Barcalys Zimbabwe will be launching its mobile banking application “Hello Money” this month. This was announced during  the launch of new ATMs by the company a few days ago.

Hello Money will allow Barclays account holders to transfer money to a Barclays account or to an account at another banking institution, airtime top up, mini statemenbarclays-imagets and balance enquiries.

The application will work on smartphones, which may point to it being either a Android app, a IOS, or that there’s a version for each OS. In other countries the service, going by the same name, has been implemented by Barclays using USSD. Being a smartphone app also indicates that this is not going to be a ZimSwitch Shared Services powered service.

Cellulant, a Kenyan mobile commerce services provider will be providing Barclays mobile services in Africa.

Barclays MD George Guvamatanga had this to say at the launch of the service;

“We want our customers to do more of the things that they enjoy so we make it a priority to create products that allow them to do so; ‘Hello Money’ does exactly that.”
