Guarantee Trust Bank has launched the 737 app to enable its account holders to access mobile banking services easily. With the 737 app, GTBank now has a total of 4 mobile apps. The previous 3 are GTBank (for mobile banking), GTWorld (for lifestyle) and GTCube (For Mobile Point of Sale for merchants). We only simply hope that GTBank intends to retain its focus: making “The simple life is just one touch away” a reality.

According to Olisatv, the 737 App is fashioned after the banks mobile banking solution, *737#, which was designed to enable account holders to afford some basic banking services dialling codes on their mobile phones. These include account opening, transfers, airtime recharge and BVN code check. There are indications the app will be able to work with other bank cards.
The Key Features of the app includes:
• Register and Link your preferred debit card in a few seconds
• Transfer funds to any bank within Nigeria.
• Buy airtime for yourself and others directly from your phone contact list
The app was updated on the Google Play Store last month.To use it, you must have registered your debit card on the platform, selected a 737 PIN for everyday use and be sure that your phone number is linked to your account. The card only accepts Mastercard and VISA Cards only.
GTBank has made a tremendous impact on the banking sector in Nigeria with its innovative options and lifestyle offers. Recall that the bank’s CEO, Segun Agbaje claimed that the bank acquired 3 million users who carried N1 trillion in transactions within a year on the #737# platform in the past one year.
One of the questions GTBank will ultimately need to answer is: of what benefit is the 737 app when the GTWorld app is available? Then, would customers who hitherto have been used to carrying out transactions by merely dialling codes be comfortable with going the app route?
