Stanbic Bank Tanzania has launched its upgraded mobile banking application, in a move designed to create a better overall experience for its clients.

The application is currently available on Android and IOS operating systems.

The upgrade comes embedded with new intuitive features, including a global link to other accounts domiciled in foreign countries, a more user-friendly interface allowing easier navigation through menus and ease of adding beneficiaries without customers having to access their online banking platform as was the case before.

The application also allows customers to send money to contacts directly from their phonebooks, drastically reducing the chances of sending money to the wrong recipient, something that has been a pain point for many mobile money users.

In a statement issued by the bank in Dar es Salaam yesterday, Stanbic Bank Tanzania Manager- Self Service Channels, Albert Swai says: “From our perspective, adapting to the pace of innovation is key to not only building stronger relationships with our clients, but also empowering their financial success. Stanbic Bank aims to offer our most advanced capabilities to make interactions with our clients easier and more secure while remaining a trusted resource to them.”

Swai said the bank’s goal is not just about delivering access to resources and convenient solutions but to also anticipate and meet the clients’ ever-changing needs.

“Keeping up with the speed of innovation is a challenge for virtually all organizations in today’s world, and Stanbic Bank is no exception. However, if the bank remains connected with its purpose to enable financial success, we are sure to succeed together with our clients,” he said.
