PNB Savings Bank holds ARTspiration 2018, presents innovations inspired by you
Last Saturday, the consumer lending arm of the financial giant Philippine National Bank (PNB), PNB Savings Bank, took over the Open Park of Eastwood Mall in Quezon City, where people of all ages, most notably the youth, came together for a day of great art and great music.
At the bank’s ARTspiration 2018, a live art show, student artists from different universities armed with brushes and acrylic paints drew their aspirations in life on huge blank cubes for everyone to see. The event was open to all, so those who wanted to paint an image of their dream were able to do so.
“This activity as part of our Innovations Inspired by You campaign is PNB Savings Bank’s way of inspiring our fellow Filipinos to not be afraid to pursue their dreams and life goals” Jovencio Hernandez, president of PNB Savings Bank said. Whatever the participants were hoping to achieve — a car, a house, a chance to travel the world — they were free to draw.
The event reached its high point at six in the evening, when a flash mob of tens of young dancers occupied the entire park, showing off peppy dance moves in front of stunned spectators to the tune of the PNB Savings Bank’s theme song, Abot na, Pilipino, which was sung by young, promising artists. The song couldn’t be more fitting; it’s about reaching one’s goals, with help from the bank as it offers new and smart way of banking (Makabagong Pagbabangko).
PNB Savings Bank is constantly transforming its products and services, embracing digital innovations, to provide better customer experience. One of its recent innovations is its fully digital branch, KONEKT.
This branch provides customers with interactive digital banking experiences, equipped with smart digital technologies that simplify banking transactions. Interactive touch screens, self-service kiosks, tablets, full-function automated teller machines (ATM), chatbot, telemedicine kiosk, fun virtual games, the branch has it all. This new hub is located at the Ground Floor ETON Square Ortigas in San Juan City.
Unlike traditional bank branches, this branch has no bank tellers and promotes paperless transaction. Everything is carried out through its self-service facilities. It has a friendly interior that gives off a casual and relaxing vibe and not to mention it houses courteous Universal Officers who can get you acquainted and comfortable with the digital facilities in the branch. The Universal Officers may also provide financial advice to help you choose the best financial solutions and services offered by the Bank that are tailor-fit to your needs and lifestyle.
This digital branch launches the first GRG H34NL Full Function ATM in the country that offers unparalleled performance and flexibility, with rich functionalities including high capacity bank note dispensing and intelligent cash, check and mixed deposits processing. With this machine, you no longer need to line up to deposit cash and check payments and can enjoy fast and reliable transactions with real-time crediting.
“KONEKT is much more than just a showcase of the new digital technologies in banking but it is an actual channel that efficiently connects you to new opportunities. It is a testament to the Bank’s commitment to transform customer experience and carry out innovations that are responsive to the real needs of the Filipino people,” said Mr. Hernandez.
“What we’re doing is something good, something the market appreciates,” Mr. Hernandez said. “Basically, everything comes from the basic proposition that everything that we do is inspired by customer needs and wants. We adapt to their experiences and adjust to their lifestyle.”
PNB Savings Bank continues its innovations inspired by you campaign, all these to deliver its promise of making every Filipino’s dream reachable.
