Standard Chartered Bank Ghana Limited, has for the second consecutive year been named the Digital Bank of the Year at the Ghana Information and Technology Awards (GITTA).
This is an affirmation of the Bank’s leading role in digitisation. In 2015 the Bank increased investment in digital platforms to meet its client needs through an enhanced end-to-end digital offering, with best-in-class digital products and services.
Earlier this year, Standard Chartered launched a full Digital Bank on mobile – Standard Chartered Mobile (SC Mobile) fulfilling the Bank’s determination to provide the best digital lifestyle for its clients.
The Bank’s digital services are available by downloading the SC Mobile App. New clients can open a bank account and provide all verification documents by uploading to the application and completing the onboarding process.
Debit cards will be delivered to the client via Ghana Post making it a complete digital onboarding process without clients interfacing with a branch. Clients can access several services on the mobile app including online investment profiling.
The Bank also provides digital solutions to corporate and businesses. The Straigt2Bank digital platform from Standard Chartered offers corporate bodies and businesses a comprehensive suite of electronic channels – a working capital platform providing clients with greater operational efficiency, security and control over their transactions and processes.
The Bank also took away three additional awards including Best Mobile Banking App of the Year, Africa Digital Banking of the Year and Digital Banking Team of the Year.
Commenting on the awards, Mansa Nettey CEO, Standard Chartered Bank Ghana Limited, thanked the Bank’s clients for their loyalty and constant feedback aimed at improving the operations of the Bank.
She said “ We continue to focus on our clients and continuously invest and employ innovating ways to make banking for our clients simple, easy and convenient.
“We will continue to listen and collaborate with our clients particularly in an industry where institutions and consumers are increasingly adopting and depending on digital technology to run their businesses and lives”.
These awards affirm the Bank’s commitment to delivering easy and convenient banking to clients and leading the way in digitisation in Ghana.
The Ghana Information Technology and Telecom Awards is held annually and recognises excellence and innovation in the ICT and telecommunications sector.
