Atlantic Bank and Smart team up to Go-Mobile

Banking in your hands, it’s the slogan for the new mobile banking services being provided by Smart in collaboration with Atlantic Bank. Smart customers already had the option of recharging their accounts using their bank accounts, but with the enhanced service, they will have access to many features offered through Atlantic Bank’s online banking system. News Five was at the Smart headquarters for this morning’s launch.

“The enhanced GoMobile is now comprised of *GOABL, which is phone recharge services and *MYABL, which is mobile banking services. Our mutual customers have enjoyed phone recharge services since January 2008 when they were offered the convenience of adding credit from the comfort of their cellular phones. By making a free call to *GOABL or *46225, customers added credit by directly debiting their savings or checking account. Customers added credit in pre-determined amounts of two dollars, five dollars, ten dollars, twenty dollars and fifty dollars. Today, the enhanced recharge service allows customers to add any value, as long as their pocket permit, of course, by debiting their savings, checking or any credit card.  In mobile banking under *MYABL, customers have secure access to their banking accounts and are able to conduct banking transactions such as account balances, mini statements, transfer between accounts, third party transfers, stop payments on cheques and credit card payments.”

“We have seen tremendous growth in the demand for mobile and online banking services. In my opinion, Atlantic Bank has been one of the most progressive financial institutions in the country when it comes to embracing technology and ever since we opened our doors seven years ago, we have been more innovative and progressive in moving the telecoms industry in Belize forward. So years after the first GoMobile service was launched and our partners came to us and stated that they wanted to launch a new GoMobile service, we immediately said yes.”

    This is news? Heritage bank has this service for about two years now with BTL and now with SMART. Free advertising i guess by Atlantic Bank. You all should check out the Heritage Bank phone banking. Atlantic bank phone banking uses internet, which is essentially online banking and not phone banking. With Heritage BAnk you don’t need internet on your phone, what can be done online can also be done via text with Heritage. Check balances, transfer money, top up, get updates….etc.
