Building a Better Normal
The pandemic has rendered our mobility limited, the need to undergo health protocols and the long queues in every establishment has also limited our time. Patiently we submit and wait for our turn. Despite the protocols now being a little permissive, still, we need to be always on guard for the unseen enemy. The pandemic has caught us unprepared. Now that we are aware, that the onset of another virus can happen again at any time, we should be prepared this time.
Connect with us through Contactless Transactions
PIWAD has the best interest of its concessionaires at heart. Our concessionaires’ safety and convenience are one of the district’s primary concerns. Aside from the health and safety controls integrated into our office procedures, the district has developed several contactless service and operation processes. Customer service system innovations were devised to adapt to the new normal and make it better.
