A Shower of Gratitude to Media Friends

To show appreciation for the efforts of friends in media in supporting the Bank’s endeavors, UnionBank held a media appreciation night where members of the media were given a sneak peek at the Bank’s recently one-of-a-kind, pioneering banking branch that aims to provide an innovative and seamless banking experience for clients--The ARK by UnionBank.

As guests stepped into The ARK, located at the Ground Floor of the Insular Life Building in Makati City, they were transported to a place where banking as we know it embarks on a voyage into the future: one that does away with lines and enters the world of touch screen, augmented reality, and digital interaction.

“From the brick-and-mortar branch in Banking 1.0 to today's online banking of Banking 2.0, The ARK is where UnionBank will experiment with Banking 3.0 as we move from transactional spaces to interactional spaces,” says UnionBank President Edwin R. Bautista. “There’s no map to our destination, but our sails are out and the winds are steering us in the right direction.”

The ARK stands as the platform for innovative development and innovative partnerships to flourish.

Instead of having typical tellers, the branch has The ARK Ambassadors on hand, who are specially trained to assist customers through the new digital processes in the Bank as well as answer queries they may have.

“No doubt the next generation is dictating changes upon the banking industry,” says Bautista. “But we also don’t want to isolate clients that have been loyal to us for the past 40 years. We built The ARK so that nobody would get left behind.”

More than 50 media attendees from various print, broadcast and online media platforms were present, which was hosted by TV Host and CNN Philippines broadcast journalist Pinky Webb.

The evening’s celebration centered on the Bank’s recent windfall of awards including Best Digital Bank, Best Universal Bank, Gold Winner for Great Employer of the Year, and Strongest Bank in the Philippines (by Balance Sheet), to name a few.
