Development and innovation in technology are aimed continuously at improving and easing the experience of individuals. As such, every sector is positively affected by the gaps that these innovations tend to fill.
Being one of such industries affected by technology, the Banking sector has continuously applied these improvements in technology to create an effective, fast, easy, and secure experience for its customers.
Using mobile banking, Banks have curtailed the conventional method of interaction between them and their customers. Customers no longer have to be present at the banking premises for all transactions but can now perform these transactions remotely using their mobile phones.
Customers can interact with bank products and services with just their mobile phones and get immediate response tailored to their needs.
A chief innovation that really stands out is the implementation of the Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD), which delivers mobile financial services to low and high-income customers from the comfort of their homes.
