Metropolitan Bank & Trust Co. enhanced its Metrobank Mobile Banking facility recently to provide secure, comprehensive, real-time mobile banking services, made available to all telecommunications networks.

Metrobank executive vice president and national branch banking sector head Fabian S. Dee said more and more Filipinos have come to depend on their mobile phones to manage their daily tasks.

“In response to this emerging lifestyle, Metrobank has made major enhancements to its mobile banking facility to cater to the on-the-move individuals of today who require convenience, accessibility, security, and flexibility,” Dee added.

The facility enables users to conduct a myriad of banking transactions such as paying bills, transferring funds, or checking account balance right from the mobile phones, whether the network provider is Globe, Smart or Sun.

One of the breakthrough services of Metrobank is the Versaload, the first-ever universal load facility in the country that enables users to send load via SMS from the user’s Metrobank account to any mobile phone regardless of the telecommunications network.

Unlike other mobile banking services in the market, Versaload does not require GPRS to function except for the initial set up of the application.
