Physical money, understood as bills and coins, is on the way towards extinction. And this is even acknowledged by prestigious institutions like The European Payments Council, who claims that “the 360 billion euros cash transactions, done yearly in the European Union, cost at least €50 billion euros per year” making the use of physical money pretty expensive.

And physical money will only turn out to be more and more expensive every year, mostly because of the increased counterfeit measures it needs. As technology for 3D scanning and printing progresses every year, countries like the United States and Germany need to include additional security features in their bills and coins; otherwise they will be overrun by illegal money.

Adding up to all of this factors, the information technologies and the expansion of Internet access, have created an almost perfect environment for the proliferation of electronic money. Credit cards, debit cards, electronic transactions and even e-currency, become more and more common every day. In this virtual economy, someone needs to recheck and protect the fidelity and legality of all this loose virtual money. This complex task is filled with predicaments. It is difficult and it requires a high degree of technical proficiency and quality.

Cambodian technological savvy makes the use of electronic money safe


This is precisely what the Cambodian electronic and mobile pay company Cambo Pay Co., Ltd. does for a living.

Furthermore, Cambo Pay does two vital things for any company that prides themselves as followers of the Total Quality Culture: they are socially responsible and they believe in customer satisfaction and customer support approach.

This customer support is controlled via their own web page, offering online chat and video chat, as well as providing several other more traditional ways to contact them.

Concerning the social responsibility Cambo Pay has decided to return to the community in which they do business, some of the benefit they have achieve through their hard, diligent work. And they do this by contributing funding, under the name of Mr.Tran Tri Manh (Cambo Pay Chairman and CEO) the activities of the NGO Operation Smile Cambodia, an NGO dedicated to provide free medical treatment for kids born with the genetic defect of the cleft lip and palate.

It is for their unyielding commitment towards excellence in one of key fields of the modern economy, electronic money and electronic payment management, that Business Initiative Directions has awarded Cambo Pay with the BID Quality Award, in recognition to their continuous improvement, social responsibility management and customer satisfaction policies, proving once more, that excellence and quality are a foundation stone for business success.
