RHB Bank Berhad (“RHB Bank”) has recently launched the RHB MyHome App and Banking-at-Your-Doorstep service to better meet customer needs.
Catering to increasingly digital-savvy customers, the app is the first of its kind in the industry to provide convenience of mortgage applications and documents submissions via Mobile devices; whilst the Banking-at-Your-Doorstep service enables new customers who have opened an RHB Smart Account/RHB Smart Account-i online to complete the process without having to visit the bank branches.
The introduction of both digital solutions is part of the digital transformation currently undertaken by RHB to offer simple, fast and seamless banking experience to customers.
The RHB MyHome App enables customers to apply for home financing, and submit their documents online as well as to check their application status, in just a few clicks. Customers will also have easy and quick access to information on financing options available to them, pricing, eligibility and rates. The app is available on App Store and Google Play Store and allows customers access anytime, anywhere.
The Banking-at-Your-Doorstep service includes the delivery of customers’ debit cards to their homes or workplaces, at a pre-arranged time where an on-the-spot verification process will be conducted.
“In line with our brand promise of ‘Together we Progress’, we have remained steadfast to our commitment of delivering customer-centric innovations that support a simple, fast and seamless banking experience. At RHB, our mission is to develop and introduce digital solutions that are versatile and responsive to the needs of our customers,” said Dato’ Khairussaleh Ramli, Group Managing Director of RHB Banking Group.
The Group has also launched the Banking-at-Your-Doorstep service for new users of the RHB Smart Account/RHB Smart Account-I within the Klang Valley.
Customers who choose to open an account online can activate their account and take delivery of their debit cards at home or their workplace at a pre-arranged time where an on-the-spot verification process will be conducted by the bank’s very own Rider. Banking- At-Your-Doorstep will be extended to other Regions within Malaysia over the next few months.

In 2018, more than 50,000 RHB Smart Account/RHB Smart Account-i are expected to be opened, from which 30% are expected to opt for the Banking-at-Your-Doorstep service.
