Empowers customers—retail and business-- with seamless banking services digitally, from home or office, without branch visits
Mumbai: ICICI Bank today announced the launch of ‘ICICIStack’, a set of the country’s most comprehensive digital banking services and APIs (Application Programme Interface) to ensure uninterrupted banking experience to customers—retail and business including retailers, merchants, fintechs, large e-commerce firms, corporates—at a time when they are advised to stay indoors in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak. Many of the services are first-in-the-industry and are available instantly on the Bank’s mobile phone or internet banking platform.
‘ICICIStack’ offers nearly 500 services that covers almost all banking requirements of customers, in one place. The list includes digital account opening (instant savings and current account opening), loan solutions (instant personal loans, instant credit cards, instant home loan sanctions, instant car loans, instant overdraft facility, instant business loans), payment solutions (digital payment solutions like UPI, bill payments using Bharat Bill Payment System), investments (instant FD, PPF, NPS and AI led robo-advisory for other investments), insurance (term and health insurances digitally) and care solutions (protection for life, health, car and home).
Further, ‘ICICIStack’ offers the first digital service that enables instant opening of savings account along with an instant FD or instant PPF, among others.
Speaking about the initiative, Mr. Anup Bagchi, Executive Director, ICICI Bank, said, “We have been working on ‘ICICIStack’ in order to offer customers all digital banking services from one single platform for the past few years. ‘ICICIStack’ is the result of an evolving and pioneering journey to build digital solutions and large capacity to fulfil the vision of Digital India. In the wake of the coronavirus outbreak over the past few weeks, we have added a few new features and services to offer a bouquet of solutions to our customers so that they can experience the banking services uninterrupted.
I believe that in its current form, ‘ICICIStack’ is the most comprehensive digital infrastructure available in the country by a bank as it can facilitate crores of retail customers as well merchants, retailers, professionals, fintechs, start-ups, e-commerce players and corporates, across the country to continue all their banking, digitally and from a remote location, without visiting a bank branch or office. In the recent tie-ups with payment fintechs too, it was the wide array of services, APIs and volume handling capability available within the ‘ICICI Stack’ that enabled quick integrations overnight. We believe that in these challenging times, ‘ICICIStack’ is well poised and committed to support customers for all their banking requirements.”
