Azimo pushes the button on voice-activated money transfer through Siri

19 October 2016  |  2782 views  |  0 Source: Azimo

Azimo, the money transfer service with the largest digital network, today launches a brand new version of its mobile app, designed to revolutionise the mobile transfer experience for both Apple and Android users.

On the iPhone, the app will allow users to transfer money through the voice-activated Siri system. Customers can simply transfer money by telling Siri the amount of money they want to send and the recipient’s name.

Azimo has redesigned both its Android and iOS apps to create a tailor-made experience for each platform. Google’s Material Design philosophy has guided the look and feel on Android, while the conventions of iOS 10 have been used to create a bespoke experience on Apple devices.

The redesign process has focused relentlessly on usability, with real customers taking part in Azimo’s testing and feedback process. In addition to Siri integration, key features of the new apps include:

- Redesigned navigation, to make getting around the apps as simple as possible.

- Overhaul of the user journey for both apps - ensuring the money transfer experience is fast, slick and with fewer clicks and swipes

- The creation of user profiles, allowing people to easily see and edit the payment information of their contacts.

“As a society, our relationship with mobile has changed. It’s no longer an add-on to everyday life; it’s a fundamental part of it. At Azimo, our obsession is to continually innovate to improve our customers’ experience. With new features like integration with Siri and the Facebook Messenger chatbot launched recently, we want to make transferring money as easy and rewarding as possible for everyone across every device,” said Marta Krupinska, General Manager of Azimo.

“Our number one goal as a business is to provide the service our customers want and need - letting them transfer money globally while avoiding the hidden costs normally associated with that. That means constant innovations to the service we provide and this new development is a major stage in that journey.” said Dan Martins, Azimo’s Head of Product.

The iOS app is in-store now and new customers can download it here.

Existing Azimo customers can get the free iOS upgrade now by simply clicking the App Store icon and tapping “updates” in the bottom right.

The Android version will launch on Friday 21st October and can be downloaded from the Google Play store and an update will be available for existing customers.
