CRDB Digital Innovation Senior Manager, Ms Jacklina Jackson, said the new app offers various investment opportunities, including opening a fixed deposit account.
“Customers can also now arrange money transfers, especially on constant recurring payments…which can be scheduled daily, weekly or every month,” she said.
Additionally, the lender has improved the transactions information pattern where customers can easily retrieve the receipt for all dealings at any given time.
The application has been improved further to permit payments through digital services providers that facilitate the collection of payments, and the user is vested with the ability to authorise payment using the one-time passcode.
CRDB also improved the App’s methodology for purchasing insurance coverage by increasing the speed and duration of access to services. The service was first introduced in 2020 when the app was modified for the first time. It was also reviewed in 2021.
