FNB is expanding the functionality of its banking app, with the launch of new savings, health and fitness goal tracking through Nav Money and Nav Wellness.
The Nav platform launched on FNB’s banking app in 2016, starting with home tools (Nav Home) to help customers buy and sell property; this then expanded to vehicles (Nav Car), allowing customers to pay fines and renew vehicle licences, and then to general finance (Nav Money) to track spending and credit scores.
Most recently, the platform opened up for customers to safely book and pay for domestic and international flights on the FNB App, with savings of up to 40% in discounts from major airlines.
The bank is now introducing savings tracking to Nav Money, and introducing Nav Wellness, which will let customers track various health and fitness goals, and offer discounts on healthy lifestyle services.
Nav Money savings
The saving goals process has been designed to calculate how much a customer needs to save for a goal, recommend a personalised savings solution and include the ability to track progress, FNB said.
It gives customers the option of maintaining 10 main savings goals categories, including: education, emergencies, travel, save to start a business as well as health and wellness – and has over 50 different sub categories. Customers also have an option to create and name their own goal..
The new wellness features help customers setup and track their health and fitness journey on the FNB App.
Customers fill-in a questionnaire to gain insights into their wellness score before setting goals to improve that score.
A separate feature enables customers to order prescription medicine from their nearest Dis-Chem, from within the FNB App, and get notified when it is ready for collection, the group said.
“The bank has also negotiated attractive discounts with a number of health and wellness partners to help customers navigate their wellness journey with great savings. There are several permanent discounts, and a monthly deals section with exciting discounts that refresh monthly,” the bank said.
