Description

“Usage of mobile banking will continue to grow in Ireland as consumers become accustomed to performing banking activities at a time and place that suits them; while banks continue to move towards a more mobile and self-service business model. Going forward mobile banking providers could consider utilising the ‘FaceTime’ features of smartphone devices to begin delivering in-branch services such as financial and mortgage advice direct to consumers to maximise the mobile banking opportunity.”
