Coupled with Google Data Analytics and AI solutions that are key to providing a better customer experience.
“With Google’s credibility and good security standardization, Senyumku has become the first digital-only Indonesian bank to be launched on the Cloud by promoting speed and security. What distinguishes Senyumku from other digital banks is the support of AI (Artificial Intelligence) which uses intelligence in managing information so that it can encourage customers to increase their savings. This allows Senyumku to be responsive to the dynamic behavior of customers. We hope that the presence of Senyumku can be a solution for the community to help them develop savings habits and manage their finances wisely, “
