Danske's new mobile service offers customers 'banking on go'

By Clare Weir

Danske Bank has launched a mobile banking app specifically for business customers.

Using their iOS or Android smartphone or tablet devices, customers can now view their accounts in real time and make or authorise payments while they are on the go.

The app is free and can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play.

Features of the new app include the ability to transfer money between accounts or to a third party, make or approve payments and access to markets information and a currency converter.

For businesses operating in multiple jurisdictions, the app's unique cross-border functionality will enable them to manage foreign currency payments between their accounts in different countries.

The app will be of most benefit to small business owners with busy schedules and a lot of time away from the office and is being simultaneously launched across Danske Bank's six main markets in northern Europe.

Danske Bank's head of small business, Katherine James, said that these days, businesses need to be more efficient and make decisions on the go.

"Increasingly, they are spending time away from the office and many are now also operating across borders," she said.

"They need a bank that can respond to those needs. Customers have been asking us for this for some time.

"They want to be able to operate their accounts anytime and anywhere, and now they can. With our mobile business app we are making it easier for our customers to monitor and manage their business finances," she said.

"Next month we will be launching a new service so businesses can get text or email alerts with balance updates or notifications of payments received for example."
