We hope that this effort can increase financial inclusion, expand digital access, and support a cashless society in Indonesia,” said Darmawan.
“XL Axiata welcomes the strategic cooperation with CIMB Niaga, this is in line with our focus to continuously improve service quality and provide more benefits to our loyal customers and the Indonesian people. With the increasing digitisation of the financial services industry, supported by more customers using digital channels to bank, telecommunications companies are well positioned to offer financial services through their network infrastructure, including XL Axiata,” said president director & CEO of XL Axiata Dian Siswarini.
Through this collaboration, XL Axiata customers can access banking services such as opening savings, e-wallets, subscription discounts through myXL application and vice versa, CIMB Niaga customers will be able to get XL Axiata services through CIMB Niaga’s digital application.
