FINANCIAL services technology solutions provider Fiserv Inc. announced on September 4 it was selected by the Philippine Veterans Bank (PVB) to help enable the bank’s digital transformation.
The PVB will launch digital banking capabilities for the first time as it focuses on delivering a unified customer experience that spans physical and digital channels, the Brookfield, Wisconsin-headquartered Fiserv said.
“We were confident choosing Fiserv because they have a proven record of successfully launching digital banking capabilities, and we knew they could help us navigate new areas,” Camille Maricelle M. Canullas, PVB senior vice president and information technology group head, said. “We’re putting in place technology that will enable us to better serve existing customers and attract new ones,” Canullas added. “Our staff will have a more comprehensive view of customer relationships, and customers will have access to digital services aligned with how they live and work.”
The private commercial bank owned by Filipino World War II veterans and their heirs will use DigitalAccess from Fiserv for online and mobile banking, extending the customer experience in new ways. DigitalAccess, which will integrate with the bank’s core account processing platform, enables digital onboarding to allow customers to open bank accounts and apply for loans and other banking products without having to visit a bank branch. Additional features include personal financial management tools, online mobile phone top-up capabilities, biometric authentication, actionable push notifications, and automated teller machine and branch location searches.
In the future, as bank customers interact through branch and digital channels, they will be able to get the most up-to-date account information no matter which channels they use.
“To support the growing needs of more mobile and digitally savvy customers, more financial institutions are embarking on the path of digital transformation,” said Marc Mathenz, managing director, Asia Pacific, Fiserv. “Veterans Bank is reinforcing their commitment to serving their customers with their decision to move to new technology that will facilitate interactions across physical and digital channels, allowing the bank to provide seamless financial services to customers.”
