UnionBank awarded seven of its partners for their outstanding contribution to the bank’s digital transformation in an event dubbed as “Partners Appreciation Night” held last August 2. The partners awarded were IBM, Deloitte, Via Appia, Trends & Technologies, SMS GT, Digivation and Questronix.
Now in its second year, UnionBank’s annual appreciation night is intended to show the bank’s gratitude to partner vendors who have elevated the level of engagement from merely vendor-vendee relationship to one of openness, collaboration and agility, as well as shared the bank’s purpose and values of integrity, magis, and ubuntu.
UnionBank’s domain knowledge and expertise in complex financial services as well as access to money and capital markets, combined with your core competencies in specific technologies and ecosystems, have produced not just innovative financial solutions but also unique customer experiences, acknowledged by both domestic and international communities.
– Dr. Justo Ortiz, Chairman, UnionBank
Last year, UnionBank received a multitude of awards for its first fully digital branch called The ARK, its customer service, SME product suite, application programming interface (API) platform, and employee engagement by prestigious award-giving bodies such as The Asset Triple A Digital Awards 2018, Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards 2019, Asian Banking & Finance Retail Banking Awards 2019 and HR Asia Awards 2019. UnionBank recognizes the role played by its partners in its transformation journey that were instrumental in getting these awards.
The Partners Appreciation Night – attended by 34 vendors from the information technology, fintech and SME industries – featured the bank’s digital event registration, digital account opening for PlayEveryday debit card, and an intelligent humanoid service robot soon to be deployed in the bank’s digital branches.
