Skye Bank Plc has restated its   commitment to providing excellent e-banking and card services to the banking public as a way of easing their difficulty in the course of carrying out banking transactions.

The bank which took part in the just concluded 2009 “Card  Expo Africa” organized by Intermac Consulting, said its range of card products were designed for the various segments of bank customers and businessmen.

According to a statement signed by the bank’s Head of Corporate Affairs, Kayode Akinyemi, the bank said its Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) and cards fall in the bracket of the best and the most efficient in the country with little or no incident of  malfunctioning.

Specifically, the bank explained that the efficient nature of its ATMs accounted for the high traffic on its network on a daily basis, stressing that it would continue to uphold service excellence and customer satisfaction.

Among the bank’s range of card products and e-banking products are the Skye Cash card, Skye Visa Cards, mobile banking, among others.

The statement further said the bank was poised to assist the Federal Government in making the e-payment policy a huge success by deploying its efficient e-banking platforms in this regard.

It would be recalled that Skye Bank has consistently introduced e-banking products and has remained a leader in innovative card services and mobile banking. Recently, the bank introduced the first ever cash deposit automated teller machines to make banking more convenient for its customers.

Last week, a leading consulting firm, Intermarc Consulting, organized the 2009 ‘Card Expo Africa” where leading e-card and e-payment operating  banks showcased their card products and other e-products.

Among others, the expo came on stream against the background of the fact that the Federal Government has adopted e-payment for the payment of staff salaries and contractors’ wages. Besides, all the financial transactions of the government are done via e-payment.
