Baku, Azerbaijan, May 25
By Huseyn Valiyev – Trend:
The International Bank of Azerbaijan and NIKOIL Bank may offer mobile e-signature services to their clients by the end of the year, a source in Azerbaijan’s IT market told Trend.
Presently, this issue is under consideration of the banks and is the subject of discussions with the provider of e-signature certification services.
Recently, the Kapital Bank OJSC has started to offer mobile e-signature services to its clients. The project was implemented jointly with the Information and Computing Center of the Azerbaijani Ministry of Transport, Communications and High Technologies.
The advantage of the project is the optimization of the bank's services offered to clients and simplification of the current procedures. In addition, the certification of documents in electronic form will allow the bank to reduce the use of paper.
Acceleration of the processing of customer requests and expansion of the possibilities of digital banking are also important aspects for the bank.
The clients will be able to obtain the certificate of the mobile e-signature by applying to the branches of Kapital Bank. After the certificate is issued, a mobile number specified by the client will receive an SMS message with a PIN code, which will be active for the next three years. An important component of the mobile e-signature certificate is that it is not bound to operators’ SIM cards.
