UBA plans ATM gallery rollout

24 February 2014, 08:40Henry Ifeanyi

Lagos – United Bank for Africa (UBA) has concluded plans to build several Automated Teller Machines (ATM) galleries across the country.

The bank said this was part of plans to take mobile banking services closer to the customers.

Speaking on the plan, the bank's Divisional Head, e-Banking Services,  Adeyinka Adedeji said that new ATM machines that would be installed at the galleries would have biometric authentication adaptable features.

Adedeji noted that the new feature was considered in line with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN)’s ongoing bank customer's biometric data registration.

Since UBA is one of the banks being used for the biometrics pilot scheme, Adedeji said that the new ATM machines would hopefully encourage more Nigerians to adopt mobile banking services.
“We have over 700 branches but in the land space of Nigeria, we see it as small. So, we are constructing ATM galleries to ensure 24/7 banking.” he said.

Speaking on other mobile banking platform which the bank currently offered, Adedeji said: “We are now on the web. Our internet banking is a superb. Even when you move to the mobile it makes us get closer to the customers. In fact, that the closest you can get to them.

"We are the first to develop banking mobile app in Nigeria called the U-Mobile. We are also playing in the mobile money space.”

He added, “Today, if we give you a card, you may wish to have mobile banking applications there, we offer that too. In fact, mobile banking is our major bet in the industry. We are not offering the service in Nigeria alone.”
