One of Nigeria’s foremost financial institution, Guaranty Trust Bank Plc raised the service standard by introducing its Social Banking Service on Facebook in January 2013. However, it recently expanded its Social Banking Service Offerings on Facebook to include Account Balance Enquiries. So with this innovation, you can now view your account balance, get airtime recharge, perform money transfers, pay bills, and open additional accounts, all on Facebook.
This may be in response to customers’ complaint about long queues and man-hours lost in all their branches and also at the ATMs.
Speaking about the innovation, Managing Director/CEO of Guaranty Trust Bank plc; Mr Segun Agbaje said the Bank is committed to ensure its stakeholders can perform financial transactions at their convenience and would continue to introduce safe and novel alternative channels for them to do so. Mr. Agbaje further confirmed that the Social Account is different from having a regular GTBank account as it enables people perform banking activities like money transfers, airtime purchases and bills payments while on Facebook.
