KBC seeks mobile app partnership

Belgium bank KBC with its mobile banking app is seeking to form a partnership to broaden its third-party services.

According to KBC, it’s looking to offer third-party financial and non-financial products and services to its mobile customers. By providing support to selected third-parties, KBC says it wants to “strengthen” its service, and this call for interest is the first step in reaching out and potentially partnering up.

KBC says it wants people’s input and welcomes those interested in a partnership to contact no later than 25 December.

Last year, ING and KBC joined forces to launch a new, integrated mobile payments and loyalty platform in Belgium.

This combined ING’s payment app Payconiq with loyalty platforms Qustomer and KBC’s CityLife.

In addition to its mobile banking services in Belgium, KBC earlier in the year unveiled a new mobile app that allows Irish customers to open, activate and use their bank account “at any time, within just five minutes”.
