STANBIC Bank has introduced iFinance for Blue Sky members, an affordable new way of owning great new technology, to be launched on November 30th 2015.
iFinance will initially be made available to members of Blue Sky, Stanbic’s lifestyle and rewards programme.
The bank has partnered with iConnect, a Zambian internet service provider and source of consumer technology, to create a bundle of services that make it easier than ever to get connected.
Customers will be able to buy selected devices from iConnect and obtain pre-approved financing, free home connection (where applicable), and free data to get started.
Not only does this mean a quicker journey to a connected life, but also a simpler and more affordable one.
Stanbic Bank chief executive officer Charles Mudiwa said his bank had developed iFinance in order to help its premium customers get connected to consumer technologies which were becoming more rapidly available.
“Stanbic Bank is pleased to announce the introduction of iFinance, available to members of Blue Sky from November 30th.
“As consumer technologies are becoming more rapidly available, Stanbic Bank has developed iFinance in order to help its premium customers get connected,” he said.
And the bank’s head of personal and business banking Mukwandi Chibesakunda said iFinance delivered on Stanbic’s promise to enhance people’s lives by being their partner in every aspect.
Ms Chibesakunda said the ‘‘exciting new initiative helped bring this aspiration to life simply, financially and responsibly’’.
“Our customers have told us that technology and being ‘connected’ is more important to them than ever as at Stanbic we pride ourselves in meeting our customers at their very points of need,” she said.
