NCB has been pursuing a transition to digitised services for its commercial banking arm. In May 2019, it embarked on a major upgrade and modernisation programme for its core banking and online banking platforms.

The company promised that once the upgrade and post-implementation period is completed, customers could expect an overall enhanced experience in-branch and online and significantly fewer service disruptions to the online banking platforms.

The new system features the ability to allow scheduled bill payments, transaction notifications via SMS, e-mail and the mobile app and automate transfers.

Also, the bank said, business customers would be able to access online banking through a single sign-on, conduct all transfers from one place and complete a new menu of self-service transactions.
