BNZ sees fast return on mobile banking investment
"Launched via BNZ Twitter, the dual release quickly raced to the number one spot for financial apps in Apple's iTunes store.

BNZ says the uptake is gratifying, coming after the bank invested strategically in the assembly of a mobile banking software team at its head office in Wellington. The team are supported by various disciplines from across the bank and have developed the BNZ mobile banking solution from the ground up."

The bank has 1.3 million logins and attracts about 500,000 financial transactions each month on its mobile apps, which recently underwent a revamp for iPhone, Android, Windows Phone 7 and BlackBerry devices."
