NCBS is launching the first building society app which will allow its customers to view all their savings and mortgage accounts on one platform. Available to download today on Apple mobile devices* the NCBS mobile app boasts a wide range of benefits for NCBS account holders who wish to manage their accounts on the go, without having to login to a PC or visit our branch.

Key features of the mobile app include the ability to check balances and latest transactions, transfer money between NCBS savings accounts^, make withdrawals to pre-nominated bank accounts^, pay into savings accounts using a pre-registered debit card^, as well as check the latest interest rates for savings accounts.

Whilst all NCBS savings and mortgage products can be viewed on the mobile app, it has been designed and launched with the new Online Saver account in mind. Opened and operated entirely online, this flexible savings account offers a variable interest rate and allows for unlimited withdrawals, without notice or penalty, of up to £25,000 per day. The account is currently boasting an interest rate of 2.31% Gross AER.

Keith Barber, Associate Director Business Development at National Counties Building Society, said: “The new mobile app demonstrates our commitment to providing convenient transactional solutions for our customers. Allowing users to check and manage their NCBS accounts whilst on the go is a significant technological development which aims to support a segment of our clientele who might not otherwise come into our branch. It also demonstrates that NCBS is capable of matching the products and services offered by much larger organisations in the UK.”
