Cashless on the Continent – Globasure Agency Banking Solution (GABS)

No Comments

Research conducted by Globasure Technologies Limited, Via Operational Team headed by Mr Ehikioya Okpaireh has shown that almost one in four Brits (23%) has been marooned both at home and at abroad without access to cash. The top causes of being caught cashless at home and especially abroad are:

30% overspent and under-budgeted
30% were a victim of a crime
10% managed to misplace their travel money

Interestingly 60% of those left without money while away were younger travellers, aged under 25, suggesting this group in particular are vulnerable maybe due to inexperience in managing money or as they tend to be greater risk takers than older travellers.

Recognising that travellers can need help at any time, Globasure Technologies Limited came up with an innovation to help their Merchant and customers to be able to have access and make their daily payment anytime, anywhere. This platform is known as: Globasure Agency Banking Solution (GABS).
