Insta-Banking is a mobile app launched in September 2014 and is a key enabler in the bank’s omnichannel strategy which is based on the pillars of convenience, easy and safe banking. It is the first of its kind app launched by any bank in India.
This app has been designed for use by all customers who visit ICICI Bank branches to initiate banking transactions at their convenience on the move. The app is integrated with the bank’s Core Banking & Customer Relationship Management system, thereby eliminating the requirement of physical form filling and waiting in queues. Through InstaBanking, customers are able to process both financial and non-financial requests which account for over 70% of services undertaken at branches and can save a minimum 50% of time/ transaction at a branch. Apart from ensuring faster transaction processing, the app optimizes staff productivity as details are already been entered in the bank’s systems thereby eliminating the need to enter them afresh.

The customer is simply required to quote his account number at the ‘May I Help You’ desk to complete the transaction.
Since launch, over 270,000 transactions have been completed through InstaBanking which has been downloaded by over 150,000 customers.
