Open finance platform UBX introduced UrGovPH, a suite of open finance solutions that aim to assist local governments in their digital transformation journey. UrGovPH equips local government units (LGUs) and national government agencies with tools that enable them to digitalize public service.
With the help of UBX, LGUs can leverage UrGovPH’s open finance solutions including social services marketplace, financial services, information management, asset management, service management, and identity solutions.
Powered by the various ventures of UBX, LGUs that partner with UBX for their digital transformation journeys are empowered to automate the workflow for the management of all social services, from local civil registry, to enforcement of ordinances, citizen and business registration, to acceptance of digital payments.
i2i, UBX’s banking-as-a-service platform, allows citizens to transact with their local governments digitally. Aside from cashless and in-store payment solutions, i2i also allows for carded or non-carded disbursements. It also enables local governments to automate accounting and taxation.
Customer relations are also set to improve with the help of UrGovPH, as all information assets will be available for different channels. Inquiry management and dispute resolution management are covered by the feature. Likewise, real property, environmental, and business assets will be blockchain-enabled to help ease the control of the listings of real property, environment, and businesses under each LGU. Location-enabled mapping of Real Property Assets will also be available.
Through UrGovPH, businesses will have easier access to verified and trusted lenders in the Philippines through SeekCap. Entrepreneurs can find and apply for business loans online with UBX’s network of partner lenders, helping small and medium enterprises get the much-needed capital to stay afloat and competitive.
Citizen verification will be automated for faster and more efficient delivery of various services. ID verification, liveness check, and pre-filled information from the existing government IDs or connected database will be available.
LGUs will also have access to various government agencies and private partners of UBX, allowing them to introduce new digital services and further improve governance.
UrGovPH solutions can be hyper-personalized to the specific needs of the LGUs’ citizens.
