If there is one thing that this COVID-19 Pandemic has taught us, it is the sudden need to shift to cashless transactions. Being the safest way to do business, at least for the meantime. This led us to be dependent with online banking, eCommerce platforms like Lazada, and eWallets like PayMaya. With the increased demand, banks are devising their own eWallet platforms, and RCBC’s DiskarTech is one of them.
Dubbed as a “Taglish Super App”, DiskarTech is an all-around eCommerce app that has a digital savings account (with up to 3.25% interest per annum and no initial deposit or maintaining balance) and an eWallet feature that lets you send money to family and friends and pay bills. To make itself different from other eWallet apps out there, DiskarTech has a #BuhayGinhawa savings tracker that guides users on how they can set and attain their financial goals.
In addition, DiskarTech has a unique Telemedicine feature built within the app. For approximately Php 800 annually, users can avail of a healthcare package from iDoc where they can avail of off-site medical consultation and assistance from doctors—a useful feature especially in this time of the new normal.
Aside from these features, RCBC plans to add more features to DiskarTech such as microinsurance and skills marketplace for enterprising Filipinos.
