July 30, 2015
The prestigious financial magazine 'Global Finance' has recently chosen Leumi as “The Best Digital Bank in Israel for Business Customers". In addition, the magazine has chosen the Leumi Mobile app as "The Best Banking Application for Business Customers in the Middle East".
A professional panel of judges awarded Leumi based on the following criteria: the adaptability of the Bank’s various digital channels to the needs of business customers, the range of products and services offered to business customers via the Bank's digital channels (web and mobile), the rise in the number of business customers using the Bank's digital channels over the past year, as well as the design and functionality of Leumi’s digital channels.
The magazine praised a number of groundbreaking services that business customers are offered via Leumi Digital, including the ‘Mobile Signature’ service which allows business owners and authorized signatories to safely and securely approve, via smartphone, financial transactions such as transfers between accounts, international trade transactions, salary payment, and foreign currency conversions. Another service which received the judges' praise is ‘Mobile Check Deposit’ which lets customers deposit checks into their bank account by taking a picture of the check with their smartphone. At the same time, Leumi is the only bank in Israel that has set up a dedicated Facebook page for the benefit of business owners; 'Leumi Business on Facebook’ is a public forum on which business owners can share their personal experiences and get professional advice from various experts.
Tamar Yassur, Head of Leumi's Retail Banking Division, commented following the announcement: "The Global Finance award serves as further recognition of Leumi's premier position in the digital banking field in Israel. We are investing heavily in advanced technological developments in order to create real and innovative value for business customers, which we perceive as the growth engine of the Israeli economy. This allows them to perform a variety of banking transactions – whether simple or complex – from anywhere and at any time.
