Advancing AI: Aboitiz taps PH software developer firm for ‘techglomerate’ push

The Aboitiz Group has teamed up with a Laguna-based software development firm to complement its “techglomerate” business strategy.

The bilyonaryo family’s Aboitiz Data Innovation (ADI) recently signed an agreement with Shiptek Solutions Corp. to enhance the use of data science and artificial intelligence in the logistics industry.

UnionBank’s new Innovation Campus is also based in the province.

The target is to use AI to further streamline transactions and routes with importers, exporters, forwarders, and trucking operators.

The company, known as XLOG, previously partnered with Aboitiz-owned Union Bank of the Philippines, for credit scoring of micro and small businesses to assess their capabilities for loan repayment.
