Swedish direct bank, SkandiaBanken is to offer WAP banking services to its 350,000 electronic banking customers.
The bank has developed a customised WAP banking application for the new service based upon the WTLS version of the Enterprise WAP Server from US-based Infinite.
SkandiaBanken customers will be able to use the service to view balances on all of their accessible accounts, transfer money between accounts, view statements and look for user-defined transactions. Trading with stocks and funds, checking the status of orders, as well as news and other information services are also available.
"Ultimately our users will choose and deploy a wide variety of WAP devices," says Per Lundkvist, head of IT for Skandiabanken. "Among the products that we evaluated, the Infinite Enterprise WAP Server was the logical choice...because it does not limit the customer to a specific phone or manufacturer."
