People’s Bank expands digital footprint

In 2015, the People’s Bank took a strategic decision to embark on a digitalization drive to offer greater competitiveness to customers, while focusing on aspiring entrepreneurs and Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs).

Deputy General Manager, Digitalization at People’s Bank, Ranjith Kodituwakku said, “The digitalization project that has been initiated by People’s Bank spans a quick and easy digital banking experience to account opening, loan origination, mobile banking and internet banking, thereby transforming entire banking operations: our applications, our customer touch-points, the business process flow, the operational flow, simply the entire process that leads to transforming the Bank in to the next level.”The bank’s ambitious digitalization drive will empower it to deliver a seamless digital experience to customers and elevate Sri Lanka’s banking and financial services to an international digital platform,” he said.

The first phase of People’s Bank’s digitalization drive culminated recently with the opening of the fully-fledged Digital Centre by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe at York Street, Colombo 1.

People’s Bank Head of IT, Sandalal Edirisinghe said, “Banking on-the-go or mobile banking is one of the key trends worldwide and Sri Lanka too must keep pace.

“As a bank with one of the largest customer bases in the banking industry, our digitalization efforts can empower a large proportion of the population to become financially aware and empowered by our digital technology backed financial solutions.

We are proud to lead the way in the digitalization of Sri Lanka’s banking sector.”

People’s Bank Chief Executive Officer/General Manager N. Vasantha Kumar said, “People’s Bank is dedicated to serving the nation by providing a comprehensive range of banking solutions and financial services to citizens from all walks of life, across the entire island.”

“As the bank with one of the largest customer bases in Sri Lanka’s banking industry, People’s Bank is demonstrating its leadership status by launching digitalization initiatives in alignment with the latest global consumer and market trends.

We believe this process of digitalization will deliver multiple benefits to the nation,” he said.
