Mobile Banking Becomes Main Personal Banking Channel in Singapore

Mobile banking is growing for a reason - it comes with numerous benefits. Customers get to enjoy easier transactions, increased flexibility in keeping track of finances among others.

Digitization is revolutionizing the personal banking sector, with mobile banking experiencing a 15% jump over the last 12 months, as noted by Telecomasia. In fact, mobile banking now beats branch banking by transaction volume and new customer adoption in Singapore. Mobile is entering a revolutionary and rapid phase with regions like South East Asia and Africa becoming the main driver of this trend globally. Banks, in particular, are putting a lot of effort to leverage mobile technology to remain competitive.

Despite the rising popularity of mobile banking, banks need to fully transform before Singapore can be considered a mobile-driven digital economy:

Dedication to Improving User Experience 

Up to 46% of mobile banking users have reported issues when using their mobile banking app which the finance customer service industry are invested in improving. From logging problems to long loading times and even security issues, the personal banking sector understands the value in improving user experience. Loyal customers who save money each month via mobile apps are motivated by banks who embrace the enhancement of digital services, and who place their valuable customers at the center of their transformation. This not only improves their reputation, but also deepens overall customer relationships.

Building Trust and Brand Confidence is Top Priority

Personal banking is all about offering quality services to consumers in a convenient and effective way, and mobile banking falls perfectly in this category. But to achieve meaningful gains, building trust and brand confidence has to be a top priority for banks, as 41% of bank customers who are yet to switch to mobile banking apps cite trust and security as their main concern. Additionally, customers are faced with numerous choices in the market, combined with Fintech disruptions in the industry. To build trust, banks need to focus on developing mobile banking platforms that assure customers of secure, fast and efficient banking at all levels.

This is evident as we continue to see the emergence of more mobile banking solutions and e-wallets, with financial institutions adopting innovative digital banking technologies that make life easier to end customers.
