International Mobile Banking Updates - Mar 2

ICICI Bank adds new mobile banking services
"ICICI Bank, India`s largest private sector bank announced launch of convenient services to transact over mobile phones. The bank provides a wide range of financial and non-financial services, which can be conducted through mobile devices."

Mobile Bill Pay Demand Is the Future
"Imagine paying your house payment while riding in a double decker bus in London or making your Visa payment while waiting for a plane. For Greg Meyer, community relations manager at the $1.2 billion Meriwest Credit Union in San Jose, Calif., those scenarios are beyond dreams. He believes they need to become realities for credit unions that hope to compete in an increasingly technological financial services landscape."

Coming soon: Mobile banking payment transfers for everyone
"Savers with every UK bank should soon be able to transfer cash with just a few taps on their mobile phone. Trade body, the Payments Council, is developing a system to allow customers to shift cash from their accounts using their mobiles, without the need for a sort code or account number. It should be complete by the end of this year.
Banks will then decide whether to introduce the system and whether they will charge for it."

UK banks need to get their mobile banking plans on track
"Much has been made of phenomenal increase of smartphone usage in every facet of British society, so why isn’t mobile phone banking taking off like it is in overseas markets?

Smartphones are rapidly becoming essential tools in our day to day lives, often replacing computers for online tasks. In overseas markets dedicated banking apps mean bills can be paid, money transferred and goods bought online, all at the flick of a touchscreen. Why haven't UK banks embraced this technology over here?"
