UBA Upgrades Leo, Launches Service On Google Business Chat, Instagram.

Despite Challenges, UBA Leads Banking Sector in CAR, Liquidity Ratio

UBA Plc has an­nounced the expan­sion of the services of Leo, its Artificial Intelligence chatbot to Google Business Chat and Instagram.

Leo – UBA’s AI-powered chatbot, which enables cus­tomers to make use of their social media accounts to carry out key banking transactions – was first introduced in Jan­uary 2018. It has since evolved to become a custom-fitted, personalised virtual banker to several UBA Customers across its 20 African countries. Before now, UBA’s Leo was servicing customers on Facebook Messenger, Whatsapp and Apple Chat.

The bank also announced an upgrade to the existing fea­tures of Leo, where custom­ers can now carry out their activities in a 3D animated format. Armed with this upgrade and with its recent expansion to Instagram and Google Business, customers will now be able to carry out more transactions from the comfort of their homes and can now perform more activ­ities such as funds transfer, checking balances, buying airtime and data, and getting their bank statements with ease, from any of these social media platforms.
