Belgian bank KBC is integrating services from non-banks into its apps, enabling customers to pay for their parking and check the balance on employer-issued meal vouchers.

In what it claims is a Belgian first, KBC has teamed up with the firms behind the 4411 parking app and Monizze card on the feature, which will roll out this summer.

The bank's customers will be able to pay for parking spaces in 50 cities and towns from within the KBC app, with the cost automatically charged to their account.

Meanwhile, customers can pair their Monizze card to the KBC app and then check the balance of their meal vouchers and 'ecochecques'.

Monizze cards are a popular tool for firms in Belgium to distribute benefits to employees. More than 70,000 companies use them to provide nearly two million staffers with meal vouchers, while thousands of employers give ecocheques to encourage the purchase of ecological products and services.

Karin van Hoecke, GM, private customers, KBC, says: "By also incorporating non-banking applications into the KBC/CBC/KBC Brussels Mobile app, KBC significantly raises the accessibility and ease of use of these applications for its customers. In the future, as well, we'll be continuing to actively seek out partners that can help enhance our banking apps and applications and help increase added value for our customers."
