Samba launches a new SambaMobile Application for smart phones and tablets

With smartphones increasingly becoming an integral part of modern life, Samba has reinvented mobile banking yet again with the roll out of an all-new SambaMobile smartphone and tablet app that’s faster, more secure, more intuitive, easier to use, and filled with new location-based features, including the unique ability to find special offers in the Kingdom and at popular destinations abroad including New York, London and Dubai.

Redesigned with both convenience and utility in mind, the new SambaMobile App lets Samba customers do more on the move with a whole new location-based experience.

This new service reaffirms Samba’s leading position as an innovator in delivering technology driven customer convenience. Samba customers can now shop smarter while enjoying the best mobile banking experience on the go that enables them to perform a multitude of banking transactions anytime, anywhere; view account summaries at a glance, transfer money, make Sadad payments for utilities and government fees, contact Samba for inquiries, and many others, all with a faster, more user-friendly design.

Samba has created versions of the application optimized for any smartphone or tablet running iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Windows and others, downloadable from the Apple Store, GooglePlay, Windows Phone Store, and App World.

More than any other bank in the region, we have been leading the way in innovating ways to let our customers access world class financial solutions easily, instantly, anytime, anywhere, on any channel or device.
