AMSTERDAM, Netherlands, May 13, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, ING's Director of Corporate Strategy, Dorothy Hillenius, will address the Digital Banking Revolution conference organized by Bank of America Merrill Lynch in London. She will elaborate on how technology and changing customer behaviour are transforming the banking industry, with customers increasingly using different channels in their search for reliable and easy solutions. In addition, she will talk about ING's strategy to earn the primary relationship with the customer and how the bank creates a differentiating customer experience in today's digital era.
Ms. Hillenius will address several concrete examples of how ING stays at the forefront of digital banking. In retail banking, we use advanced analytics in Poland to do credit scoring on existing customers. This way, pre-approved customers can get consumer loans, overdrafts or credit cards via mobile in minutes. The service is currently available for 70,000 customers. In Spain, we launched a fully functional mobile bank in 2014 allowing new customers to open an account in a wink of an eye or existing customers to close a loan in a few minutes time. On the commercial banking side, the bank recently launched 'InsideBusiness', which will give clients 24/7 access to all their products and services from any mobile device.
