Opening hours extended from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 30 branches of Bank Austria in Vienna starting from October 2014

  • After a successful pilot scheme at the new Wieden Branch, 30 Bank Austria branches in Vienna (including Schwechat) will extend their opening hours on weekdays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. starting from October this year
  • Bank Austria is thus significantly enhancing services and advice offered to customers
  • The main reasons for this move are very positive feedback from customers and the objective of further raising customer satisfaction

Bank Austria successfully piloted new opening hours at its first new-style branch in Vienna’s Wiedner Hauptstrasse. From 1 and 31 October 2014, a total of 30 branches in Vienna (including Schwechat) will now extend their opening hours on weekdays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Willibald Cernko, Chief Executive Officer of Bank Austria: “Extending opening hours is another strategic move towards the ‘Bank of the Future’. This is an important step in the ongoing transformation of Bank Austria’s business model with the objective of strengthening our leading position as a modern universal bank. We are thereby also enhancing the importance of branches while making banking services available via new media.” Helmut Bernkopf, Bank Austria Management Board member with responsibility for retail and corporate banking: “We are confident that this measure will further increase customer satisfaction and additionally strengthen our position as innovation leader in the Austrian banking industry. Moreover, we thereby also aim to attract a significant number of new customers.”

The introduction of the new opening hours initially focuses on Vienna as a core market (including Schwechat) because there is a sufficiently large number of major branches in highly frequented locations in this area. Offering extended opening hours also requires an adequate number of employees working in the branches. Results from surveys covering over 35,000 customers every year and very positive feedback from customers on the new opening hours at the pilot branch in Wieden have been the main factors leading to the bank’s decision to introduce extended opening hours at additional branches.
