Bruno’s Barbers has partnered with Globe myBusiness, the micro, small, and medium enterprise arm of Globe Telecom, to provide GCash option in all its branches nationwide.The partnership reinforces Globe myBusiness’ move to focus on the personal wellness sector by providing relevant digital solutions to help businesses become more competitive. It has preexisting partnerships with businesses in the food and retail industries.“In the age of omni-channel retail and servicing, we want to provide solutions that can digitize the way businesses in the Philippines do transactions,” said Derrick Heng, senior advisor of Globe myBusiness. “Having Bruno’s Barbers on board allows us to engage Filipinos to the digital ecosystem that we envision.

With over 50 percent of the country’s population using the smartphone, GCash is poised to be the future of payment in the Philippines, thus it is working on its mass adoption. This scheme slowly eliminates the fears and doubts of many Filipinos when using a mobile phone and online monetary exchanges. It also provides an option in addition to the usual cash, debit, or credit card transactions that most customers use for payments.
