Kampala- Crane Bank has announced plans to begin testing 24-hour banking.The service will initially be conducted at the bank’s two branches in Bugolobi on Village Mall and the Kisementi Mall.
While commissioning the Crane Bank Kisementi branch on Tuesday, Mr Joseph Birimbona the bank’s chairman said they are testing the 24-hour operations in the two locations, given that they are unique locations with potential for business growth.
“We have people coming here for entertainment. We have offices and residential houses so these are potential clients we are targeting,” he said.
The current banking environment, he added, requires that they move ahead of other industry players to edge completion.
Much of Uganda’s banking sector has a working duration that runs from 8am to 6pm with 24-hour banking mostly operated on Automated Teller Machines.
