In 80 days we say goodbye to the “old” Internet Banking TB
Today, we begin the countdown of the last 80 days of "old" Internet BankingTB. From 1 November, all Tatra banka clients will use the 3rd generation Internet BankingTB with a modern design and innovative features.
"Our clients started using Internet banking as the first in Slovakia 15 years ago. They have learnt to arrange almost everything from the comfort of their home, which has resulted in almost 14 times more domestic payments made via Internet banking than at branches," says Juraj Bojkovský, Director of the Electronic Distribution Channels Division of Tatra banka.
While 15 years ago, clients made 60 transactions per day using Internet BankingTB, today it is over 60,000 transactions, which is a thousand times more. Internet BankingTB is mostly used by clients to make transfer orders so they spend several minutes managing their finances every day. Therefore, it is important for Internet BankingTB to be simple, secure and with an eye-catching design.
"Clients are much more independent, they have brought bank branches home to their computers. By creating new Internet banking, we have innovated this virtual banking environment to enable their more efficient work. A typical example is the list of transactions that customers can edit as an ordinary table - move columns, sort or export transactions by various criteria. Clients also like to use the Quick Payment in three clicks function, which allows making a payment order anywhere in Internet banking, for example while browsing the development of supplementary pension saving," adds Juraj Bojkovský.

Tatra banka introduced the beta version of new Internet bankingTB in autumn 2011 operating simultaneously with the original version, giving clients enough time to get used to the new environment. Since the implementation of new business features - with particular emphasis on legislative changes concerning the implementation of SEPA is uneconomical for both versions, only the new version of Internet banking will be available from 1 November 2013.
