23 September 2016 Current Affairs: Vijaya Bank has launched three innovative information technology (IT) products, coinciding with Hindi Diwas celebrations.
The new IT products, according to Kishore Sansi, Managing Director and CEO of Vijaya Bank, are: VPAYQWIK, Vijaya *99# and V-eConnect+.
VPAYQWIK, a complete mobile payment wallet, is a one-stop destination for shopping, quick mobile recharge, any-time bill payment, instant ticket booking, and a lot more. This wallet, available in English, Hindi and Kannada, can be used by the bank’s customers as well as others who are not. Vijaya *99# is a non-internet-based app. It uses the USSD channel for completing transactions and supports 12 languages: English, Hindi, Bengali, Telugu, Tamil, Marathi, Kannada, Gujarati, Odia, Malayalam, Assamese, and Punjabi.
And, V-eConnect+ is an app that aggregates various e-products of the bank. The app acts as an entry point for customers to know about and use various online products of the bank.
Customers can access seven different mobile apps, three websites, two missed call services, five social banking channels and five other features through this single app, which is available in English, Hindi and Kannada.
The new products were launched in the presence of Executive Directors BS Rama Rao, Y Nageswara Rao and General Managers of the bank. Launch comes close on the heel of the Vijaya-UPI app, which the bank released late last month.
