SBN launches smart banking

Standard Bank Namibia (SBN) customers now have the convenient choice of skipping the long queues and do mobile banking conveniently from their smart phones or tablets.
This comes after the bank entered the smart way of banking by launching the Smart Banking Application to the public today (Monday, 2 December 2013).  
“With Smart Banking, our customers can download the smart apps free of charge by going to their local Google Play or App stores. Not only is this kind of banking convenient but it is secure and you can do it anytime, anywhere with access to banking at your fingertips. The latest launch is simply to add value to the banking needs of our customers,” says the head of personal and business banking, Baronice Hans.
With smart banking, SBN customers can easily download the app and enjoy endless benefits.
“These benefits and features from the Standard Bank Smart Banking app are that you can check your account balance, view the last five transactions which have taken place on your account through a mini statement, move money between your accounts through inter-accounts transfers and send money to friends and family members through beneficiary payments,” adds Hans.
Other additional benefits of the app include being able to view an ATM and branch locator, to know where the nearest Standard Bank ATM and branches are positioned; having a vehicle and asset finance calculator, to allow customers to view their monthly and total repayments for a VAF loan; have a home loan repayment calculator, to assist in viewing one’s monthly and total repayment for a home loan; and have a home loan affordability calculator, to enable a customer or non-customer to calculate the maximum bond they would qualify for based on their monthly income.
 “Digital technology moves at a lightning pace and our customers can already look forward to a further upgrade to Smart Banking with the launch of version 2.0 in 2014. As new technology is developed, Standard Bank Namibia will continue to meet our customers’ evolving needs,” Hans concludes.
