DigiBankASIA and Xebia announced on March 1, 2021 a strategic partnership for the launch of Asia’s new digital bank UNObank. The full-service digital bank is working with the regulators for the pilot launch in the Philippines.

Xebia will be UNO’s digital and innovation technology partner in further developing UNO’s digital-first platform Cognito by integrating with leading banking products to build a differentiated and innovative digital foundation. It is well geared towards developing a modern and intelligent CX platform for UNObank with its expertise in design thinking led digital transformations and a passion for using radical technologies such as AI/ML, IoT, AR/VR, Cloud, DevOps, Big Data and Analytics.
“We have found a hi-tech engineering partner in Xebia whose approach aligns well with UNObank’s objective of an highly personalized, AI-first, fully composable, cloud native, full stack digital bank,” UNO co-founder and chief executive officer Manish Bhai. UNO co-founder and chief technology officer Puneet Gupta said, “UNO’s AI-first capabilities mean that it is highly adaptable and completely customer-centric -a great example of what a truly composable banking stack should be.”
“Each user will experience the bank as if it were uniquely designed around their needs,” Gupta continued. “That’s the power of an AI first, all cloud, fully digital user journey based orchestrated platform.”
What UNO is envisioning is both pioneering and inspiring, according to Xebia chief digital officer Rajat Gupta. He said, “We are excited to be partners in realizing UNO’s vision by leveraging our design thinking, domain expertise and an AI-first approach to build industry leading, micro personalized digital banking experiences with rapid innovation cycles for true customer delight.”
