SMS ALERT

What is SMS ALERT?

SMS Alert is a proactive approach to providing you with your account information in real time. 

It enables you to manage your account(s) and investment(s) more efficiently. You are immediately prompted through an alert any time a transaction hits your account(s). For instance, when your loan is granted and your account is credited with the funds, SMS Alert will deliver a notice to your mobile phone. Similarly, if an unauthorised transaction is made on your account, you will know almost immediately through our SMS Alert, prompting you to contact the bank for an appropriate redress.

You will enjoy the flexibility to opt for notifications on the following transactions:

Blue Arrow - Bullet ATM withdrawals
Blue Arrow - Bullet Salary Pension payments
Blue Arrow - Bullet Loan disbursement
Blue Arrow - Bullet Cash deposits
Blue Arrow - Bullet Cash withdrawals
Blue Arrow - Bullet Balance on account
Blue Arrow - Bullet Balance drops below set limits
Blue Arrow - Bullet Standing orders
Blue Arrow - Bullet Direct debits
Blue Arrow - Bullet Clearing cheques.

The service offers you a great deal of convenience and saves you frequent branch visits just to make enquiries on simple transactions. SMS Alert simply keeps you informed at all times.
