UAB launches mobile banking app
Sharjah, August 27, 2013
United Arab Bank (UAB), a key lender based in Sharjah, said it has introduced a free mobile banking app allowing its customers to have secure and easy access to manage their accounts whilst on the move.
Established in 1975 as a joint venture between UAE investors and Societe Generale, UAB presently has a network of 20 branches and offices spread across the UAE.
Commenting on the move, CEO Paul Trowbridge said the application was designed keeping in mind the high usage of smart phones in UAE and changing needs of its customers.
"UAB's mobile application will be available on Apple, Blackberry and Android phones and it can be downloaded from Apple App Store, Blackberry App World and Google Play. As with our loyalty program, UAB Rewards, where customers can redeem their rewards remotely, they can now also meet all their banking needs using their mobile handsets with constant access to their bank accounts only a fingertip away,” he noted.
Tom Smith, the executive VP & Group Head of Retail Banking said, "With the vast majority of the population in UAE having access to smart phones, it was important to introduce a service that allows them to address all their primary banking needs."
"We are living in a fast moving world where we have mobile applications for almost everything that we want, and at UAB, we want convenient banking for our customers anytime, anyplace, anywhere," he added.
The mobile banking application by United Arab Bank is free to download and use. Customers will be able to view their account balances, transactions, credit card, loan payments, make transfer between accounts, pay utility bills and more.-TradeArabia News Service
