Convenience at Your Fingertips

“We chose WhatsApp as it’s the most popular mobile app in South Africa,” says Sbusiso Kumalo, Chief Marketing Officer at African Bank. “This familiarity and convenience will resonate with our customers.”

Simplified Banking Experience

Chat Banking streamlines the loan application process by eliminating a major hurdle: document uploading. Users can access various features on the initial version, including:

  • Checking account balances
  • Requesting statements
  • Obtaining settlement quotes
  • Attaching documents to applications

Building Trust in Digital Banking

This platform aims to build confidence in digital banking, especially for those hesitant to use online banking traditionally. Kumalo highlights the positive response since the soft launch, indicating its potential to encourage users to explore other digital channels.

Security and Safety

African Bank prioritizes security. “Remember to advise the bank immediately if your phone gets stolen,” emphasizes Kumalo.

Commitment to Customer Experience

“African Bank is about ‘being better,'” states Kumalo. “Chat Banking reflects our desire for intuitive and intelligent customer interactions. We are constantly innovating to provide the best possible experience, and Chat Banking is a significant step forward.”
