From its birth in 1961, at Calamba, Laguna, the Luzon Development Bank (LDB) has not lost the sense of success, instead, it is getting productive through the years by giving birth to more branches in Luzon. This continuous success brings LDB to its identity now from the old name Laguna Development Bank.
Success has required LDB to operate in a more competitive banking platform. To do this, LDB has to come up with the best partner to address its needs and to cope up with the endless growth of technology. After series of comparison and data gathering, it has finally found the right full ICT (information and communications technology) partner in PLDT Alpha Enterprise.
LDB’s partnership with PLDT Alpha Enterprise was formalized through a recent contract signing ceremony after two years of working for the plan to materialize. And since most branches are located in remote areas, the scope of services and coverage that’s to be provided by PLDT was a top concern by everyone involved in the project. But despite the challenges, PLDT laid out its full-pledged support in all the banking endeavors of LDB.‘’We came to the conclusion that PLDT Alpha Enterprise was the partner that could best address our needs,’’ says our LDB SVP/Chief Operating Officer Norman V.C Aycocho.
