„Mobile ME is one of our top solutions that best serve the current needs of our clients to manage their finances easily. Trough our application we deliver a secure platform that allows them to perform transactions with just a few swipes, anytime and anywhere. Mobile ME had a very fast pace of adoption since its launch and we are very optimistic about its future evolution”, stated Ioana Cristina Savu, Sales Channels Management Director, Garanti Bank Romania.
Mobile ME is an intuitive and close at hand Mobile Banking application. By using it, clients can perform all basic banking operations such as payments, foreign exchange transactions, Bonus Card debt payment, invoice payments and recharging prepaid. Garanti Bank launched Mobile ME compatible with iOS in January 2016 and since November last year the application can be used by Android smartphone users as well.
Users are also able to check their current account history, view account balance and send it on e-mail. Through Mobile ME, Bonus Card holders (Garanti Bank’s credit card) can check their debt, see their card transactions, as well as make a cash advance, meaning transferring money from the card’s cash limit to current account.
