Nedbank chief executive, Mike Brown, has launched the Nedbank App Suite to staff at an event in Johannesburg. The launch of the App Suite follows two years of development and marks the next chapter in the bank’s digital evolution.
The use of digital apps in financial services is increasing and Nedbank’s launch will undoubtedly be welcomed by consumers.
“The Nedbank App Suite is unique in that it will be available on smartphones as well as a wide range of feature phones. It is our intention to provide an easy-to-use banking app that is safe, convenient and available to as many South Africans as possible,” he says.
At the time of launch to the public, the Nedbank App Suite will include a first-to-market online share trading offering, corporate batch authorisations and business banking password reset capability. Other useful NedApps include mobile banking, balance enquiry, payments, transfers, branch locators, forex calculators and application lead forms.
“The launch of the Nedbank App Suite follows the recent launch of Approve-it, which is the best online security currently available in South Africa. Our priority is to make our clients’ digital experience with Nedbank secure and to empower them to do all their transactional banking anywhere, anytime,” adds Brown.
The Nedbank App Suite beta version has been released to Nedbank staff before being released to the public. It is anticipated that the App Suite will be available in the near future.
“In addition to the launch of the Nedbank App Suite, we have built an architecture that enables quick product development and release and have a number of innovative products in the pipeline. I look forward to announcing the details in the coming weeks,” concludes Brown.
