UnionBank’s API Developer Portal recognized at Infosys Finacle Client Innovation Awards 2020


API Developer Portal

The API Developer Portal of UnionBank was recently recognized as the runner-up of Modern Technologies led Innovation category at the Infosys Finacle Client Innovation Awards 2020 program.

This award category recognizes banks “that are architecting the future by making the most of emerging technologies.”

UnionBank’s API Developer Portal provides users a unique customer experience so that they can easily find, test and consume the APIs most relevant to them - all done through the website.

This includes Netflix-like predictive recommendations which suggest relevant APIs to clients based on their industry and existing API usage.

Furthermore, the comprehensive documentation ala Facebook for developers means that information on the APIs are relevant for both business leaders seeking to understand the API's business value, and for technical readers that are looking to get started with development straightaway.

UnionBank is the first and only bank in the Philippines to be included in the ASEAN Financial Innovation Network or AFIN - an initiative spearheaded by the International Finance Corporation and the Monetary Board of Singapore to establish an ASEAN-wide API sandbox for banks and fintechs.

All APIs on the Developer Portal can be published on AFIN as well.

The Infosys Finacle Client Innovation Awards 2020 recognizes and celebrates the best of such innovations by clients around the world. These innovations have been carefully chosen for their impact on banking products and services, customer journeys, processes, distribution channels, and business models leading to additional revenue and profit for their respective banks.
