According to Stanbic Bank’s Head of Customer Channels, Miriam Naigembe, the online service requires no paperwork, has fewer requirements and saves time. Customers no longer have to queue inside the bank for the purpose of opening accounts.

Previously, new customers would have to go through the long process filling paperwork for every requirement. It’s great to note that we have done a review of the requirements and all a customer needs to open the account is a National ID/Student ID (for Ugandans), Passport and valid visa for Non-Ugandan nationals, a passport photo and their signature. Off smartphones, one can take a photo of themselves, of the ID and signature and upload in a matter of minutes. The long tedious process and requirements such as an LC letter, letter of introduction and proof of income is now a thing of the past.

The experience of getting a Stanbic bank account is now much smoother as it’s embedded in the one single view form that automatically registers customers to their channels of choice. These may include online banking, mobile banking, App, SMS alerts and Visa card.

She further added, “It also provides the opportunity for customers to deposit any amount onto their account remotely using our ATMs, Cash Deposit Machines, Agents and Mobile Money.”

After document verification is complete, the account will be activated in a matter of minutes during the working day.

After successful registration, customers visit the branch to collect their visa cards and enjoy the benefits of cashless banking.

With this objective in mind, we have continued to introduce digital innovations and made improvements to our banking processes that have put our customers in greater control of their overall banking experience,” Miriam concluded.
