Equity Bank has finally launched its EazzyBanking suite of applications, a banking as a service platform aimed at disrupting itself through innovative technology to support its customers convenient lifestyles.
According to the bank, EazzyBanking range of digital products are channel agonistic on a versatile technology and capability platform to fulfill customers demands for digital banking. More than 80% of all loans in the bank are now being accessed through the mobile phone showing an increasing desire for self service banking.
According to Dr. James Mwangi, Equity Group CEO, ”Customers’ banking trends have declared the death of the bank branch as transaction channel, as they increasingly embrace self-service technology platforms that give them freedom, choice and control.”
Eazzy Banking promise to give customers an easy, comprehensive and secure experience while supporting a convenient lifestyle for Kenyans transacting both in the country and abroad. Dr. James says the move is a response to customers’ evolving and sophisticated lifestyle-they value more free time and prefer to spend it with family and doing what they love. They prefer self-service digital banking. They also have a higher preference for convenience in payment platforms and access to loans.
