Christian Noisternig, Area Head Private Customers, Small Business and Independent Professions at UniCredit Bank Austria: “Our StudentenKonto offers far more than free account maintenance. The innovative features of the MobileBanking app and the app ‘Mobile Geldbörse’ are the banking of a new generation. After the photo transfer, where you only have to take a photo of an invoice and the app automatically completes the transfer form, we were the first bank in Austria to offer ‘transfer money to your phone contacts’. This feature allows sending money quickly and easily to friends and acquaintances. When it comes to easy and fast payments and banking, our innovative features provide the key advantage.”
