China Banking Corporation (China Bank) launched its own brand of speed banking for people on the go with the debut of China Bank Online for Mobile – a mobile-optimized version of China Bank’s award-winning internet banking service.
China Bank’s mobile portal, www.chinabank.ph, is accessible on all Internet-enabled cellular phones and mobile devices such as Ipad and Ipod Touch. Utilizing wi-fi and 3G technology, China Bank Online for Mobile was developed to make it fast, easy, and convenient for China Bank customers to do the three most frequently used banking transactions – balance inquiry, fund transfer, and bills payment – via mobile phones and devices, anytime, anywhere.
According to Antonio Owen S. Maramag, vice president for customer marketing, technology watchers predict 2011 will be the year of Mobile Internet with Wi-Fi- enabled cellphones cheaper and Free Wi-Fi hotspots more widespread. “Mobile phones have the highest ownership and usage among all electronic gadgets, we are excited about providing our customers with access to China Bank and for them to transact whenever, wherever, and now, on the go on their cellphones” he said.
“With the launch of China Bank Online for Mobile, we’re offering our customers with a true seamless multi-channel experience,” said Alexander C. Escucha, first vice president for corporate planning. Escucha noted that the robust mobile portal complements China Bank’s 24/7 electronic channels: ATM, China Bank Online (Internet banking), Mobile Banking (SMS-based), China Bank EZPay Kiosk (tax payment), and TellerPhone (phone banking).
China Bank Online for Mobile is available to China Bank customers enrolled in China Bank Online. Enrollment and use are free. Access to the mobile portal requires the same user name and passwords (log-in and transaction) as in the PC or Mac version.
