‘Bank in Your Hand' App Offers Customers Access to Noor's Retail Banking Services on iPhone and iPad
Dubai-UAE: May 14, 2013 - Noor Islamic Bank (Noor)'s augmented reality ‘Bank in Your Hand' smartphone and tablet application is now available for download from Apple's App Store. Work is also in progress on adapting the app to other smartphone platforms.
A first-of-its-kind in the Middle East, Noor App enables customers to access Noor's full range of products and services, including instant mobile-to-mobile payments between Noor clients, personalized financial analytics, account opening, ATM and branch locator using maps with augmented reality features, transferring money locally or internationally, and paying credit card and utility bills.
Hussain Al Qemzi, GCEO of Noor Investment Group and CEO of Noor Islamic Bank, said: “Our new ‘Bank in Your Hand' app takes the convenience of banking to the next level, bringing our services to customers wherever and whenever they wish. Noor App is the latest in a comprehensive line-up of innovations we have introduced. And, it will not be the last given our determination to lead the digital banking segment.”
Since its launch in 2008, Noor has established itself as a market leader in innovative banking services and products. Noor was the first UAE bank to open a 24/7 bank branch and the first Islamic bank to provide an internet bank account opening service. In addition, Noor's website provides a suite of cutting-edge online banking services. Its insurance arm, Noor Takaful, was the first Takaful operator to offer online insurance services and products.
Noor presented its vision of Bank of the Future at the GITEX Technology Week last year. The high-tech, interactive, concept bank provided a unique, immersive, 3D experience of how the future of banking could develop. It included the latest touch screen interface, 3D holographic projections, finger print recognition and surround sound, bringing together technology that is available today but yet to make inroads into banking. The Bank of the Future concept can now be experienced at Noor's Sheikh Zayed Road branch.
