"With DBS MAX, our operations have become more efficient as less cash handling is required daily. Coupled with the high adoption rate of scan and pay amongst our customers, the benefits of this end-to-end digital solution allows us to focus less on day-to-day operations and more on strategic expansion. Additionally, the mobility of DBS MAX facilitates easy set up at pop-up events which we participate in regularly."

Lim Wei Jie, Director
Happy Fish Swim School Pte Ltd
"Before DBS MAX, our usual mode of payment was via bank transfers or cash. MAX allows payments to be collected instantly and going cashless makes it easier for our staff. With less banking to deal with, we can focus to provide more service, more smile to our customers."'

Jay Tan, Director
