Philippines-based BDO Unibank has selected technology company Fiserv to provide managed services for its IT initiatives.

Under the deal, the technology vendor will offer the bank expertise for IT projects, analysis and testing of systems and process, and employee training.

BDO Unibank senior vice president for IT development Enrico Hernandez said: “We chose to expand the relationship with the company’s qualified team of experts to help augment our capacity and drive IT initiatives.

“With Managed Services, we can ensure that systems already in place are optimised and focus our organisation’s resources on growth initiatives, future plans and offering our customers the best possible banking experience.”

The Filipino lender already uses Fiserv’s Signature core account processing platform, the Teller front-end teller system, and the Communicator enterprise framework solution.
