Records tumble for EOFY transactions at NAB
More than ten billion dollars in transactions were processed on NAB’s two key internet banking platforms on 30 June setting new records for NAB.
NAB’s General Manager for Workplace Service Management, Lisa Palma said that the new records again demonstrated continued growth in online banking, and were in particular a strong endorsement of the bank’s new online business banking platform, NAB Connect.
“Customers can now bank whenever, wherever and however they chose, and these 30 June numbers show NAB customers are doing this in record numbers,” said Ms Palma.
“Released in April this year, the new NAB Connect is playing a big part in our drive to simplify things for NAB’s people and customers.
“Everything in NAB Connect from the user experience to the underlying business and approval processes has been designed to make things easy and intuitive.
“We are one of the few banks internationally that is transforming their organisation in such a comprehensive manner, ensuring we can be nimbler and quicker in responding to the needs of our customers.”
