The Alliance & Leicester has said that it plans to introduce mobile phone banking for personal customers in early 2007. Customers will be able to gain access to their current accounts, requesting mini-statements and checking their account balance at any time.
Customers will be provided with a pass code when they sign up for the service. Once personal details have been verified in any one transaction, they will be removed from the phone.
“Accessing banking details via a mobile phone is the next natural step and one we think our current account customers will embrace,” said Ian Tandy, director of e-commerce at A&L.
