That the leading financial institution, United Bank for Africa (UBA) Plc recently upgraded its mobile banking app is an established fact.
Be that as it may, we can tell you for free that the bank’s upgraded mobile banking app has continued to attract commendation from all and sundry.
Over the past few weeks, social media sites including twitter, Instagram and Facebook have been agog, following the upgrade with excellent comments about the ambience, functionality and versatility of UBA’s revamped mobile app.
The latest of such glowing reviews came last weekend, from a former Minister of Aviation, Mr. Osita Chidoka, who on his social media handles, gave kudos to the bank for introducing lots of exciting and interactive features to aid banking, while allowing customers to perform unlimited transactions from the comfort of their mobile phones.
The ex-Corps Marshal and Chief Executive Officer of the Federal Road Safety Corps, pointed out that the bank put into play its experience as an institution with several decades of operations as well as modern technology to come up with a revamped app worthy of emulation by other financial institutions some of which he mentioned in his post.
“UBA, surprised me with a massive improvement on their app. I used to consider them the sleeping giant of Nigerian banking. I thought they had great brand equity and name recognition.”
“UBA combined the savvy feel of a new generation bank with the history of a legacy bank. As I opened their mobile app today, I couldn’t help but give them a high five. The app is beautiful, user interface is great, navigation is seamless and the need to go to a branch is reduced for small users like us.”
“As a customer, I have always challenged the banks on their slow adaptation to change and weak emphasis on improving customer experience. I pray UBA pushes forward in this direction and continues to surpass themselves. Sooner than later disruptive online banks will change the face of banking in Nigeria, hence the need for constant innovation by the industry.”
Also, other Nigerians like Maduka Vivian, who reacted to his post also praised the app. She said; “UBA app is simply the best, you can even generate receipts for transactions done long ago.”
Tayo Agbeh equally added; “UBA is taking their rightful position in the industry. I’m quite sure the bank will sustain the lead.”
Similarly, Felix Okechi Oguike, who was impressed by the glowing tributes disclosed; “I guess I’ll try this app; I have heard many testimonies; I need to partake in the flock.”
However, speaking recently on the new features of the upgraded mobile app, the Bank’s Group Head, Digital Banking, Sampson Aneke, said; “UBA as a listening institution, aims to provide the best value possible for its customers through a more interactive, user friendly interface that makes available a myriad of opportunities from the comfort of customers’ homes.”
“The new mobile app will now prompt users to use their device enabled biometrics, the menu has been reduced and divided into sub-menus to enable users view Transaction History, Net worth, Trends amongst others at a glance.”
“With the new interface, the user can now see all the transfer options including the saved beneficiary option at a glance and can even order food for delivery via the app.”
