global, Smart World Store, and Juana Chat, can help Filipinos not only stay connected to their loved ones while in a different country, but also assist them in managing their finances and in continuing their government contributions while overseas.


“Our team is here today to help our Overseas Filipinos fulfill their #BalikbayanGoals through technology – which is to stay connected with their family back home, to save money while working abroad, and to invest in the right business in preparation for your eventual return back home,” said Mr. Azurin.


He emphasized that with the SmartLife Global app, the OFWs can ensure that their hard earned income goes through the proper channels, for example, they can easily pay for their family’s household bills, load their own and their loved ones’ Smart Philippine SIMs online as well as continue paying for their SSS, PhilHealth and Pag-ibig contributions securely while they are overseas.


SmartLife Global is the first payment, perks and entertainment app for Filipinos worldwide. Filipinos can continue their government contributions like SSS, Pag-Ibig, PhilHealth and pay their utility bills like PLDT, Meralco, Maynilad, Smart, Cignal and more, through its payments facility that boasts of the lowest transaction fee of $1 per transaction. What’s more, the app also allows users to watch their favorite Pinoy movies, listen to current OPM jams, and browse through magazines like FHM, Yes!, Cosmo and more, free for the first 30 days. After 30 days, users can extend their trial period for only $2.99 per month for music and $4.99 per month for OPM jams and $2.99 per magazine issue.


Filipinos overseas, can likewise have easy access to an online shop, Smart World Store (SWS), that will enable them to send gifts to their loved ones in the Philippines, and also give them the opportunity to start their own small business through its eload dispensing tool.


 “With the SmartLife Global app and Smart World Store, siguradong safe and secure ang contributions ‘nyo at mapupunta ang perang pinaghirapan sa mga mas importanteng bagay,” he concluded.
