NZ business embracing mobile banking as demand for apps rise
ASB claims its new Mobile Business app has seen a "remarkable uptake" in its first few weeks as business customers adopt the convenience of business banking on the go.
“Since the ASB Mobile Business app was launched in September, we’ve seen a rapid uptake with users authorising tens of millions of payments on-the-go every week,” says Steve Jurkovich, Executive GM of Corporate, Commercial and Rural, ASB.
“Usage of the ASB Mobile Business app is increasing rapidly week-on-week. Over last week’s Labour Day long weekend holiday, payments using the app were up a massive 59 percent.
"This tells us that businesses owners and managers are embracing the flexibility that the app is giving them to check balances and authorise payments while balancing family and travel demands.
“Currently one in every ten FastNet Business customers has at least one payment authoriser using the app and this figure is continuing to rise."
The first ASB Mobile Business app update is due at the end of November and will include the ability to view transaction history, giving business managers further freedom to manage business finances at any time and from anywhere over the busy Christmas period.
The first update to the app comes just two months after its initial release and continues a pattern of rapid updates for ASB Mobile apps.
The ASB Mobile Business app is available in the Apple and Google Play app stores.
