Zenith Bank has introduced an automated voice banking service; an interactive voice response (IVR) solution which allows customers to perform basic banking transactions over the phone.
Customers are hence given a dedicated phone line by Zenith Bank; which they can dial through their registered phone numbers; and also perform banking transactions by following instructions given by the IVR.
Through the IVR, customers can pay DSTV/GOTV bills; restrict their accounts; block their cards; and also request an account statement via email; view the last five transactions; transfer funds; buy airtime also, and more.
Commenting on the move, Zenith Bank CEO Ebenezer Onyeagwu said; “Zenith automated voice banking service is designed to ensure a truly amazing experience; that will offer convenience for our teeming customers.
“The bank remains a clear leader in the digital space with several firsts in the deployment of innovative products; solutions; and alternative channels; that ensure convenience; speed; as well as safety of transactions.”
To ensure maximum security, the self-service product is equipped with a multilayer authentication mechanism.
Equally important, the launch comes in line with the lockdown measures imposed by several states to curb the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
