As technology continues to advance faster than ever in our everyday lives, so do opportunities to implement these technologies and great features that make everyday banking easier.

Over the next couple of months there will be multiple updates to our everyday banking services including our Mobile Banking app, Online Banking, real-time payments and more.

Digital Banking

It’s been encouraging to see more customers than ever using the Qudos Bank app. We are looking forward to releasing new features that will help make everyday banking easier and safer, such as adding secure mail within the app, added push notifications for payments, transfers, overdue accounts and more.

These push notifications will be an added security benefit to your account and will help you keep track of activity on your accounts, it will also enable you to act fast if something doesn’t seem quite right. Keep an eye on our website and Facebook page for more information on when these features will be available.

We are excited to continue working on enhancements and updates to ensure our Mobile Banking app meets your banking needs and your feedback is important to us and will help shape future updates. If you have any feedback or suggestions please feel free to send us a message about your app experience via the app feedback option, located under the contact us section of the menu.

Real-time Payments update

Later this year, there will also be updates to our real-time payments service which will allow faster, easier and safer payments. This will be phase two of the industry initiative introduced by the New Payments Platform in 2019 through the Osko by BPAY service. It will include more instant payments and transfers, account and transaction notifications and limit changes. Detailed information will be available over the coming months, stay tuned.

Open Banking

We are working to launch Open Banking within the next couple of months. This will enable you to share your financial information (such as your transaction history and account balances) with accredited third parties (such as other banks or financial institutions). Open Banking is designed to make it easier and safer to collect your financial information across multiple financial institutions for budgeting, to apply for banking products or to switch accounts. Keep an eye on our website for more information on Open Banking and what it means for you.

Dave's Tech Tip:

There are many apps available to download on your smart device to help keep you organised. Often apps that come with your smart phone are overlooked but can be a very helpful tool, for example, 'Reminders' for iPhone or 'Google assistant' for Android have the ability to create, categorise and share to do lists and set daily or custom reminders and alerts.
