Access Bank Plc has launched a new mobile banking application tagged “AccessMore” to ensure easy access to funds and seamless transactions by customers, amid COVID-19 lockdown.
Mr Herbert Wigwe, the bank’s Chief Executive Officer, said this in a statement in Lagos on Saturday.
Wigwe described AccessMore as an innovative mobile application that offers a ‘more than banking’ experience.
He said the app, built on cutting-edge technology, offers tailored and personalised services, ease of use and excellent customer experience.
“In a period like this, when we need to be more present and relevant in the lives of our customers than ever, we have risen to the challenge to ensure our customers have access to their funds.”
With the app, he said customers can carry out transactions while keeping safe at home.
“To deliver on our promise to continually give our customers ‘more’, we have worked with first class tech experts to build the AccessMore mobile app to suit our customers’ lifestyle and meet their financial needs.
“As we mark our first anniversary post-merger with erstwhile Diamond Bank, this new addition to our array of solutions is also in line with our promise to adopt the best of both institutions.
“The AccessMore mobile app does not only deliver the best combination of both mobile apps, it accommodates the unique needs of existing users, delivering the best mobile banking experience on a world class platform,’’ Wigwe said.
The statement also quotes Mr Victor Etuokwu, the bank’s Executive Director, Retail Banking, as saying that customers could download the new AccessMore mobile app from their Android play-store or IOS app store.
“This month marks the one-year anniversary of our expanded institution and we are using this opportunity to reward our loyal customers, who believed in us and stood by us throughout the integration period.
“From April to December 2020, we will be rewarding customers who complete 10 transactions, using either our USSD service *901# or any of our mobile apps (old Access Mobile, old Diamond mobile or the new AccessMore app) per month.
“So, the more a customer transacts in multiples of 10, the higher his/her chances of winning a new car in the quarterly draw,’’ Etuokwu was quoted as saying.
Access Bank, with about 40 million customers and more than 600 branches nationwide, offers a range of products and services tailored to suit needs and lifestyles of its customers across multiple segments. (NAN)
