In May this year, the Bank announced the deployment of the innovative Robotic Process Automation (RPA) technology in its operations; a first in the Nigerian Banking industry. In the first phase of RPA deployment at the Bank, the reconciliation of Automated Teller Machine (ATM) transactions has been automated, resulting in the reconciliation of ATM transactions within 0.1% of the time it took previously. This has resulted in faster resolution of ATM dispense error issues in the instances when they occur.

Also, with the new technology in place, employees are better able to focus on other value adding and customer related functions, significantly improving the overall quality of customer experience.

In 2017, the Bank unveiled a wide bouquet of digital banking platforms including an upgraded version of its mobile banking app – UnionMobile and *826#, the unique USSD code which allows customers perform banking transactions through shortcode messaging on their mobile phones. Several innovative features of the UnionMobile App, including the industry first ‘Agent Locator’ and ‘Locate an ATM with Cash’ have received wide acclaim since their introduction.
Union Bank continues to leverage innovation and technological advancement as it delivers on its promise of being a truly simpler and smarter bank.
