The DTI Guimaras Provincial Office launched its Online Price Monitoring System (also known as ‘e-Presyo’) on Wednesday that would enable the consuming public to check the prevailing prices of basic necessities and prime commodities.

The launching was attended by consumer groups, retailers, and other business organizations in the province. The application can be downloaded in android smartphones where consumers can readily access when shopping for groceries.

To access the price application, one may visit the e-Presyo page. Android mobile users, on the other hand, may opt to download or install the ‘DTI e-Presyo’ free application available at Google Play.

DTI VI OIC Regional Director Rebecca M. Rascon said that with this development, consumers will be aware of the prevailing prices of basic and prime commodities that would lead them to commercial establishments selling the lowest price of the items they need.

The ‘e-Presyo’ covers a nationwide price data and can be accessed anytime online.

Prices of basic and prime commodities are monitored from grocery stores, supermarkets, wet markets, hardware/construction materials, and flour dealers/distributors. The DTI also monitors school supplies, Noche Buena products and candles on seasonal basis.

The DTI Provincial Offices in Capiz and Iloilo had earlier launched the ‘e-Presyo.’
