First Bank unveils new app to boost mobile banking

First Bank of Nigeria Limited in its effort to improve the mobile banking experience of its customers, has unveiled a new application called LIT App.

LIT App, the bank said, would include bills payment, airtime recharge, fund transfer, and also provide other features that shows the bank’s commitment to continually expand its digital architecture in modernising its interaction with customers, irrespective of where they may be across the world.

The functions of the app include multiple transfers, which allow customers to select several beneficiaries at once for a single transfer; account opening opportunities for non-customers; and account management, enabling customers to identify their relationship managers for immediate assistance depending on needs.

First Bank in a statement on Friday, said the app would also allow customers generate statements via PDF format or through email while having receipts backdated as much as preferred by the customer. With the app, customers will have access to full remote banking experience without visiting the bank’s branches.

Dr Adesola Adeduntan, the Chief Executive Officer of First Bank, while expressing his excitement at the app launch, said it would ensure the safety of customers’ funds and provide them with access to renewed, transformative, and adaptable solutions in the current digital landscape.

The CEO further added that, “Developing the application is essential to make certain that our customers have more ways to seamlessly interact with us. The LIT App is the latest addition to the bank’s robust electronic banking family, with others being the multiple global award-winning FirstMobile”.
