The Benche, an online community for finance professionals supported by SEB, has launched iPhone and Android apps. The new apps allow members of the Benche to conveniently access the online platform from their mobile phone. Users are now able to start threads, make posts, publish blogs, send direct messages to other members, see their photo album and add new pictures through the app from wherever they are in the world.
Hakan Aldrin, director, the Benche, said: “More and more people are using smartphones to access and share information remotely. Now members of the Benche can join conversations in the community away from their computers and keep themselves updated with latest news and topics.”
The apps are version 1.0 and SEB will be fine tuning them, as well as developing them further over time. Benche members can have their say by taking part in an online discussion on the Benche to recommend improvements and new ideas.
The Benche app is available free for download from Android mobile devices or iPhone, and from Android Market and the Apple App Store.
