Former President of the Nigerian Bar Association and the Institute’s Chairman-In-Council, Dame Priscilla Kuye, who handed over the award to Enterprise Bank Limited’s Taiwo Omoyeni and Nelson Ochonogor at the just concluded annual African Products Forum, said the Master Card Verve was singled out for recognition because of its acceptability in the market place and its unprecedented patronage within the short period of its introduction.
Enterprise Bank Mastercard Verve is an international brand of MasterCard, which was launched a couple of months ago in partnership with MasterCard and Interswitch. The card is accepted worldwide as a means of payment for goods and services at over 30.9 million MasterCard locations and over 1.9million ATMs in more than 210 countries.
With the Enterprise MasterCard Verve, transactions can also be consummated in the currency of the country as long as the card is linked to the customer’s Naira account. The successful roll-out exercise follows a strong bid by the bank to guarantee convenient banking services to its growing clientele.
The Enterprise MasterCard Verve is available at all branches of Enterprise Bank for easy pick-up by customers with active accounts in the bank while those customers reactivating their accounts and the new ones have the card as part of their ‘Welcome Pack’.
A statement from the Corporate Communications Department of the bank added that the process of collecting and benefiting from the convenience of the award winning card has also been simplified to ensure quicker delivery upon the completion of the relevant e-business form. In addition, all existing Verve Card holders, whose cards have expired, will automatically be migrated to MasterCard Verve as soon as they conclude the renewal process as demanded by the bank.
While thanking the Institute for Government Research & Leadership Technology for the honour done to the bank and its product, the statement reiterated that upgrading to the Enterprise Master Card Verve is also part of the commitment by the bank to delight its customers with more value added service as well as ensure the success of the cash-lite initiative in the country.
