HÀ NỘI — Vietnam International Bank (VIB) has launched a new mobile banking application - MyVIB 2.0, making it the first bank in the country to apply Augmented Reality (AR) technology in a mobile banking application.
Head of Digital Strategy and Solution Center at VIB Phạm Thu Hà said: "In the field of technology, Cloud computing or Virtual Reality (VR), AR and Mixed Reality (MR) which have been emerging in recent years, have been gradually proving their superiority over traditional technology in optimising infrastructure resources, costs, automation and improving customer experience.
"The launch of MyVIB 2.0 with new technology integrated into mobile banking applications for the first in Việt Nam is our breakthrough in anticipating advanced technology trends in the world and applying them to our banking products and services.
"That contributes to affirming VIB's position as a leading bank in terms of technology application and more importantly, providing users with a different, safe and stable financial experience."
MyVIB 2.0 - the first Cloud Native Mobile Banking application in VN
Earlier in 2021, VIB became one of the first banks in Việt Nam to deploy a multi-cloud computing platform to accelerate the innovation process, bringing differentiated values to better facilitate customers.
In addition to putting existing data or part of an application on the Cloud, VIB has pioneered the Cloud application in the development of the bank's digital platforms and MyVIB 2.0 is the first-ever Cloud Native Mobile Banking application in the country.
According to VIB, the Cloud Native application is programmed entirely on a cloud computing environment. With outstanding advantages including improving system performance, enhancing information security, increasing independent operation of each service, and limiting the level of impact if an attack on services occurs. Cloud Native computing architecture is expected to help VIB better meet demand of customers and improve their experience in using digital banking services.
The bank said it has applied AR technology on MyVIB 2.0 to bring new experiences to customers while they use the bank's services. When performing financial transactions such as managing and paying for cards/accounts, searching for nearby promotions, locating and guiding the location of branches/ATMs, customers will have a perspective enriched by real scenes overlaid with some smartphone-created virtual objects, making their financial transactions more interesting.
A VIB representative said that since its debut, AR technology is projected to be a technological leap into the future. The virtualisation process will support users in all areas from life activities to education and healthcare. Therefore, the trend of applying AR on the bank's MyVIB is to simplify the method of use and relate to the daily needs of users.

Since the launch of MyVIB 1.0 version in 2015, VIB has continuously applied new technology to develop many utilities on the Digital Banking platform.
