BACLAYS ZIMBABWE has launched state-of-the-art Automated Teller Machines that are aimed at providing its customers with enhanced security and easy transactional experience.
The new Barclays ATMs are equipped with keypad covers that prevent other members of the public to see customer transactions.
Forty-five ATMs have already been deployed across 70 percent of the Barclays network in Harare, Masvingo, Chiredzi, Beitbridge, Chinhoyi, Mutare, Kwekwe, Bulawayo and Victoria Falls.
The ATMs offer security features that include security surveillance equipment and screens that blur content when viewed from a distance or from an angle coupled with an SMS offering that confirms transactions real-time.
Said Barclays managing director Mr George Guvamatanga: “Our investment in ATMs is a critical part of our commitment to improve customer experience.
“It is important for us to ensure that each transactional channel makes their lives much easier.”
In addition, Mr Guvamatanga noted that, the bank was set to launch in April “Hello Money” that allows customers to do their banking anytime, anywhere from any smart-phone.
The facility will offer options to transfer funds to a Barclays account or to an account at another banking institution, airtime top- up, mini statements and balance enquiries.
“We want our customers to do more of the things that they enjoy, so we make it a priority to create products that allow them to do so. ‘Hello Money’ does that exactly,” he said.
