ZAO Raiffeisenbank has upgraded the design system for Raiffeisen CONNECT in accordance with the international standards for Raiffeisen Group. The new design provides clients using the Raiffeisen CONNECT system with a higher level of comfort.
Commenting on the new design, Roman Vorobiev, a Member of the Raiffeisenbank's Board, Head of Consumer Banking Directorate, emphasized: «The share of remote banking services in the total volume of banking operations is rising rapidly; this instrument is a very convenient way of monitoring and managing monetary funds, and we are pleased to be able to offer the upgraded design for the Raiffeisen CONNECT system. We hope that our clients will enjoy the new design and Raiffeisenbank's enhanced Internet banking opportunities.»
Previously, Raiffeisenbank's site at www.raiffeisen.ru was upgraded to conform to Raiffeisen Group's standards. In the summer of 2007, a special PDA Internet bank version was introduced for users of pocket computers, and last fall Raiffeisen MOBILE was launched, allowing an interactive exchange of SMS messages with the bank for checking account balances, card flows and exchange rates.
