Wema’s App Achievements
Since its launch in 2017, the app has been able to reduce the stress of having to walk into a branch to open an account by providing a seamless sign-up process on all devices. It also provides all the banking services the customers could think of.
He added that the app is helping its subscribers save more with access to exclusive group and personal savings, free debit cards, and up 4% annual interest in savings.
“All banking apps only offers some banking services, typically airtime purchases, bill payments and transfers.
For example, even with a banking app, customers usually still need to go to a physical bank to get a debit card and activate it, submit documents and often, get some kinds off customer support. This is not the case with ALAT, which was built from scratch to be entirely digital, making all banking services available to customers anywhere they can access the internet.”
