New Design, Enhanced UX

Ground-breaking Lifestyle Platform
The iPlanner is the first virtual hub of its kind in Hong Kong. Seamlessly integrating customers’ day-to-day living with various kinds of financial transactions, the iPlanner has the capacity to provide customers with relevant recommendations and exclusive offers.
The iPlanner’s first theme is an advanced travel feature offering an entirely new level of control for planning holidays abroad. The feature operates as a single nexus point through which customers can complete all their travel-related arrangements, such as booking limousines or travel insurance, activating overseas ATM cash withdrawal, increasing credit limit, setting bill payment reminders, etc
By entering a few quick details, customers can set a schedule and a budget, itemising their trip, and can view all expenses in a straightforward pie chart.
When travelling with friends, customers can use a “split costs” function in i-P2P to divide expenses exactly. The app even enables customers to send a payment request to fellow travellers directly or make an instant transfer if they want to settle a shortfall.
iPlanner users can simply sign in with their Facebook account, and will soon be able to take advantage of a generous referral programme.
The enhanced iSpend feature gives credit cardholders an overview of their finances and allows them to make direct payments. It is also linked to the BEA Credit Card’s Bonus Gallery.
Besides, customers can now use the BEA App to make foreign currency exchange. Customers can pick up the currency at any branch afterwards.
The app’s latest rejuvenation is a critical part of the bank’s overarching digital strategy to provide an exceptional customer experience at every touchpoint.
These functionalities and features give new depth to the BEA App’s wide array of existing and recently-added services.
The agency will keep consulting and enhance the BEA app to complete a range of features and all-new services, giving customers a banking freedom never before experienced.
