ANZ New Zealand’s mobile banking application, ANZ goMoney is being launched today. The bank says it is the first convenient and simple way for customers to securely transfer money between friends, relatives and businesses using only mobile phone details.
Currently available for use on an iPhone, ANZ goMoney is free and can be downloaded via iTunes.
The application when launched in Australia by ANZ in August 2010 topped the iTunes charts as the most popular finance application only days after its launch. Currently 280,000 Australian iPhone owners use ANZ goMoney.
The ANZ goMoney application has been built, hosted and supported by ANZ New Zealand for the wider ANZ Group. It was built in New Zealand for the Australian launch where there are larger iPhone user numbers, then tailored for the New Zealand market.
“ANZ goMoney is an easy to use application that allows our customers to access all their banking needs using a secure iPhone application,” says ANZ New Zealand Managing Director Retail, Kerri Thompson.
“Customers can make secure payments to another person using only the other person’s mobile phone number. There’s no need to enter a bank account number nor does the recipient have to be an ANZ New Zealand customer.
“ANZ goMoney is the next evolution in mobile phone banking and the Pay to Mobile function will revolutionise person-to-person payments,” she said.
“People are continuing to evolve and change the way they interact with banks. They want to do their banking when, where and how they want and with goMoney, ANZ New Zealand has responded with a renewed focus on delivering innovation that works for our customers.”
Features of the ANZ goMoney iPhone application include easy-access via a secure four digit PIN, accounts personalised with photos or images of the user’s choice, session based security.
ANZ goMoney is backed by ANZ’s Internet, Mobile and Phone Banking Guarantee.
