It will also be made available on the app store for upload on iPads and devices running on Android and Apple.
Barclays Bank of Kenya managing director (MD) Jeremy Awori said: “The Kenya mobile banking arena is also fast developing and shaping the landscape of cashless transactions exponentially and this app is aimed at ensuring that convenience is key when carrying out bank transactions through Internet banking service. Our customers will not have to queue for long hours so as to be served, instead the click of a button will do the magic.”
Barclays is laying great emphasis on technology, product innovation and customer service. This new digital drive is part of the Barclays Bank One Africa strategy and corporate goal of becoming the ‘Go-To’ bank on the continent.
