People’s Bank Digital Centre opened.


People’s Bank achieves a unique milestone in its digitalization drive with the opening of its fully fledged Digital Center by Prime Minister Hon. Ranil Wickremesinghe at York Street, Colombo 1. Incidentally it becomes the first fully Digitalized Branch thus creating history in Sri Lanka’s banking industry. The Bank is proudly launching Express Banking simultaneously to allow customers to experience how its digitalization initiatives will streamline and simplify their financial affairs by offering speed and convenience. Initially, customers visiting the Digital Center will have Bank staff on hand to assist them to navigate Express Banking on electronic devices provided by the Bank until they feel comfortable to conduct transactions without assistance. The launch of this Digital Center marks a quantum leap for the Bank in its dynamic leadership to become the most digitalized bank by the year 2020, to unlock the benefits of digitalization for its customers.

Commenting on the momentous occasion, Hemasiri Frenando, Chairman of People’s Bank says, “People’s Bank has been an integral pillar in the nation’s development by understanding and responding to customer needs and industry trends. As the bank with one of the largest customer bases in Sri Lanka’s banking industry, People’s Bank has demonstrated its leadership status by initiating digitalization in alignment with the latest consumer and market trends. The launch of the Digital Center marks a proud milestone in our journey to bring the benefits of digitalization banking to the nation.
