These solutions include agency banking; point-of-sale (POS) terminals; in-store ATM deployments; web payment gateways and access to Union360 - a secure web-based solution that offers an end-to-end single point for payments and collections. The retailers can also benefit from business loans such as overdrafts, short-term finance, distributor finance and invoice discounting finance.

Through this innovative offering, Union Bank will strengthen its support for the Nigerian retail sector which continues to show promise despite harsh economic conditions. According to AT Kearney’s Global Retail Development Index (GRDI), “the long-term prospects of Nigeria’s retail sector remain positive, supported by the budding middle class, the growing popularity of the formal retail space and the rapid rise of e-commerce.”

Commenting on the launch of UnionPro, Union Bank’s Divisional Executive, Commercial Banking, Gloria Omereonye highlighted the key role of large retail stores and supermarkets in boosting the economy. She also outlined the benefits of the UnionPro proposition while reiterating the Bank’s strategic approach to developing innovative services that support its customers.

She said; “We are proud to support local businesses through tailored products and services that ease the challenges of doing business in Nigeria. With UnionPro, we are making a commitment to work closely with large retailers, providing the necessary support they require to grow and expand their businesses.”

Union Bank is a foremost financial institution in Nigeria, offering a wide range of products and services for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) and larger businesses. The UnionAccelerate account, a high-interest hybrid current account with zero bank charges is one account created for medium-sized businesses. The benefits of the account include zero extra charges for all Union Bank services: on-line/ real-time banking and e-banking (both Internet banking & banking via ATMs). UnionAccelerate accounts can also be used as a salary/payroll account.

Union Bank remains focused on enabling the success of its customers through innovative finance solutions and platforms.
