The achievement is attributable to the smart combination of the bank's financial strategy and innovative IT solutions, which are fully integrated in MB SmartBank.
To capture the "self-service" trend, MB SmartBank is designed as an automatic banking model with high digital content. It allows customers to actively perform convenient transactions such as MBBank App registration, cash withdrawal and deposit, card issuance; deposit savings on app, and ATM machine without limit on service time.
According to The Asian Banker, card issuance on the spot is one of the best features of this model. MB has successfully connected the MBBank App digital banking app with the MB SmartBank system. Thereby, customers can synchronise O2O transactions (Online to Offline and vice versa) quickly and conveniently.
With the launch of MB SmartBank, MB has been perfecting its digital ecosystem with a view to deliver a 4.0 digital banking experience for customers and take a lead in digital transformation. At the same time, MB has made great strides with a series of outstanding digital products and services such as opening beautiful digital accounts, accounts with the same phone number, and most recently, making payment by Viet QR code on MBBank App.
After a short launch, MB's Viet QR code payment with 100 per cent free service offer has attracted a large number of small merchants, shop owners, and online shop owners, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, where cash payments are limited.
