State-operated Land Bank of the Philippines (Landbank) is setting its sights on minimising traditional over-the-counter transactions by encouraging its customers to utilise its digital services.

Lynette Ortiz, President and CEO of Landbank, articulated the bank’s objective to usher clients towards its digital banking services, which encompass the Landbank mobile banking application, the iAccess online retail banking channel, and the Link.BizPortal, a web-based payment platform for retail customers.

To streamline operations at physical branches, a selection of Landbank locations have been outfitted with an automated queuing management system complemented by a teller interface, aimed at reducing the processing times for in-person transactions. Future enhancements will include an online facility for pre-booking appointments, enabling customers to schedule branch visits in advance.

Since 2018, Landbank has been implementing a digital onboarding system that has streamlined the account enrolment process, cutting down the time it takes to open an account from 45 minutes to 15 minutes.

Starting in April, a new feature on Landbank’s mobile banking app will allow customers to open accounts without the need to visit a branch, providing instant access to various digital banking services such as fund transfers, bill payments, e-commerce transactions, and cardless cash withdrawals.
