All The Things An Innovative Bank App Should Be Able To Do

Access Bank
June 3, 2020

The world is rapidly changing and we believe that products and services should level up to this change at an even faster pace. This also concerns banking — for obvious reasons. I mean, they hold our money; it’s practically the same as trusting them with our deepest secrets.

What we require from the banking sector is simple: an innovative bank app that can literally do everything we need it to do without stressing our lives. Any bank app that can do any of the following can take all our money abeg:

1. Make it easy for us to open a bank account with or without a BVN

Have you seen the queue at the bank when you want to open a new account or link your BVN? It’s like an election scene. And frankly, nobody has time for that. A bank app should be able to meet this need.

2. Local and international flight booking

If we can’t hire a personal assistant because we don’t have enough money, then our bank app should be able to act as an assistant of sorts. And God knows that trying to book a flight is not something we want to be stressing about. Imagine booking local and international flights from the convenience of your bank app? That’s the highest level of personal assistance EVER. Now imagine it’s your bank app doing that for you.

Mind = Blown.

It’s not too much to ask, is it?

3. Visa application

Call us what you want, but wouldn’t it be sleek if you could apply for a Dubai visa from your bank app and everything just goes smoothly? Just imagine that life. Imagine the ease.

A truly beautiful life that would be.

4. Foreign currency transfer


This is 2020, people. Isn’t it about time bank apps allow us transfer cash to the abroad or receive cash from our people over there? By now, it should be a basic human right, to be honest.

5. Above all…

An ideal bank app should be able to save the stress of having to visit the bank for every little thing. It’s the very least we can expect.

You know the best part of this story? There’s hope!

A lot of us probably grew up battling stereotypes.
