Standard Chartered sets new benchmark for digital customer experience excellence as it launched the bank’s responsive, and social media banking integrated online banking website in India.
According to Aman Narain, Group Head of Internet and Mobile Banking, the bank aims to create a more intuitive and personalized user experience. The new website allows content to be read on various browsers and devices, providing a better user experience and a cost-efficient way to provide information and serve customers.
The Regional Head of Consumer Banking South East Asia, Sanjeeb Chaudhuri, stated that Standard Chartered (@StanChart) chose India as the first market for the launching of the website as it has a growing segment of globally-connected consumers.
The mobile internet traffic in India is 60%, surpassing the 40% of desktop internet traffic. The Smartphone market is also expected to grow by 60% this year with about 26.5 million handsets ready to be shipped, making India the fifth largest smartphone market after China, USA, Japan, and Brazil.
The new website, www.standardchartered.co.in, marks the beginning of a unified user experience which makes banking more convenient anytime and anywhere. The new websites will be rolled out this year across Taiwan, UAE, Singapore, Malaysia, Korea, China, and Hong Kong.
