Standard Chartered News Update: Bank Adds App to Repertoire
Standard Chartered news update: Banking chain Standard Chartered have launched a new mobile app to expand their customers’ business experience.
Apps are becoming a major part of the business and social worlds as people become ever more reliant on their mobile phones and other devices which leads them to demand that they are able to access everything they might ever need to in one place. When it comes to banking, most of the major banks have broken into the mobile device market and have launched their own apps allowing their customers to conduct business on the go.
“Standard Chartered has announced the introduction of the “Breeze” mobile application (“app”) which delivers an exciting dimension of digitisation to its customers.
The revolutionary move by the Bank will transform the digital space in the country’s financial services industry.
Currently the sophistication and increased expectation of the average Ghanaian banking customer has influenced banks to adopt a new way of thinking; a thinking that is defined by how to drive a cohesive relationship with the customer.
Standard Chartered’s internal research has revealed that customers now wish for simpler and faster banking; be it at the branch, on phones or via mobile networks. The Breeze Mobile Banking app was borne out of a desire to make banking simpler by creating an intuitive, plain-speaking smartphone interface.
