KBC Makes Life Convenient
After introducing several day-to-day features via its banking app, KBC is now adding more time-saving and convenient services. Starting the second half of March, KBC mobile users in Belgium will be able to drive into and out of Q-Park car parks using number plate recognition and pay automatically with the app.
In addition, KBC is also allowing users to rent a shared bike following a partnership with Olympus Mobility. Through the banking app, users will be able to search for a nearby bike station and reserve, unlock, and pay for their bike, all without the need to create a separate account with shared bike providers.
“These two new additional services will once again save our customers a lot of time. Just link your number plate once to park with ease in no time. Or rent a shared bike for the day at the last minute to cycle the last part of your journey. Over a million customers use KBC Mobile and log in at least once a day. Additional third-party services available through our KBC Mobile app since last year are already a success. That’s certainly helped by the fact that customers can use them without having to install a separate app. Figures for the end of February 2019 speak for themselves: 181,000 parking sessions via 4411, 182,000 De Lijn public transport tickets and 60,500 SNCB train tickets. Our Mobile app lets our customers use the mobility solution that suits them best on the fly.” – General Manager of Digital Transformation in Belgium at KBC, Karin Van Hoecke.
