ZAMBOANGA CITY -- The Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) is set to open three more GSIS Wireless Automated Processing System (G-W@PS) kiosks to better serve the public in this city.

Rolando Macasaet, GGIS chairman and OIC president, announced that the three additional G-W@PS kiosks will be located at a shopping mall in Barangay Tetuan and in Barangay Vitali in the east coast and Barangay Ayala in the west coast.

Macasaet, who is a Zamboangueño, said Saturday the establishment of the additional three G-W@PC kiosks will expand the service of the agency to its clientele since there will be already a total of six kiosks.

The three existing G-W@PS kiosks are located in Barangay Sangali, Integrated Bus Terminal in Barangay Divisoria and at City Hall.

Macasaet said GSIS members and pensioners can apply for loan, check their records or even update their accounts, as well as activate the UMID compliant eCards through the G-W@PS kiosks.

The G-W@PS Kiosk was developed by the GSIS and made use of a combination of world-class technologies, such as radio frequency identification, biometrics, and virtual private network to come up with a secure system that can perform remote processing in a paperless manner.

The G-W@PS Kiosk resembles an Automated Teller Machine (ATM) that has a touch screen monitor, but, it is not an ATM since it does not dispense money.
