“We are proud to be the first bank in the UAE to launch a mobile application for a deals platform,” says Graham Honeybill, Chief Executive Officer, RAKBANK. “The new engaging application reinforces RAKBANK’s position as a dynamic Bank which offers its customers innovative and flexible products and services that exceed their expectations.”
RAKBANKdeals.ae mobile app is compatible with most popular web-enabled smartphones such as iPhone, Blackberry and Android and can be downloaded from their online application stores.
For GPS enabled mobile phones, and once the user location is identified, the application will show a list of the deals and offers from RAKBANK that are the closest. Cardholders also have the option to select any of the various categories like dining, electronics, entertainment, etc. and all the relevant deals will be displayed. Alternatively, they can search by ‘location’ to find offers in a specific area.
For added convenience, Cardholders are able to share the deals with their family and friends via SMS, e-mail or through social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter.
“The new mobile application is the latest addition to our user-friendly, rewarding digital engagement channels such as our active presence on key social media platforms as well as the Bank’s innovative Mobile and Online Banking solutions,” says Banali Malhotra, Head of Marketing, RAKBANK. “With RAKBANKdeals.ae enjoying a growing popularity, we introduced this new application so our customers can access a wide array of exclusive, attractive deals while they are on the go.”
