Money makes the world go round. Or is it love? Assuming as a hard-nosed MT reader that you favour the former, this entry in the MT/PA Wearables at Work Awards could be right up your street.
It’s Quick Balance, a nifty smart watch app which its creator Nationwide reckons is a UK first. Quick Balance lets you keep a track of your account balance on Apple Watch or Smart Wear devices and what's more there’s no need to log-in.
Nationwide Quick Balance
Check your bank balance with a tap of your watch.
There was a time when finding out the contents of your account required you to walk into a big building with a manager and a vault, but those days are over. Nationwide, the world’s largest building society, developed the UK’s first smart watch app for instant access on the move, without the need for a cumbersome and time-consuming log in. Quick Balance has had 25 million views across all devices over the last six months, with 57,000 on the Apple Watch. As it was developed to be flexible across all devices, it has the potential to be adopted by Nationwide’s 15-million strong customer base.
