Alibaba Cloud launches ‘Fintech ONE’

The Fintech ONE is in line with local government’s favorable policies to support the fintech industry.

Alibaba Cloud, the digital technology and intelligence backbone of Alibaba Group, launched the “Fintech ONE”, a program which further supports the digital transformation journeys of finance companies in the Philippines.

The Fintech ONE is in line with local government’s favorable policies to support the fintech industry. Aimed to speed up the digital transformation of businesses via secure, reliable and scalable cloud solutions while helping boost financial inclusion in the country, the program offers participating fintech companies in the country easy access to advanced cloud technologies, free technical training and professional consultations.    

An eligible fintech firm will receive up to US$10,000 in cloud coupons which can be redeemed against Alibaba Cloud products and services as well as support from Alibaba Group’s ecosystem. Qualified companies will benefit from streamlined access to technology solutions from Alibaba Group’s ecosystem and its affiliated company, Ant Group – including those that facilitate e-commerce and payment processes to help participating firms maximize emerging opportunities in the Philippines. Alibaba Cloud will also assist fintech companies in engaging with local and global investors and accelerators to help grow their businesses.

“Alibaba Cloud is excited to witness what the future holds for the digital industry and particularly the fintech sector in the Philippines. We are already seeing transformation and strong expansion in these areas, and we aim to further stimulate this through initiatives like the Fintech One program,” said Leo Liu, general manager of the Philippines, Hong Kong, Macau SAR, Alibaba Cloud Intelligence.

Earlier this year, Alibaba Cloud launched a FinTech Industry Sandbox Program in partnership with the Philippines’ FinTech Alliance.ph. The program enables local financial businesses to explore the use of advanced cloud computing products and fintech services from Alibaba Cloud in a risk-free testing environment.

“We see the role of being a trusted cloud service provider as helping fintech companies deliver products and services that operate seamlessly and reliably for their end users. By leveraging Alibaba Cloud’s IT infrastructure and innovative fintech products, digital financial services can reach more of the country’s unbanked Filipinos,” said Allen Guo, Country Manager for the Philippines, Alibaba Cloud Intelligence. 

As the leading public cloud service provider in Asia Pacific, Alibaba Cloud offers its expertise in cloud technology to provide appropriate products, including elastic compute, database, security, storage and network services and machine learning and data analytics capabilities, to address issues and challenges in the sector. It works with various fintech players including GCash and UBX.

Alibaba Cloud provides a mix of fintech solutions to GCash to handle large volumes of digital transactions with minimal interruption and high-cost efficiency. For UBX, Alibaba Cloud provides an Electronic Know-Your-Customer (eKYC) solution designed to help boost their efficiency and security through digitalizing the identity verification process.
