Access Bank Plc has launched an offline banking platform in a bid to deepen financial inclusion for customers to manage and carry out uninterrupted daily transactions.

The bank’s Deputy Managing Director, Victor Etuokwu, during the launch held in Lagos, said the offline platform- 901.ng is aimed at redefining convenience and ensuring uninterrupted access to financial services even in the absence of internet connectivity.

“In today’s fast-paced digital age, connectivity is often taken for granted. However, millions of individuals worldwide still face challenges accessing online banking services due to various reasons such as poor internet infrastructure, remote locations, or security concerns,” he said.

“Recognising this gap, Access Bank has developed this solution to empower our customers to bank securely, anytime, anywhere, irrespective of internet availability,” he said.

“As part of its ongoing commitment to excellence, Access Bank will continue to evolve its offerings to meet the evolving needs of its diverse customer base.

“We are committed to leveraging technology to enhance the banking experience for all our customers. With the introduction of our offline banking platform 901.ng, we are breaking barriers and empowering individuals and businesses to manage their finances with confidence, even in offline environments,” she said.

She said non-smartphone phone users can send money, buy airtime, and pay bills whilst incurring no extra fees or hidden charges with no internet subscription required.
